NewerTech has launched the NuPower Charge & Sync+, a pocket-sized charger. The unit can charge, power and sync iPhones and iPods, as well as simply charge and power USB-based cellphones, cameras and portable game consoles. It uses a rechargeable 1400mAh lithium-ion battery, and can charge both itself and another device when an AC connection is present.
For Apple devices, the charger includes its own dock connector; other hardware is supported via micro- and mini-USB cables. The accessory is listed as compatible with all iPhones, and any iPod with a dock connector. It is now shipping for $40 from Other World Computing and other retailers.
