Griffin Announces PowerJolt for iPhone

Nashville, TN - July 2nd, 2007

Griffin Technology today unveiled its PowerJolt® Car Charger for iPhone™, the company's first accessory for Apple's new revolutionary device. Recently updated specifically for iPhone, Griffin's PowerJolt has long been a best selling car charger solution for iPod.

"We applaud Apple for its continued innovation, from iMac to iPod, and now iPhone. We expect this to be another market-changing moment," said Paul Griffin, founder of Griffin Technology. "We look forward to supporting Apple’s vision with innovative accessories."

PowerJolt for iPhone

Plug PowerJolt into your vehicle's cigarette lighter or accessory power socket, and connect your iPhone to charge even during use. PowerJolt’s charge indicator glows green to show it's powered up and ready to go, amber while it's charging, and green again when it's finished charging your battery.

PowerJolt sets itself apart from its imitators with features like built-in power-management. The in-line 2 Amp automotive fuse ensures you need not be concerned about power surges affecting your iPhone. And should the fuse ever need replacing, it's easily obtained at any auto-parts or hardware store.

PowerJolt’s usefulness is not limited to iPhone, it’s also backwards compatible with iPod models that use the full-size Apple dock connector, and with first-generation iPod shuffle. The new PowerJolt ships with a high-quality detachable dock connector cable that can be used separately for charging and syncing to your computer; and with a separate USB mini-B cable that allows Griffin iTrip users to charge through iTrip's pass-through USB port.

PowerJolt is ready to use right out of the box, and comes with everything you need to travel and arrive with a fully-charged iPhone and iPod.

  • Works in car cigarette lighter or 12V accessory socket
