Scosche just announced 5 and 12 watt Lightning wall and car chargers for charging iPhone 5 or the new iPads which each have the new Lightning charging port instead of the 30-pin dock connector. Scosche smartly eliminated 10W chargers from its lineup as they do not charge the new four-generation iPad at the fastest charging speed possible. iPad mini users can also take advantage of the new 12W chargers from Scosche, which will power the smaller tablet in just 3 hours , as compared to 4.75 hours with the 5W charger included with the device.
The new strikeDRIVE (car) and strikeBASE (home) feature a captive (connected) Lightning cable and are available in both 5 and 12 watt models. The similar strikeDRIVE 12w + 12w utilizes a captive cable with both a Mirco USB and Lightning tips and features a second, tablet friendly, 12w port for simultaneously charging two USB powered mobile devices.
Scosche’s Pro Lightning chargers all feature dual USB ports and ship with a 3 ft. charge and sync cable with both Lightning and Micro USB connections. The strikeDRIVE pro 12w + 12w car charger features a low profile, award winning design that fits flush with most car power sockets.
The strikeBASE pro 5w + 5w and strikeBASE pro 12w + 12w wall chargers ship with the same detachable USB cable. The new wall chargers both feature two USB ports for simultaneously charging two mobile devices and a unique flat top design that fits in either the top or bottom of a wall outlet.
Customers who already own a USB charging solution but would like to travel with just one cable for all their mobile devices can take advantage of the new strikeLINE pro. The retractable charge and sync cable features the same dual tip design with both Lightning and Micro USB connections.
