The problem with most travel chargers and power bars with USB ports is that they are underpowered and will not power or charge newer generations of iPhones and iPads. I hate when the “Charging is not Supported” message comes up on my iPhone whenever I try to plug it into a non-compliant USB or 30-Pin Dock Connector.
The new Energizer iSurge Travel Charging Station is fully compatible with all iOS devices including iPhone, iPad and iPod. The iSurge comes complete with a top-mounted 30 pin dock connector for the iPhone or iPod and a pair of USB ports with 2.1 Amp output for fast charging of the iPad or other devices. The iSurge includes a three surge protected AC outlets and integrated nightlight. The complete housing will rotate 180 degrees for flexibility in tight spaces.
We like the Energizer iSurge and have only one complaint, we wish it came in White instead of black or a choice of color? White or Black. White of course would match our power outlets and is easier to find and see when it drops on the floor of the hotel room behind the credenza.
The release date for the Energizer iSurge is October 2011 (just in time for Christmas) with a MSRP of $59.99.
