New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
The new iConcepts 3 in 1 car kit, from Sakar International, is geared toward Apple iPod users, in that it features a wireless radio transmitter, cradle and charging base — an all in one “convenient” unit — that allows users to listen to their tunes and charge their iPod while driving.
The wireless radio transmitter sends music to the auto's sound system through the radio's FM dial. Consumers can select up to four radio stations to tune into the iPod's music, ensuring the best sound quality. No batteries are required. Users just put their iPod into the cradle and plug it into the car's lighter.
The Sakar kit cradle fits both regular and mini iPods, rotates 360 degrees and comes in white, black and wood grain to match a car's interior. The unit weighs four ounces and folds flat for ease of storage.
The car kit soon will be available for the Creative Zen, iRiver, Samsung and many other portable music players, said Sakar.
Suggested retail is $49.99.
