If you’re like me and tend to leave things in the car as you’re going about your day’s busy agenda, you probably hate carrying your only charging cable for your iPhone with you on the road. It’s nice to be able to keep the smartphone charged, but inevitably I end up having to run out to the car, in the cold at two o’clock in the morning when I realize I need to charge my phone. This is particularly bad now that I use an iPhone 5 since I only have a single Lightning-compatible charging cable.
Sure, I could buy an extra charging cable from Apple, but I would have to keep a USB to 12V adapter for the car as well. Scosche has unveiled a new line of products designed specifically for charging Apple Lightning devices in the car or at home.
The chargers are available in 12W or 5W versions with the higher power versions aimed at people using tablets. The strikeDRIVE car chargers have integrated DC adapters, while the strikeBASE home versions have flat folding prongs and are designed to not block outlets around them..
All four charging cables are available right now, and are priced between $24.99 and $34.99(USD).
