Scosche flipCHARGE burst and flipCHARGE rogue announced
Scosche has just announced a couple of devices that will help solve the “short of power” issue that plagues many first world societies these days, considering the sheer number of gadgets that they tote around. The Scosche flipCHARGE burst and flipCHARGE rogue will come with a flush folding USB cable that paves the way for easy synchronization (not to mention not having any risk of losing a cable connector cap or anything of that sort), while a blue LED will let you know just how much juice it has left inside, not to mention a convenient carabiner clip that lets you hook it up to just about anything and anywhere.
Both of them will further expand Scosche’s back-up battery and charger range, and they will also work in tandem with Scosche’s free reVIVE App for advanced power management. Kas Alves, Executive Vice President of Scosche Industries, says, “Not being able to make calls, send texts, watch videos, surf the web, access email or listen to music because of a dead battery can be extremely frustrating. The flipCHARGE line addresses that problem in a smart, convenient form factor that is easy to always have with you.”
Scosche’s spanking new flipCHARGE rogue will come with a powerful 1800mAh lithium polymer battery (nowhere near what the new Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX offers at 3,300mAh, but it will do for the moment) that can fully juice up a dead iPhone or iPod, just like how a Phoenix Down revives your fallen Final Fantasy character. As for the smaller flipCHARGE burst, it will live up to its name by offering an emergency 30% power burst to an iPhone, and has enough juice stashed inside to power up a dead iPod up to 70% capacity during emergencies.
Regardless of which model you purchase, the flipCHARGE devices can be juiced up by plugging them into any computer, wall or car charger. The Scosche flipCHARGE burst and flipCHARGE rouge will retail for $44.99 and $59.99, respectively, if you are interested.
