Unlike its smaller sibling the iPhone the iPad gets awesome battery life. Still, you likely want to have an extra wall charger around and you definitely want a charger in the car. Problem is, the iPad takes a different wall and car charger than the iPhone and touch. Apple will be offering a wall charger accessory but it has not yet shipped. Fortunately Scosche has just announced both a wall and a car charger. The revive II will, in fact, do double duty.
Both chargers will charge both iPad and an additional USB powered device at once. The 2.1 Amp USB port is for charging iPad while the 1 Amp USB port can be used for charging additional devices. You provide your own cables.
The full release follows…
The reVIVE II – Dual USB Home Charger for iPad has an MSRP of $29.99 and.
The reVIVE II – Dual USB Car Charger for iPad has an MSRP of $24.99 and.
Scosche Announces revive II — Dual USB Chargers Feature iPad-optimized USB power port
Chargers feature dual USB ports to power iPad and another USB powered device at home or in the car
Innovative chargers join iPad accessory line that already includes kickBACK case and stand and five earphone models
Oxnard, CA, – April 07, 2010 – Scosche Industries, an award-winning innovator of iPod, iPhone and now iPad accessories, is proud to announce two new additions to its quickly expanding iPad accessory line – reVIVE II Dual USB Chargers for home and car. Each of the two reVIVE II chargers features a 2.1 Amp (iPad) and 1 Amp (iPhone or any other USB powered devices) port so iPad users can power their new iPad and another handheld device simultaneously from one wall outlet or car power port. According to Pew Researche’s Internet and the American Life the average consumer owns between 3 and 4 gadgets, which makes the additional USB port on both reVIVE II models a welcome addition for most consumers.
“The new chargers and kickBACK P1 case are just the tip of the iceberg for our iPad accessory line,” said Kas Alves, executive vice president of Scosche Industries. “We will be announcing several industry first products via our Twitter and Facebook pages in the coming weeks, so become a follower and fan today so you don’t miss anything.”
Should users confuse the two USB ports the iPad will charge slower in the 1A port and other devices will simply charge at the same rate in the 2.1A port – no devices would be damaged by mistakenly plugging the wrong device into the wrong port and the ports are clearly labeled to help avoid any confusion.
The reVIVE II chargers will retail for $24.99 (car) and $29.99 (home) and are available now for preorder on scosche.com and in shipping late spring.
The two chargers join the much-anticipated kickBACK P1 for iPad, which will be available for preorder on Scosche.com for $44.99 and shipping early summer. The shatterproof polycarbonate and rubber hybrid case provides superior protection for Apple’s new iPad tablet. The case’s patent pending locking kickstand enables both vertical and horizontal viewing and has a low angle setting for the optimal typing position.
Scosche’s IDR655m, IDR355m, IDR355md and HP155m earphones with tapLINE II controls are also all iPad compatible and available now at www.scosche.com.
