New Belkin phone chargers

Portable electronics accessories maker Belkin on Monday announced the instant availability of its Micro Auto Charger and the upcoming release of the Dual Auto Charger. Either device plugs into a car's dashboard DC power plug and provides one (Micro) or two (Dual) USB ports, allowing users to charge their electronics devices that are equipped with USB or mini USB ports. The Micro Auto Charger is compact, sitting nearly flush with a car's dashboard, and is capable of charging devices at 1 amp of power, making it suitable for charging certain GPS systems as well.

The Dual Auto Charger is bulkier as it offers two USB charging ports, one of which is capable of charging devices at 1 amp, the other at 500 milliamps, which is still enough for iPods, iPhones and BlackBerries. A sync and charge cable for docking iPods and iPhones is included with the Belkin Dual Auto Charger.

The Dual Auto Charger is available now for nearly $30, while the Micro Auto Charger will ship early in May for $15. Bundled with a 3-foot charge/sync cable for iPhones and iPods, the Micro Auto Charger is priced at $20.
