Kensington Computer Products Group (http://www.kensington.com) has announced a variety of new products, including the AbsolutePower, BungeeAir and SecureBack.
The US$119.99 AbsolutePower is a laptop, phone and tablet charger. It offers 100W of power and is compatible with smartphones like the iPhone, BlackBerry Torch, Sony Experia, and more, as well as the iPad and iPad 2, BlackBerry Playbook and Samsung Galaxy tablets. AbsolutePower charges up to three devices at the same time. Sitting on a desk, AbsolutePower only takes up 12% more space than an iPhone that it charges.
The BungeeAir — with pricing starting at US$79.99 — is a wireless security tether and case for the iPhone. It combines software and hardware to physically and digitally secure an Apple smaratphone. BungeeAir is a wireless tether comprised of a downloadable software application and a small remote fob, which can be attached to a key chain or carried in a pocket. The two components maintain an active wireless connection. Stretching the connection to its limit triggers an audible alert from the fob, and instantly activates password protection to secure the iPhone and prevent access to data or content. The BungeeAir fob, powered by two coin size batteries, has a battery life of up to six months.
The SecureBack — with pricing starting at $49.99 — is a security case for the iPad 2. It features a three-piece design with a patent-pending rail system that secures the iPad to prevent theft. The case includes the ClickSafe Security Anchor that enables iPad users to lock their tablet, in just one click. The integrated security bar on each case can tilt the iPad for an on-screen typing angle.
Kensington has introduced two versions of the SecureBack case. The first features one-click security in a sleek form factor designed for handheld use. A second case adds a two-way extendable stand with 20-degree typing angle and 60-degree landscape viewing angle. Both versions are available bundled with a ClickSafe lock and cable.
