Scosche announces Lightning Wall and Car chargers
Scosche Industries is no stranger to those who are firmly entrenched in the world of accessories for smartphones, tablets, notebooks and computers. In fact, here they are with their latest announcement that are sure to please the new iPhone 5 owners out there – especially since Scosche is the first accessory manufacturer to have unveiled both 5 and 12 watt Lightning wall and car chargers. In order to keep up with the times and be forward looking, Scosche has decisively done away with 10W chargers from its range since these are unable to charge the new iPad 4th generation at the fastest charging speed possible. iPad mini owners, on the other hand, are able to make full use of the new 12W chargers from Scosche, where these are more than capable of powering the smaller tablet in a matter of 3 hours, which is far faster than the 4.75 hours required via the 5W charger that is included with each iPad mini purchase.
Kas Alves, Executive Vice President of Scosche Industries, said, “Smartphones and tablets are an integral part of our daily lives, but keeping them all charged can create several challenges. We designed our Lightning chargers with flexibility in mind. The new line provides power solutions for home and on the go and addresses the varying wattage requirements of our favorite devices, the need to charge multiple devices simultaneously and is capable of powering multiple devices with different connections with the same charger.”
The new strikeDRIVE for the car and strikeBASE for the home boasts of a captive (connected) Lightning cable, where it will be available in both 5 and 12 watt models. There is a similar strikeDRIVE 12w + 12w that makes use of a captive cable with both a microUSB and Lightning tips while boasting a second, tablet-friendly, 12w port that enables it to charge a couple of USB powered mobile devices simultaneously. All of Scosche’s Pro Lightning chargers will come with dual USB ports, accompanied by a 3 ft. charge and sync cable with both Lightning and microUSB connections. Talk about convenient charging on the go!
