Got An Entire Family Of iOS Devices? Griffin’s New PowerDock Charges Five At Once [CES 2013]



Griffin has a new lineup of charging accessories at CES in Las Vegas, one of which is ideal for those who have collected an entire family of iOS devices. It’s called the PowerDock 5 and it charges up to five devices at any one time, storing them away neatly to save space on your desk.

PowerDock 5 is the “ultimate space-saving, countertop charging and storage solution.” It contains five charging bays that are large enough to hold an iPad in the “largest of cases.” Simply slot your device inside and plug in its Lightning cable. The PowerDock 5 has five USB ports along its edge, which intelligently sense the requirements of any device you plug in, then provide the optimal charge.

The PowerDock will be available this spring, priced at $99.99.

Griffin has also announced the PowerBlock Universal, and the PowerJolt Universal, both of which employ the company’s new ChargeSensor technology. The first is designed for the home, with a low-profile design for power strips and plugs. Stick it into any AC power source from 100 to 240 volts and PowerBlock converts it to a safe, efficient 10-watt charging solution for smartphones, tablets, and e-readers.


The PowerJolt Universal is designed for your car’s 12-volt accessory outlet, and includes SmartFuse technology to protect your devices against power fluctuations.

The PowerBlock Universal is priced at $29.99, and the PowerJolt Universal is $24.99. Like the PowerDock 5, they’ll both be available in the spring.
