We’re focusing on our own iProducts Marketplace section during the first day of CES 2015. So far, we’ve seen new styluses from Adonit, new battery solutions from Mophie, MyCharge, and Simplism, some new Speck cases, a new dock from CableJive, and the newest boomBottle speaker from Scosche. We’ll have much more to come during the day and the rest of the week.
Adonit showed off its two new styluses, Jot Pro ($30) and Jot Mini ($20). Both aluminum and steel styluses use no power — it’s pick up and write. Both are available in black and silver starting today.
CableJive’s HeroDock ($50) accommodates a Lightning cable, and adjusts to fit all cases. The company expects the aluminum-based dock to hit the market in February.
Mophie introduced its Juice Pack Air ($100) and Juice Pack Plus ($120) for iPhone 6, and Juice Pack ($100) for iPhone 6 Plus. Juice Pack Air is a 2750 mAh battery case, while Juice Pack Plus offers 3300 mAh, giving a 120 percent charge to an iPhone 6. Meanwhile, the thin Juice Pack for iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 2600 mAh battery to get a 60 percent charge on the device. All of the battery cases should be released in February. A charging cradle will be sold separately.
MyCharge introduced updated editions of its Hub batteries ranging from 3000 mAh to 12000 mAh — HubMini, HubPlus, HubMax, and HubUltra ($70-$160). The battery packs include built-in Lightning and micro-USB cables.
Scosche showed off its newest boomBottle Bluetooth speaker, the boomBottle Plus ($180). A 7W speaker with two 50mm drivers, it contains a 6000 mAh battery for 2.1A charging. The waterproof speaker is rated IP67, it supports dual pairing with a second unit, and it should be hitting the market in the second quarter.
Scosche also unveiled new additions to its MagicMount line, including the XL Surface ($25), Dash/Window ($35), Mini Mat ($30), a new dual-charging Power ($40), and a headrest MagicMount ($40), as well.
Simplism introduced a new line of products called Nuans — we saw a number of Lightning cables and felt-covered batteries with built-in Lightning cables, such as the 3000 mAh Tagbar ($50) and the 6000 mAh Tagplate ($60).
Simplism also introduced two new cleverly designed lamp Lightning docks, Tile and Cone — the latter with a built-in speaker. A hidden Lightning connector rotates outward for charging. Pricing is still unknown.
Speck revealed its MightyShell ($60) for the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve reviewed the iPhone 6 version — it’s a slightly bulkier CandyShell with added protection. It should be out in the first quarter of this year.
Speck also showed us the DuraFolio ($60) case for iPad Air 2. Designed specifically for Apple’s newest iPad Air, the case will be released this month.
