NASHVILLE, TN – April 30, 2003. Griffin Technology Inc, innovator of
exciting hardware and software products for the Mac and PC market, today

a stand-alone charger module and a separate high quality FireWire cable for
use with the original iPods. The only iPod auto charger compatible with all

“We originally designed the PowerPod with a separate cable and module to
give our customers the flexibility to use any FireWire cable they wanted.
Turns out our iPod Auto Charger is even more flexible than we thought.” said
Paul Griffin, CEO Griffin Technology. “The new Dock Connector to FireWire
Cable that comes with every new iPod fits directly into our PowerPod Auto
Charger Module right now. This means current PowerPod owners upgrading their
iPods don’t have to also buy a new auto charger – and new iPod owners have a
choice that’ll save them $20 bucks and is shipping now”.

adapter and allows users to take their iPod on the road and listen to great
music while keeping their iPod fully charged. It includes a status LED that
indicates power and is fused and filtered to protect the iPod in case of
electrical surges. It comes with an attractive separate charger module that
works with any FireWire cable or the new Dock Connector to FireWire Cable
included with all new iPods. A separate high-quality 4-foot FireWire cable
is included in the package as well.
