The launch of the iPhone 5 not only brought an iPhone with a larger screen, but it also introduced the Lightning connector. Since then, Apple’s new Lightning connector has made it to the iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad, which means accessory makers have been scrambling to provide updated accessories to help support the new connector.
Scosche is one accessory maker that has yet to provide official Lightning connector compatible cables, but starting today, that will change as the company is announcing its line of Lightning connector cables.
Scosche is making two sets of wall and car chargers available in 5W, which are only can only charge the iPhone and iPod touch, and a 12W version, which can charge any iOS device you throw at the charging cable.
The last product Scosche is updating with Lightning cable support is one of my favorites, the 3-foot retractable Lightning-to-USB cable which I found to be the perfect size to throw into my work bag to ensure I always have a charging cable with me at all times.
All of Scosche’s chargers are available for sale on Scosche.com as well as retailers like AT&T, Wal-Mart and other Apple Premium Retailers.
