Kensington announces USB charger, car mounts for iPod & iPhone


Kensington has introduced its new 4-Port USB Charger for Mobile Devices, as well as two new car mounts for the iPod and iPhone. The 4-Port USB Charger for Mobile Devices is a black one-piece wall charger offering four USB ports on the bottom for charging multiple devices, including the iPod and iPhone, simultaneously. It sells for $30. The Dash Mount for iPhone and iPod features a jointed arm for positioning, adjustable side clamps to securely hold the iPhone or iPod, even when in a case, adjustable legs for added stability, and a rotating head to allow for vertical or horizontal device orientation. It also sells for $30. Finally, Kensington’s Power Port Mount for iPhone and iPod features a mount that anchors in a vehicle’s power port and provides a pass-through for connecting other accessories, such as a car charger. Other features include adjustable side clamps, a swiveling head, and a flexible arm. It too will sell for $30. All three new products will be available at the end of this month.

Wouldn’t you think that since the device anchors itself in the power port/lighter socket that they could include a small cable to attach to the iPod directly to charge the unit in the cradle?

It just seems too obvious as the biggest piece lacking from this device.  If it had the connector to charge at the same time without having to buy and string another loose cable, I’d buy these for all of my vehicles and for everyone I know that travels with their iPod in the car!
