Get the power you need, anytime, anywhere with the revolutionary new mobile power system.

Lilliputian Systems Inc. has completed the development of, and has recently launched its first product based on the revolutionary Silicon Power Cell™ technology – nectar™. nectar is a compact, lightweight and portable “plug-less” charger that powers and charges a variety of Consumer Electronics (CE) products, such as smart phones, tablets, mp3 players, eReaders, bluetooth headsets and digital cameras – virtually any USB compatible device. This game-changing product has the capacity to power/recharge CE devices for several weeks on a single Power Pod without the need for traditional wall outlets. To the consumer, it is like having a wall outlet in their pocket. The Power Pods are safe, easy-to-use, inexpensive and recyclable. The extended run-time and “instant recharge” features of the nectar™ provides long-lasting power for CE devices users, and its ability to work with multiple devices reduces the need for consumers to carry multiple cables and power adapters. nectar has been engineered to be environmentally friendly – six times more efficient than a traditional charger that is plugged into a wall outlet. Equivalently stated, the nectar can cut the consumers’ carbon footprint by 83% when charging their CE devices. The product has been approved for international shipping, and for carry-on and use aboard aircraft by the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Simply put, the nectar offers a superior, convenient solution to the myriad of CE power challenges faced by today’s user. Future products include additional Mobile Power Systems as well as integrated OEM solutions for powering a wide range of CE devices.

about nectar

Lilliputian Systems, Inc. was founded by former researchers of the world renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology ("MIT") Microsystems Technology Laboratory ("MTL"). The Company, headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts, secured exclusive licenses from MIT and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories for certain aspects of the technology and has raised over $100 million in venture capital financing to commercialize its core technology, the Silicon Power Cell™

Using this technology, Lilliputian has developed the world's first Personal Power™ solution for Consumer Electronics (CE) devices, a revolutionary and disruptive family of products targeted at the $50B portable power market. Lilliputian's award-winning breakthrough solution, nectar™, delivers the only viable small form-factor battery replacement that provides the enormous run-time improvements demanded by today's CE devices. Lilliputian's technology both complements today's devices and can seamlessly integrate into future devices – all while ensuring the consumer enjoys an essentially infinite supply of Personal Power™ for their CE devices.

In 2012, Lilliputian announced Brookstone as its first retail partner for nectar™. Brookstone will market, distribute and sell the product through their various distribution channels such as catalog, Brookstone.com, and retail stores including airport and mall locations.
