Scosche just announced six new iPhone 5 compatible accessories. They’re all geared towards charging your iPad Mini, iPad 4, or iPhone 5. Or perhaps you own all three, in which case all of them, or just one of them will juice up your iOS device.
There are six total new products, but boil it down to brass tact and we’re really only looking at three. That said, they’re all capable of delivering up to 12 watts of power, enough juice to charge up the iPad 4 and iPad Mini in the shortest amount of time.
For starters, there are the strikeDRIVE car chargers. The strikeDRIVE 12w ($29.99) is your typical cigarette lighter compatible charger with a Lightning plug on the end. The strikeDRIVE 12w+12w ($39.99) and strikeDRIVE 12w Pro 12W+12W ($49.99) are effectively the same, though the latter includes a detachable cord and two open USB ports as opposed to one open USB port and a built-in cord. Both come with Scosche’s innovative quick flip microUSB to Lighting connector, which seamlessly allows you to charge microUSB products without searching for an adapter.
For home use there are two wall chargers: the strikeBASE 12W ($34.99) and the strikeBASE Pro 12w+12w ($49.99). The regular strikeBASE is available in 5W and 12W flavors, and is your typical wall charger – the Lightning cord is not removable. The Pro version is a dual USB port wall charger and includes Scosche’s stand alone quick flip microUSB to Lighting cable.
Last on the list is the strikeLINE Pro, which features the same microUSB to Lighting plug, and a retractable cord that extends up to 3-feet.
No word on when they’ll ship, but safe to assume in a few weeks to meet holiday demands.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
