XtremeMac has introduced various new products, compatible with the iPhone 3G and the newest iPod models. These include the Micropack, Travel Dock and FireWire-to-USB adapter, as well as five InCharge models: the Duo, Auto, FM, Travel and Home. The Micropack is an iPhone 3G case that provides additional power, equivalent to an full charge. It costs $80, and includes a USB charging cable.

The Travel Dock serves as a folding stand to orient an iPhone for watching video, and is priced at $30. The $50 FireWire-to-USB adapter converts power from a 30-pin FireWire port to USB, allowing it to charge iPhones and iPods.

The InCharge Duo can be used for charging or syncing two iPhones or iPods simultaneously, while status indicators show the status of each battery. The Duo costs $50, and is bundled with a USB cable. The similar InCharge Auto connects to a 12V vehicle port and is set at $30.

The InCharge FM transmitter broadcasts audio from a phone or iPod to a car's stereo, and uses a "SmartTune" function to scan for clear frequencies. The unit also provides charging, and costs $80.

The InCharge Travel includes three international plug adapters and a USB cable for $50. The InCharge Home uses a wall outlet to charge a phone, which is said to be twice as fast as USB charging. The device includes a cable and is being priced at $20.

All products should be available at XtremeMac.com, though the InCharge Home, Auto and Travel are shipping later this month. The Travel Dock, InCharge FM, FireWire adapter and Micropack will be available in October, and the InCharge Duo will not ship until November.

    30 pin?

    I don't think I've ever seen a 30 pin firewire port, only 4 and 6.
