passPORT charging adapter
Scosche Industries has launched a new adapter, the passPORT, which allows charging of iPhones, the second-generation iPod touch and the fourth-generation iPod nano from previously incompatible chargers. The technology functions by means of a female passthrough connection, which bridges iPhones and iPods with a variety of charging hardware. The gear is officially approved by Apple, and costs $30. It is available now at the Apple Store.
