Light and Versatile New Power Accessories Mean No More iPhone or iPod® Downtime
Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple? computing accessories for the mobile consumer, today announced that it has received Apple's "Works with iPhone" certification for its line of Battery Packs and Chargers for the iPhone 3G. The new iPhone 3G has received overwhelmingly positive response except for how quickly it drains battery power. Kensington has addressed this problem by offering a full line of battery packs and chargers that users can easily carry with them at all times. Now they can use all the exciting new iPhone 3G features as much as they like without ever again having to worry about running out of battery power.
Kensington's "Works with iPhone" Apple-certified products make it the "one stop shop" for iPhone 3G power accessories that also work with the original iPhone and iPod music players. Its new line includes standard and mini battery packs - the mini is so small that people can keep it plugged into their iPhone at all times without it getting in the way. The new Car Charger lets people power up from their car's power outlet while they drive. The Car Charger Deluxe - #1 consumer-rated and top seller on Apple.com1 - comes with a flexible arm and cradle for securely holding the iPhone within reach and keeping it fully charged, while driving. In September, Kensington will also add an International Travel Charger, a Power and Sync Cable and a Dual Charging Dock to its product line.
"If you have a new iPhone 3G, then you are aware that it consumes a lot of power," said Kevin Ngo, Global Product Manager at Kensington. "In order to get the most enjoyment out of your new iPhone, Kensington has created a product for every situation - giving us one of the largest selections of iPhone power accessories on the market - so that you can depend on full power no matter where you go and what you do. We're especially proud of our "Works with iPhone" Apple certified products because Apple has very high standards for awarding this certification just as we have very high standards for our smart made simple products."
