Belkin will launch two new accessories designed for Apple’s Lightning connector, a hardwired car charger and Charge + Sync dock. They’re the first of several new Lightning accessories from Belkin that will launch this year, says Martin Avila, general manager of Belkin’s core division.
The Belkin Car Charger for Lightning ($29.99) is an updated version of Belkin’s slim-profile car charger. The 10 watt, 2.1 amp device is available in black.
The $29.99 Belkin Charge + Sync Dock is “case-compatible” and boasts a cable channel for easy cable feeding and a removable magnetic base, says Avila. It also has an EarPods audio-out port for headphones or speakers.
Lightning accessories from Belkin are available for pre-order now on www.Belkin.com ; they’ll be available starting in mid-November.
