East Palo Alto, California, December 10, 2017- Passport, the new travel adapter with an auto-resetting fuse from Zendure, is among this year's recipients for the 2017 Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design's annual GOOD DESIGN® Awards in recognition of its unique features and attractive design. Other winners in the electronics category include the iPhone 7 and the new MacBook.
Passport has drawn over $300,000 USD in crowdfunding since its launch, with many customers eager to experience Zendure's innovative approach to international travel adapters. Key features include an auto-resetting fuse, four USB outputs, single-handed "press and slide operation", and a smart shield for child safety.
"We are so grateful that Passport is being recognized for its unique features and beautiful design," said Zendure CEO Bryan Liu. "People who are traveling already have a lot on their minds, and we wanted to come up with a travel adapter that they wouldn't have to worry about."
Zendure commissioned San Francisco's Y Studios for the industrial design of Passport.
