Marware, Scosche debut new iPad cases and USB chargers

Eco-Flip case works as table top stand

Marware and Scosche have both announced new iPad accessories, including the Eco-Flip case and two new USB chargers. The new Eco-Flip leather case is the latest product from Marware, resembling the recently released Eco-Vue case. The Eco-Flip flips open vertically, allowing the top to be folded back, while the Eco-Vue opens from the side.

The new design allows the accessory to be used either a case, which protects the screen of the iPad, or as a low-angle stand. Features include an integrated hand strap for enhanced grip, along with a closure strap and fold-over tab to keep the iPad securely in place.

Scosche has added two new products to its line of iPad accessories, the reVIVE II Dual USB Home Charger and reVIVE II Dual USB Car Charger. Both devices feature a 2.1-amp USB port for charging the iPad, along with a 1-Amp USB port that can be used to charge other electronic devices.

In addition to the USB chargers, Scosche has also unveiled the kickBACK P1, a new shatterproof polycarbonate and rubber case for iPads. The protective accessory is also equipped with a locking kick stand that can be used for vertical or horizontal orientation. Unlike both chargers which are available now, the kickBACK is not planned for release until early summer.

The Eco-Flip can be found on Marware's website for $45 and comes in a black color. The two USB chargers can be purchased from Scosche and are priced at $24 for the car charger or $30 for the home version.

    Alternative to $30 charger

    Bought several of these (2A, dual output USB chargers):

    Works GREAT with the iPad. Much cheaper than the options shown here.

    Charge AND Sync?

    I'm hoping a company comes out with a combination charging/sync solution, that let's you do BOTH simultaneously. Something like that would sell well.

    Re: Charge and sync

    Apple already sells this. It's called "a new mac". Since their newer computers use their non-standard USB with extra power, you can plug it in and it will sync and charge. And starting at the low-low price of $600.

    Of course, if they still had firewire syncing, we'd be set with any 6-pin ol' firewire connector.

    iPad Pedestal Base

    I use the Pedestal Base from newpcgadgets to hold my iPad. I like it because it looks like the acrylic bases used at the Apple Stores. I needed something for home to hold my iPad.
