Portable Power Solutions Ltd (PPS) is the brainchild of Mark Roberts.  Using his extensive experience in the data capture (mobile and static) and the various industries using data capture, PPS was born in 2003 as an independent value-added distributor for a range of hi-tech equipment manufacturers.

We import and hold stock at our Gloucestershire facility, and despatch items directly to customers usually on the same day as the order is received (for UK orders confirmed prior to 11:00).  We even same day courier ‘emergency’ orders to customers when the situation arises. orders going outside of UK are despatched using UPS.


How We Work

At PPS, the key words are ‘value-added’.  We take them seriously and work hard to equip ourselves to serve our customers better wherever we can.  Which translates into superior staff training/knowledge as well as specific technology investments to support, configure and test devices as needed.

We serve the UK and European markets, offering high-quality advice and guidance as well as swift delivery and keen pricing.  Much of our repeat business from customers is down to the quality of service that they receive both before and after sales.  This is particularly important as our customer’s range from individuals using technology at home right through to the largest corporates - with widely differing needs for configuration assistance and usage support.

Which means that unlike many technology distributors we’re not just a website-n-warehouse combination.  We employ qualified staff that you can discuss your specific needs with you before you purchase … on the phone!  That’s why we say that we really are ‘value-added’.


Who We Represent

We carefully select a small range of equipment manufacturers to distribute for.  This way we can be sure to have knowledgeable staff to help our customers when they need it and at the level of detail that they need.

Our principal partners include:

Cradle of Sweden - Rugged range of Vehicle Cradles, Desk cradles and gang chargers.

Portsmith Range of ethernet cradles and adapters for the hand held computer market.

We are always looking for new equipment suppliers to complement our current portfolio, so if you represent such a company please give us a call.


What our Vehicle Cradles Provide

These allow a handheld device to be safely mounted into a vehicle, which is a legal requirement in many countries.

The range mainly covers Honeywell, Samsung and Zebra although we are continually expanding the list


What our Desk Cradles and Adapters Provide

The desk cradles provide a cost effective means of charging hand held computers 

The ethernet Cradles are for the Zebra/Motorola/Symbol range of hand held terminals. They provide a method of communicating via ethernet to a server without the need for a PC or WiFi infrastructure.

The adapters provide a method of connecting USB cradles or devices to an ethernet network.
