Griffin Announces New PowerJolt Charger for iPods

NASHVILLE, TN –Monday, April 24, 2006.

Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced a new, updated PowerJolt Auto Charger and Power Adapter for iPod. PowerJolt has been redesigned for ease of use, and its new stylish black industrial design complements any auto's interior. PowerJolt charges your iPod whether it's playing music or in standby mode. With PowerJolt, you can listen to your music library while you drive, and still arrive at your destination with a fully charged iPod. PowerJolt plugs into any available 12V accessory port or cigarette lighter socket. A convenient status LED shows at a glance that your iPod is connected, and changes color to indicate whether the iPod is charging or fully charged. PowerJolt protects your iPod, too, with a replaceable fuse, so you won't have to worry about overcharging or power surges.

PowerJolt comes with a detachable, high quality 48" USB to Dock Connector cable that can be used for normal syncing and docking operations with your computer. And, for use with Griffin iTrip and iTrip nano, the PowerJolt package also includes a 48" USB to mini-USB cable.

Free Software — The Music Your iPod’s Been Missing

As if these features, alone, wouldn't make the PowerJolt package an indispensable addition to any road warrior's iPod survival kit, the package now includes a free LE version of Griffin's exclusive iFill software.

iFill LE streams MP3 files from thousands of free Internet radio stations directly to your iPod. iFill makes Internet radio easy. Browse and choose Internet radio stations from within iFill's familiar iTunes-like interface. Files go directly to your iPod without cluttering up your hard drive. iFill brings new audio content to you while you sleep, from many different genres all over the world, and you get to try new music before you buy. Using iFill is this easy: 1. Open iFill; 2. Select a radio station; 3. Click Record. Done! Fresh music delivered right to your iPod.

The new PowerJolt package: Redesigned looks, charging while you listen, power protection for your iPod, and free, fresh audio content.
