Scosche To Release New Lineup Of Lightning Accessories

Scosche To Release New Lineup Of Lightning AccessoriesA little over a week ago, Belkin announced that it was the first official Apple partner to market Lightning-enabled accessories. Now, Scosche is announcing that it’s planning to release its own lineup of Lightning accessories, which can be used at home and in the car.

Here’s what Scosche had to say during the announcement:

“Smartphones and tablets are an integral part of our daily lives, but keeping them all charged can create several challenges,” said Kas Alves, Executive Vice President of Scosche Industries. “We designed our Lightning chargers with flexibility in mind. The new line provides power solutions for home and on the go and addresses the varying wattage requirements of our favorite devices, the need to charge multiple devices simultaneously and is capable of powering multiple devices with different connections with the same charger.”

Scosche hasn’t announced an official launch day for the new accessories yet, but the company did hint that “some of them should ship prior to CES” in early January. Here’s a full list of Scosche’s upcoming lineup:
