Eirtech In Seat USB Power Solution

Eirtech In Seat USB Power Solution

Eirtech Aviation Services have developed an In Seat USB Power solution for retrofit onto existing seat types. The increasing use of portable electronic devices (PEDs) on board aircraft means that more and more airline passengers require the ability to charge their devices during flights.

The rising prevalence of Wireless IFE system which require the user to bring their own device in order to access flight specific information, on-board shopping and In Flight Entertainment (IFE) content means that airlines and operators must provide passengers with some way to charge their portable electronic device. Otherwise the ancillary benefits of Wireless IFE systems are negated.
