    Based on the earlier PowerDock series of multi-device chargers, PowerDock 5 ($100) is the first to have users self-supply their own cables for charging. The plastic tray can hold any five Apple devices you want to charge at once -- including five iPads -- and includes five side-mounted USB ports for charging devices.

    The product of a new licensing deal between Griffin and Nickelodeon, these cases feature licensed characters such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and SpongeBob SquarePants — an 8-bit SpongeBob design is particularly interesting. The iPhone cases are $30, iPad folio cases $50.

    Griffin is expanding the Survivor case into an entire family of options, including the Survivor Clear ($30) -- like the earlier Reveal -- plus the hardshell-inside-silicone Survivor Slim ($40 for iPhone, $30 for iPod touch), as well as the Survivor + Catalyst Waterproof Case ($80, not shown).
