Scosche strikes market with new Lightning chargers
Thursday, February 14, 2013 @ 7:57pm

Accessory manufacturer Scosche Industries has announced the availability of new Lightning chargers and the first official retractable Lightning cable. The strikeBASE AC adapter in 5W and 12W versions is now on sale, along with the strikeDRIVE car charger, also in 5W and 12W models. A strikeLINE PRO retractable Lightning cable has also been released.



The new strikeBASE wall charger features a three-foot long cable and flush-folding wall prongs. A low-profile design leaves other outlets open for use. The 5W model will charge the iPhone 5, fifth-gen iPod touch, and seventh-gen iPod nano at maximum speed.  The similarly-designed 12W model is the first 12W wall charger on the market besides the Apple OEM version, and packs enough power to charge the fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini in addition to the lower-powered devices. Scosche’s strikeDRIVE is the first 12W car charger for Lightning devices and features a three-foot coiled cable that provides the freedom to use a device as it charges. The retractable strikeLINE PRO cable extends up to three feet. The strikeBASE charger sells for $30 in the case of the 5W model, and $35 for the 12W version. A strikeDrive car charger can be purchased at $25 for 5W and $30 for 12W. The strikeLINE retractable cable is set at $25. All of the cables are currently at the Scosche website, and will be at Apple retail stores and other outlets later this spring.
