LM Engineering Designs LLC, an Atlanta-based Startup, is introducing a new version of their very successful charge only USB Adapter, LockedUSB MK2. LockedUSB MK2 Adapter provides peace-of-mind while charging your device at Public Charging Stations or Computer USB Ports. LockedUSB Adapter MK2 allows portable devices to fast-charge at their maximum rated current, while keeping the data lines safe and completely isolated. To cover production costs, the company is launching its new device on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter on November 13th, 2014. LockedUSB Adapter MK2 is much smaller than it predecessor, it's only 1.5'' long by 0.7'' wide, making it the smallest USB Charger firewall in the market; while still keeping its internal dedicated controller. LockedUSB Adapter MK2 will fully comply with FCC Part 15 (On the US) & CE (in EU), you will have the peace of mind that the adapter will be thoroughly tested by a certified 3rd Party Certification House. It will not interfere with any of your other devices. It will ship in a fully retail ready package, sealed and protected with a 1 Year Limited Warranty. Last year, LM Engineering Designs, successfully ran a campaign that raised more than 200% of its initial funding goal. They kept their backers well informed during the entire process, and the feedback was positive. Last year researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology produced fake chargers, they’ve named “Mactans”, that do more than just charge your phone. They install custom, malicious applications onto iPhones and gain access to all of your personal data. Last month Security Experts said, “There is no quick fix for BadUSB Hack”. BadUSB, a critical security USB flaw identified earlier this year, can be exploited by hackers using practically any USB device. Recently experts published it’s code online, and the issue is spreading like wildfire. LockedUSB Charger Firewall was designed specifically to protect you from this alarming development. LockedUSB MK2 completely isolate the data lines from the charger and keep intruders away from your personal information. Leonardo Matute, founder and Vice-President of Hardware Development at LM Engineering Designs, said the adapter will bring peace of mind to millions of people that charge their device on the go. “Many people don’t think about their information being compromised by a charger,” Leo said. “LockedUSB will not only secure privacy, but it will also allow the devices to charge at their maximum rated current reducing charging times considerable” Dave Graham, Supporter and Beta Tester from their original campaign, said “Used it in several airports and it passes charge and blocks data. does the job efficiently. I have it attached to the end of my primary charging cable for my phone. Love it.” www.lockedusb.com/shop Kickstarter campaign
