Griffin Technology has introduced several new accessories for the iPad: Loop stand for iPad, PowerBlock Plus charger for iPad, 3 Meter USB to Dock Cable, and Elan Passport Nylon case for iPad. Here is more info on these new iPad accessories from Griffin:
Loop A clean, simple stand, weighted and shaped to hold your iPad upright for viewing, or laid back for surfing and typing. Loop holds your iPad securely in both landscape and portrait modes. Loop's cushioned cradle protects your iPad from scratches and prevents unwanted movement while you use it. The open-loop design leaves room to plug in your dock cable so you can charge or sync during use. Non-slip rubber feet protect your furniture and hold everything steady.
PowerBlock Plus PowerBlock Plus adds an additional AC outlet to Griffin's best-selling AC wall charger. Plug PowerBlock Plus into any 100 to 240 volt AC outlet and connect iPad, iPhone, or iPod for 2.1 amp charging. While it's charging your device, PowerBlock Plus gives you an additional AC plug so you can leave the lamp, clock radio, etc., plugged in. Or even charge another iPad. With PowerBlock Plus, you won't have to unplug what's charging to regain use of that outlet.
Also available is PowerBlock Plus Universal, a universally-compatible charger with additional AC plug, designed to work with any device that charges via USB. Both versions of PowerBlock Plus are Energy Star 5 certified, meaning you save energy, even when you aren't using them.
3 Meter USB to Dock Cable Ever wish you could charge your iPad while you use it, even if the nearest AC outlet is out of reach? This USB-to-Apple Dock cable is almost 10 feet long and built with heavy-duty 16-gauge conductors to handle the 2.1 amp power needs of Apple's iPad. Connect this cable to your computer's USB port to sync your iPad, iPod, or iPhone; or to any 2 amp USB power source (we suggest our own 2 amp PowerBlock or PowerJolt) and charge from almost 10 feet away.
Elan Passport Nylon for iPad The popular Elan Passport for iPad, now available in beautiful black nylon. The one-piece folio flips open to reveal your Multi-Touch display, then closes like a book for privacy and protection. Elan Passport's microsuede lining protects your iPad, all over, from scratches and smudges. The inner cover includes pockets for cards and important papers, and the cover is held shut by a secure tab closure. You're going to take your iPad everywhere. So you'll need the case that's ready for anything.
