CES 2013is about to kick off and we are being inundated with new accessories. One of those that really stand out is the Griffin PowerDock 5 which is a counter top charge that can charge up to five devices at the same time from one power outlet. If you live in a home like me, this particular accessory could come in really handy; we currently have three iPads and three iPhones.
Not only can this clever little accessory charge five devices at once but it also has the built in intelligence to know what power each device needs to charge at its optimal rate. The Griffin ChargeSensor senses the requirements of the device that is plugged in and provides the correct charging profile for that particular device.
The PowerDock 5 should be available in Spring this year and will cost $99.99. Griffin will release it alongside two other new products, the PowerBlock Universal with ChargeSensor and the PowerJolt Universal with ChargeSensor. The PowerBlock Universal with ChargeSensor converts any power input between 100 and 240 volts into a safe 10 watt charger for your devices. The PowerJolt Universal is a car charger that again uses the ChargeSensor technology to deliver optimal charging when you are on the move. Both of these devices will be available in the Spring too and will cost $29.99 and $24.99 respectively.
We are on the ground at CES 2013 so we will try and get a closer look and some hands on time with all of the new accessories being announced for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
