Griffin Technology has introduced its new A-Frame tabletop stand, and PowerBlock and PowerJolt chargers for the Apple iPad. The A-Frame is a bushed aluminum stand for tabletop and desk use, offering a soft silicone cradle to protect against scratches, strategically-placed grooves in the cradle to allow for speaker functionality, a foldable design for easy travel, and space to allow for full access to the dock connector for charging and syncing in either vertical or horizontal position. It sells for $50. The PowerBlock and PowerJolt are re-engineered versions of Griffin’s home and car chargers, respectively, offering 2.1 amp capacity for fast iPad charging, green LED charging indicators, included, detachable USB to 30-pin dock cables, and compatibility with the iPhone, iPod, and other USB devices. They sell for $30 and $25, respectively; all of Griffin’s new iPad accessories are available now from the Apple Store.

“All of Griffin’s new iPad accessories are available now from the Apple Store.”

Not the A-Frame.  Not yet, anyway.  Too bad.  Looks perfect for my needs and worth waiting for.

What advantage does the PowerBlock offer over the charger provided by Apple?

Finally got it today. It was on backorder for what seemed like forever from Mac Mall, so I finally gave up and got it from Apple’s online store.

I’m very pleased with it overall, but as Jeremy noted in his review—where we can no longer post comments pursuant to iLounge’s policy—the A-Frame could do with a bit more polishing as the edges are so sharp you could practically shave with it.

I’d give it an overall B+ for that reason.
