TUNEWEAR ships new gear
TUNEWEAR has launched three new products: the PRIE Ambassador and PRIE Slim for the iPod nano 4G, along with the TUNEMAX Car Charger, which supports all USB-based iPods. The Ambassador is a genuine leather case with a carabiner that hooks to belts or straps. The carabiner can be removed for pocket travel, and its loop can be used with a lanyard. The case gives access to the headphone jack and hold switch, and is lined with velvet to protect an iPod from scratches and impacts. It arrives with a screen protector, and is available in black or white leather with seven stitching accent colors. It is now shipping for $40.
The PRIE Slim is a black nappa leather case with a felt liner for scratch protection, and cushioning material within the case for impact resistance. The case has a loop for a carabiner or lanyard, offers access to all ports, and has an open face for the clickwheel and display. It ships with a protective film for both the display and the wheel. The Slim case is available for $25.
TUNWEAR's TUNEMAX car charger plugs into a 12V outlet, and converts the power for a USB output. It can charge any device that supports USB charging, including iPods, iPhones and other mobile devices. A self-resetting fuse protects devices from power surges, and a blue LED light signals active charging. The TUNEMAX is shipping for $25.
