SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD 2009 – JANUARY 7, 2009 – Griffin Technology Inc.,
creator of all things iPod and iPhone, today announced the products it will
be debuting at Macworld Expo 2009. Griffin is bringing a fresh mix of new
accessories such as earbuds, power solutions and audio cables to showcase
at booth #1902 in the South Hall.
“Retailers in the consumer electronics arena know us as a leading and
inventive company who is constantly enhancing its product line,” said Paul
Griffin, founder of Griffin Technology. “We’re confident that our newest
lineup – as well as updates to our core products – will satisfy and excite
both retailers and consumers alike.”
New products for 2009 include:
As the world’s best-selling AC charger and adapter for USB-rechargeable
devices, PowerBlock is the perfect way to power-up an iPhone or iPod.
Griffin’s new PowerBlock Reserve charges iPod and iPhone while
simultaneously charging its own reserve battery pack. The removable Reserve
battery pack is held in its charging bay magnetically, so there’s nothing
to unplug. It’s easy to grab and take with you (and it’s compact enough to
fit in your jeans pocket). Its lithium-ion battery pack recharges an iPhone
or iPod on the go, and supplies additional hours of music, video, web
access, and talk time.
PowerJolt Reserve extends surf time, talk time and tune time with a
detachable, rechargeable battery for iPod and iPhone. PowerJolt Reserve
plugs into a car’s cigarette lighter or 12 V DC power outlet and quickly
charges both the device and the Reserve battery pack. Reserve’s battery
charges your iPhone or iPod through its Dock Connector, adding hours of
additional use between charges. PowerJolt Reserve’s battery pack is
interchangeable with the PowerBlock Reserve AC charger (available
Griffin’s TuneBuds Fit are in-ear headphones that deliver superb sound in
an anatomically correct curved design, shaped to the ear canal, making them
the most comfortable way to enjoy music all day long. The low-resonance
aluminum shells and matching, tuned 10 mm drivers produce more accurate
sound fidelity than plastic housings. The package comes with 3 sets of soft
ear cushions to pamper your ears and isolate outside noise.
The convenience of a desktop USB hub, but entirely portable. This
slim-as-can-be USB hub provides an extra hi-speed USB 2.0 port to MacBook
Air (or any other laptop), and makes its recessed USB port accessible to
more devices. Even travelers can enjoy the luxury of plugging in an
available keyboard, mouse or other peripheral into one port while charging
and syncing their iPod or iPhone in the other.
Griffin’s FireWire to USB Charge Converter ensures that older charging
solutions continue to work with iPhone 3G and new (2008) iPod models that
charge using USB circuitry. Simple to use and compact, the Charge Converter
fits between the Dock Connector and the charging device. Now when you trade
up your iPod, you don’t have to trade up all your chargers.
Noise-Reducing Audio Cable
We’ve all experienced The Hum. Griffin’s Noise-reducing Audio Cable
eliminates interference caused by some cars’ electrical systems. The 6-foot
long cable features an inline dual-element noise filter to reduce hum and
ensure the best sound possible. The 1/8″ stereo-mini jack conveniently
connects an MP3 player’s headphone jack to the stereo’s Aux-in port for
clean sound, and no Hum.
