Belkin Components has introduced a new line of “eGo” personal digital assistant (PDA) accessories.
The eGo line features 8 SKUs and offers PDA and Palm users products to protect, connect and supply power to their PDAs. All products will ship September 1.
One of the new products is a USB-to-PDA Adapter. It features a built-in USB device cable that provides plug-and-play connectivity for synchronizing data between a PDA and a computer. The USB-to-PDA adapter works with Palm series organizers and other popular handheld PDAs and is equipped with a status LED that lets consumers monitor data transfer activity.
The eGo line features “Coach” style fine grain leather cases that with Belkin’s Stretch Fit Universal Design. Cases come in black and tan, and have tongue-and-loop closures on all models. To complement the cases, Belkin offers its Tri-Pack of Flip Covers in red, green and smoke. They protect a PDA’s screen from damage that comes from dropping or scratches. The line also includes a PDA cleaning kit. This screen cleaner adds a protective layer while cleaning. It also reduces pen drag and enhances Stylus-to-Screen communication.
The eGo line also provides tools to charge a PDA. The Home and Car Recharging Kit converts disposable battery Palm III and VII into a rechargeable battery platform. It includes a car charging kit and converter that allows for plugging into any AC outlet to charge and features a dual color LED that glows red for charging, and green for when charging is completed. The Palm V Car Charger, D/C plugs into any car charging port and charges Palm V series PDAs and also includes a dual LED for battery monitoring.
