Sonnet Technologies Announces USB Power Adapters for iPod

Small Adapters Charge iPod On-the-Go or at Home, are Available in White or
Black and Include Matching Dock Connector Cable

IRVINE, CA– December 21, 2005–Sonnet Technologies, a worldwide leader in
upgrades for Apple Macintosh computers and iPod digital music players,
announces a new line of compact USB power adapters for 4th and 5th
generation iPod models, iPod mini, iPod shuffle, and iPod nano. Sonnet’s
iPod USB Power Adapter is small, curvy, and versatile–it’s about 2/3 the
size of its competition–the blades fold away when not in use for easy
travel storage, and its universal power compatibility enables worldwide
use. Its non-polarized blades allow the adapter to be plugged in with the
USB outlet face up or down, perfect for use in tight spots. With an MSRP of
only USD $19.95, it’s a great value too–the included USB-to-dock connector
cable is a $19 value alone!

Sonnet’s iPod USB Power Adapter is a simply fast way to charge an iPod
without starting up a computer. Just plug in the adapter, and then connect
the included cable between it and the iPod (iPod shuffle connects without
the cable). “With each succeeding generation, the number of accessories
bundled with iPod has been reduced, and the power adapter brick is no
longer included,” states Robert Farnsworth, Sonnet CEO. “Sonnet’s USB power
adapters offer iPod users an attractive and inexpensive choice for charging
the device anywhere there’s a power outlet.” Farnsworth noted that the
included cable may also be used with a computer, providing the user even
more flexibility. At home or away, Sonnet USB power adapters let you love
your iPod even longer!
