Scosche (http://scosche.com) has announced two new additions to its 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 imultaneously from one wall outlet or car power port.
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, says Kas Alves, executive vice president of Scosche Industries.
The reVIVE II chargers will retail for US$24.99 (car) and $29.99 (home) and are available now for pre-order. They’ll ship in late spring.
The two chargers join the 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 protection for the iPad. The case’s patent pending locking kickstand enables both vertical and horizontal viewing and has a low angle setting for the optimal typing position. Also, Scosche’s IDR655m, IDR355m, IDR355md and HP155m earphones with tapLINE II controls are also all iPad compatible.
