The latest generation of XtremeMac's InCharge series of home and car chargers has arrived, and minimalist design is the name of the game. InCharge Auto ($20) is an ultra-simple black and gray car charger with a coiled cord, a low-profile Dock Connector, and a matte black charging bulb -- no frills, save for a 1 Amp charger that provides a faster recharge for iPhones, nice for the asking price. The Home ($30) and Home Plus ($40) versions of InCharge differ based on pack-ins: both are dual USB wall chargers with detachable power blades, but whereas Home comes with only U.S./Canada/Japan-ready blades, Home Plus includes additional travel-friendly blades suited to international use, as well. Each version comes with one USB-to-Dock Connector cable, leaving you to supply the second USB cable yourself; they output 1 Amp per port for fast charging.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
