iGo said it would debut a wall charger in October, termed the iGo Charge Anywhere.
Priced at a suggested $49.99, the iGo Charge Anywhere can operate as a wall charger to charge almost any device while simultaneously charging its integrated battery for device charging away from a wall outlet.
Features include two USB outputs, a 6-foot USB charging cable, foldable wall blades and power tips that reportedly work with “almost all” portable CE devices.
More than 95 percent of all mobile electronic devices are covered with one charger, according to the company. Just some of the compatible devices include cellphones from Apple, BlackBerry, Google, LG, Palm, Motorola and Hewlett-Packard; Bluetooth headsets from BlueAnt, Aliph, Jabra, Motorola and Nokia; MP3 players from Microsoft, Apple, SanDisk and Sony; digital cameras from Canon, HP, Kodak and Nikon; and GPS devices from Garmin, Magellan, Navigon and TomTom, among many others.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
