The Story Behind Power Perch

The Story

Like most inventions Power Perch was created out of necessity. I received a rechargeable beard trimmer (yes, the one in the pictures) from my mother-in-law for Christmas. After getting it set up on my bathroom counter I realized there wasn’t a good place to keep it charged that didn’t take up my already-in-demand counter space. I searched for an easy space-saving solution that didn’t require me to add any holes in my bathroom walls and I didn’t find anything. So I created my own product (an outlet shelf) that uses the outlet to mount to the wall and keeps my beard trimmer off my counter and close to the outlet for charging. After using my 3D printer to make my newly designed “charging shelf” for the bathroom, I discovered my outlet shelf could be used around the home as a charging station to keep all of our rechargeable electronics off of the floor and counter tops. The Power Perch was born.

A little about the creator of Power Perch

This is me, Gerald Beranek, and I am the creator and inventor of the Power Perch.  I am also a husband, father, entrepreneur, founder/owner of a manufacturing startup and a serial inventor of many other products.  As a mechanical & manufacturing engineer from the University of Iowa my passion is in developing and manufacturing simple innovative products to solve those little annoyances that you encounter everyday in life. With 9+ years of product development and manufacturing experience and 4 products that were ready for the market I decided it was time to focus my time and energy on building a business around what I love to do.  In March 2014 my son, Levi, was born and I resigned my full time position to start BeraTek Industries.  Needless to say, 2014 was a very exciting year for my family and I! With BeraTek I can now share all of my products with you so you can enjoy the simplicity of my products in your life.
