Last week Belkin became the first third-party accessory maker to provide official Lightning connector accessories for the latest Apple products. Now, Scosche has also unveiled new Lightning charging accessories for both home and car use.
Scosche has announced new Lightning connector wall chargers and car chargers for the iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th generation, iPod Nano 7th generation and the iPad Mini. Some of these accessories were leaked in August, before the iPhone 5 and the Lightning connector were released. The new charging accessories from Scosche include both 5w and 12w Lightning adapters to provide faster charge times.
There are 5 different Lightning accessories called strikeDRIVE, strikeDRIVE Pro, strikeBASE, strikeBASE Pro and strikeLINE Pro. The strikeDRIVE is a car charger and comes in 5w, 12w and 12w+12w (Lightning+USB) flavors, costing $24.99, $29.99 and $34.99 respectively. The strikeDRIVE Pro comes with two 12w USB ports and a removable USB cable with micro-USB and Lightning tips; it costs $49.99.
StrikeBASE, a wall charger, comes in 5w and 12w costing $29.99 and $34.99 respectively. The strikeBASE Pro comes with 5w+5w or 12w+12w USB ports, a removable USB cable with micro-USB and Lightning tips; it costs $39.99 and $49.99 respectively.
