Best known in its earlier days for cases and protective solutions, Moshi has become a reliably good electronic accessory developer in recent years, with a particularly sharp eye for Mac-ready accessories. This year, the company is showing new iOS-ready battery packs, aluminum headphones, Lightning cables, and other neat accessories for computers and the Apple TV.

  • Moshi

    The Moshi booth features a selection of cases, speakers and earbuds, a new card reader and several keyboard and iPad case options.

  • Moshi

    Moshi's aluminum Lightning cables ($20) will offer a cosmetically nicer alternative to Apple's $19 Lightning to USB Cable, with metal on both of the connector housings.

  • Moshi

    Ion Bank (~$100) is a battery pack ready for iPad use, complete with twin USB ports -- one with full-sized iPad recharging speed, the other ready for iPhones and iPods. The battery has a built-in USB cable for recharging, handsome aluminum top and bottom pieces, and a carrying case.

    Cardette 3 ($50) is a compact, Mac-matching USB 3.0 media card reader, capable of handling CompactFlash, SD Card, Memory Stick, and microSD cards at faster read/write speeds than prior versions.

  • Moshi

    Moshi's Thunderbolt Cable ($49) uses second-generation chips to improve data transfer reliability and increase compatibility with third-party Thunderbolt accessories, remedying some issues users experienced with Apple's original cables.

  • Moshi

    The 5M HDMI Cable (TBD) has chips on both of its HDMI connector sides to preserve AV signal integrity over a long 15-foot distance -- unusually long for an HDMI cable, if you need to mount an Apple TV at a considerable distance from an HDTV.

  • Moshi

    Mythro ($30) is a pair of inexpensive aluminum-bodied in-ear headphones; the silver-colored version here actually has a slight pink tint, a single-button remote and mic, and double-sided Velcro cord manager.

  • Moshi

    Moshi's new Versacase for iPad mini utilizes an origami lid design, a plastic back, and magnetic closure.
