LAS VEGAS — iLuv Creative Technology expanded its CE accessories lines with new charging products and sync cables, and it introduced what the company is calling the first audio dock designed for Amazon’s Kindle line.

The iMM375 features the robotic arms of the company’s MyBot OmniFit technology. This allows the dock to adjust for the width of the Kindle Fire or Kindle Touch, or it can be used with any device that uses a 3.5mm audio port.

The iMM375 also charges the Kindle while it’s plugged in. Suggested retail is $69.99.

Speaking of charging, iLuv introduced several new charging and syncing cables as part of its MyLink line.

The retractable CuteSync iCB12 is billed as an ultraportable sync and charge cable that can fit on a keychain. It has an Apple connector and a MicroUSB connector, as well as a flipout USB connector. iLuv said it was designed to expose only one connector at a time, thus avoiding any potential syncing errors incurred by connecting two devices at once.

The Mini CuteSync iCB9 is similar to the CuteSync, but it’s only meant for use with Apple devices.

The DualJack iCB17 is a combination sync and charge cable that has an Apple connector and a MicroUSB connector. The iCB27 version can be used with Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S smartphones.

Pricing for the cables start at $19.99.

The company also launched its MyPower line of power and charging solutions meant for the “world-traveling consumer.” Pricing for these cables start at $19.99.

The DreamTraveler iAD301 is a travel-size combination power strip with surge protection, USB charger for Apple devices, and a slide-out charging dock. It can power up to six devices at once with its three grounded outlets, two USB ports and one USB charging dock, iLuv said.

The RockWall iAD710 is a dual-port USB wall charger that can simultaneously quickcharge an iPad and an iPhone/ iPod. It features a swiveling base that allows it to be connected to an outlet strip on the floor, an outlet on the wall or folded closed. It can also accommodate various international plug adapters.

The DualPin iAD610 dualport USB charger is meant for use in cars. It features a total of 15.5 watts and can quick-charge an iPad and iPhone simultaneously. It also has a head that can swivel at a 30-degree angle.

The MobiSeal car charger comes in two versions. The iAD530 is meant for use with MicroUSB devices, and the iAD540 version works exclusively with Galaxy tablets and smartphones.

All of iLuv’s new products will be available in May.
