D&H ENCOURAGES RETAILERS TO OFFER BATTERY PACKS, ACCESSORIES TO ADDRESS POKEMON GO

-- D&H Wants its Dealers and Retailers to Take Advantage of the Pokémon GO Craze, Leveraging an Array of External Smart Phone Batteries and Bluetooth Headsets --

HARRISBURG, PA - July 21, 2016 - D&H Distributing, the leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, wants its retailers, etailers and dealers to profit from the latest trends--including the wild popularity of Niantic's Pokémon GO mobile game, which has users running-down smartphone batteries with abandon across the country. Retailers can capitalize on this phenomenon by offering any of the hundreds of portable power bank products D&H carries, which can be part of an accessory bundle for smartphones and mobile devices. The distributor offers portable chargers and external batteries from manufacturers including Incipio, myCharge, GO PUCK, Survivor, BodyGuardz and more, including the "HyperJuice Pearl" Compact Mirror and USB Rechargeable Battery Pack, a novel combination product by Hyper. Several of these manufacturers, including Incipio, offer items in colors that coordinate with Pokémon GO teams (blue, red, yellow).

In addition, audio continues to be a hot category, with Bluetooth accessories that can be rolled into a Pokémon GO bundle. Bluetooth headsets in fact may become a more essential accessory going forward, as certain device manufacturers are trending away from the incorporation of headphone jacks. D&H offers Bluetooth headphones from Jabra, Plantronics, Samsung and more, in a range of price points.

"We try to motivate our retailers and dealers to think outside the box, and to take advantage of trends. Creative concepts and market developments like this one can often inspire accessory bundles that offer higher margins than hardware sales," said Rob Eby, vice president of purchasing at D&H Distributing.  "We always encourage add-on sales to build incremental revenues. Fueled by the explosive popularity of Pokémon GO, an accessories package could create a notable draw for retailers, especially on the brick-and-mortar sales floor."
