Dometic was a winner of this year’s iF DESIGN AWARD, a world-renowned design prize. The winning product, portable lithium battery Dometic PLB40, won in the discipline Product Design, in the Outdoor category. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, Hannover-based iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD.
Dometic PLB40 won over the 67-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, with its innovative design concept backed by new technology Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) in outdoor usages. The competition was intense: 6,375 entries were submitted from 52 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.
Samuele Meda, Head of Product Design at Dometic Group says; “Design concept of the Dometic PLB40 brings a completely new product category to the market. Powered by LiFePO4, this portable power pack is among the most compact and lightweight in its class while delivering unparalleled power performance.
“Robust, outdoor-proof construction with ergonomically designed stainless steel carry-handle makes the Dometic PLB40 easy to carry and use in multiple environments from family camping to the most rugged expeditions. Last but not least, convenient three-way charging allows users to charge the battery on-the-go eliminating the need for a dual battery set-up.”
