About Plugable Technologies

What if we could build a better device company?

Plugable Technologies is one of the world’s best-known brands for USB, Bluetooth, and Charging devices. We created the company from the ground up to focus on better products, better information, and better support than you’ll find from any traditional electronics company. Focusing on online sales allows us to make more up-to-date information available to anticipate and solve problems. It also allows us to learn from customers and quickly improve our products using that feedback. We sell globally, mostly using Amazon’s FBA platform in USA, Canada, UK, Japan, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and 22 other countries in Europe.

Plugable Team June 2014

Plugable was founded in September 2009 and grew from humble beginnings. Bernie’s garage and kitchen table were the “shipping department” until Plugable moved into outside offices in March 2011.
