CES 2012: Charger with an app



Scosche Industries has announced five new additions to its Power line of chargers at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. All the chargers work with the free reVIVE battery management app for both IOS and Android devices.

The reVIVE app is a graphical representation of how much time users have left to watch, talk, listen, surf, and how long it will take to recharge. The new reVOLT h2 and c2 dual 2.1A USB chargers pack enough power to refuel two power hungry tablets simultaneously at home or on the go. Scosche say the reVOLT c2 is the first “shotgun shell sized”” car charger to fit two 2.1A USB ports into such a compact form factor. The 2.1A reCOIL II car charger with a retractable 30 pin cable allows users to neatly charge an iPod, iPhone or iPad. The 3 foot long, magnetically locking cable eliminates unsightly cable clutter when not in use. Scosche will also unveil the newest generation of the ever popular reviveLITE docking charger and LED nightlight for iPod and iPhone. ThereviveLITE III features a side 2.1A USB port for charging an iPad or additional device. The company will also display a micro USB version of its popular flipCHARGE burst backup battery and charger at CES. Capable of charging an Android phone up to 30% of full power, the flipCHARGE provides an emergency burst of power. A folding USB cable allows users to charge and sync their phone while powering up the flipCHARGE burst.
