Scosche Sneakpeek 2 Makes It Easy to Hook an iPad or iPhone to Your Tv

 |  |  |  |  |  October 10, 2010

There are a lot of folks out there who have an iPad or iPhone that  like to stream content with from various sources like YouTube, Netflix, their video camera or their media library. The catch is that it can be a hassle getting that video onto a larger screen for viewing. You can use a dock that has TV outputs, but those tend to take up a lot of space and if your entertainment center is as crowded as mine that can be an issue.


Scosche has unveiled a new cable today that is sort of like a docking station minus the dock part. The thing is called the sneakPEEK II, it has a normal Apple docking connector on one end, and the other end has both composite and component inputs. That lets you choose whatever input works best for your situation, and allows the thing to work on newer HD sets and older ones alike.

The cool part is that the sneakPEEK II will also allow you to charge the Apple device while you playback the video thanks to an integrated micro USB connector and AC adapter. Scosche points out that the cable is compatible with Netflix right out of the box. You can order yours up for some big screen streaming action for $59.99(USD). If it works with Hulu Plus on the iPad, it would be perfect for me.
