VoltSafe WINS 2 CES 2023 Innovation Awards


VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – (November 16, 2022) VoltSafe Inc. today announced it has been named a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree for TWO of its innovative product solutions:  VoltSafe Home, Powered by the Ideal Switch® (by Menlo Micro) and VoltSafe Marine.

VoltSafe shared a recent announcement regarding a strategic collaboration with Menlo Microsystems, Inc. (Menlo Micro) to bring VoltSafe’s flagship technology to market in the sleekest, most efficient embodiments possible. Both companies are strong proponents of advancing how the world connects to electricity and the combination of Menlo Micro’s Ideal Switch technology with VoltSafe’s advanced smart electrical outlet and connector enables the future of next-gen smart power connectivity.

VoltSafe is a CES exhibitor in the Venetian’s “Smart Home” section (booth #52161) where the company, with Menlo Micro, will showcase its most advanced novel conductive connector and outlet designs to date. This is VoltSafe’s inaugural CES appearance, demonstrating the successful progress and maturation of its Home product since originally being featured successfully on CBC’s “Dragons’ Den” in 2018.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 28 consumer technology product categories. This year’s program received a record high number of over 2,100 submissions. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, and engineers, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic, and design. VoltSafe earned the nod as a
CES Innovation Awards Honoree for TWO of its patented flagship tech product solutions:

VoltSafe Home Powered by the Ideal Switch®:  As seen on CBC’s Dragons’ Den (Canada), VoltSafe Home connectors provide real-time energy-monitoring at the outlet level, with ‘smart plug’ capabilities and unprecedented safety. VoltSafe is in collaboration with Menlo Micro on a version integrating its novel Ideal Switch.

VoltSafe Marine: VS Marine connectors set a new standard of safety and efficiency in shore power and EV charging that is scalable for pleasurecraft, industrial shipping & defence sectors, by minimizing corrosion that leads to dangerous arcing and sparks that cause boat and marina fires or electrocution.

VoltSafe CEO, Trevor Burgess stated, “VoltSafe technology is the first major innovation to pronged plugs since Thomas Edison first brought electricity into our homes in 1879, and Hubbell patented pronged electrical plug-outlet design in 1905. Bringing it to life, and now being named a CES Innovation Awards Honoree for not one, but TWO, of our inventive product solutions, reinforces the key value proposition that VoltSafe’s patented conductive tech will bring to the world.”
