Morrisville, NC – May 13, 2021 – Today Lenovo announced Lenovo Go, a new sub-brand uniting a range of purpose-built PC accessories that are made for better mobile productivity and designed for a hybrid workforce within an ecosystem that works better together. Introducing the first in a line of new accessories coming soon, the new Lenovo Go USB-C Laptop Power Bank (20,000 mAh) and Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse offer solutions to power anxiety and easy input method to multiple devices.
Lenovo’s recent Future of Work and Digital Transformation study revealed that a vast majority of businesses surveyed (83 percent) expect to work remote at least half the time, and 60 percent of employees not only agree but are happy to do so. As more and more businesses adopt remote working policies, the attention turns to the technology that must enable effective collaboration, boost individual performance and productivity, and maximize engagement and motivation. Lenovo Go aims to deliver the complementary tools that efficiently bridge the gap between office, home and in between and transform a good experience to a great experience. Accessories need to live up to the expectation that they can and should be easy to use and enhance work-from-anywhere.
Delivering a collection of human-inspired products that are built upon user insights, Lenovo Go will focus on helping people work productively, anytime and anywhere. The sub-brand will offer a suite of accessories within specific categories that address the most common pain points of flexible working:
- Power: Low battery anxiety or occupied power outlets in public locations are one of the biggest challenges highly mobile workers face. Lenovo GO’s power solutions will give people back control of their uptime with a range of wired and wireless charging solutions coming soon. First to announce is the Lenovo Go USB-C Laptop Power Bank. Featuring a huge 20,000 mAh capacity with a 65-watt power output, it’s designed to be enough to charge a laptop at least once and can charge up to three devices simultaneously enabling uninterrupted work.1
- Input: Mice and keyboards in the Lenovo Go family will feature a number of innovations to suit dynamic work environments, allowing users to quickly shift between working modes and locations. Light and compact forms with ergonomic designs, wireless connection and charging capabilities are essential for a productive workspace. With more devices coming soon, today Lenovo is introducing the Lenovo Go Wireless Multi-Device Mouse. With many remote workers having more than one device and enjoying the flexibility they give; the multi-device mouse allows pairing of up to three devices with easy cycling between them at the touch of a button. What’s more, the utility button can be programmed for rapid meeting shortcuts, and not only is the mouse wirelessly connected, it can also be wirelessly charged through a compatible Qi charging solution or via USB-Type C.
- Audio: As a crucial element in the collaboration experience, audio quality is often taken for granted and therefore overlooked leading to frustration and poor meeting experiences. The audio devices from Lenovo Go are engineering from the ground up to solve ambient noise, sound quality and ease of use challenges. Lenovo Go audio solutions will be announced later in 2021.
