Industrial Design Graduate John Modestine ’11 Designs Portable Power Charger Product

Philadelphia University alumnus John Modestine ’11 has designed POP, also known as “Portable Power.” The white-cylindrical recharging station features four retractable cord reels, each with dual-functioning iPhone/micro USB adapters. The inventive charger is quickly gaining both high praise and sales.

Modestine, a recent graduate of the PhilaU industrial design program, has prior experience in product design consulting and graphic design. In October 2011 he was hired as a product designer at Edison Junior Design Laboratory in Santa Monica, CA, where he designed POP.

POP can simultaneously charge four devices at once.

The product, noted by ABC News as one of the “Top 5 Gadgets of the Week” and listed as one of the “Best Tech Projects You Can Fund on Kickstarter” by Business Insider, has been designed to provide power wherever you may need it. POP’s rechargeable 25,000 mAh battery makes it the largest portable device charger available.

This innovative portable charging device has already exceeded its Kickstarter goal with over 630 “backers.” Having already made agreements with a large partner and investor, POP will be able to be manufactured and shipped by December 2012.
