Standard and Mini Version Make On-the-Go Powering and Recharging Fast, Light and Easy
Kensington Computer Products Group, a worldwide leader in delivering smart made simple™ computing accessories to the mobile consumer, today announced the release of its Battery Pack and Charger for iPhone and iPod that also comes in an ultra small and lightweight portable version - the Mini Battery Pack and Charger for iPhone and iPod. These new offerings are especially convenient because they simultaneously power and charge an iPhone or iPod, and they are rechargeable, as well. Kensington's smart made simple design approach gives consumers a combination of two portable sizes to best accommodate their mobile lifestyles; the standard model is the perfect traveling companion for heavy duty power needs while the "mini" is designed for users to easily carry with them on a daily basis. This means that finally - even the most avid consumers can make the most of their devices, knowing that they always have a ready supply of power at hand to keep the conversations going and the music playing.
Today's mobile professionals want to take non-stop advantage of the rich variety of iPhone and iPod capabilities without having to worry about running out of battery life. Now they can always have a fresh charge at hand in a size that tucks into airplane carry-on's or a slim "mini" that slides into a jacket pocket or the smallest women's evening bag; or can even be left connected to your iPhone or iPod. Recharging is straightforward and easily implemented with a simple USB dock connector.
"The Battery Pack and Charger and the Mini Battery Pack and Charger are lifelines to extend talk, tunes and videos," states Kevin Ngo, Global Product Manager at Kensington. "Apple has done a terrific job in consistently innovating the iPod and iPhone with exciting features - and we're committed to providing consumers with the battery power to take maximum advantage of them. Now consumers can choose the power size they want to carry along and they can recharge even as they talk, watch and listen.
