LaunchPort AP.3 Sleeve allows inductive iPad charging

updated 11:08 pm EDT, Wed August 29, 2012

Requires wall- or base-mounted charger

LaunchPort has announced the AP.3 Sleeve, a new accessory for the iPad 2 and third-generation iPad. The case fits around the back of an iPad, and is designed for use with the company's BaseStation and WallStation chargers, which supply power to an iPad through inductive charging instead of cables. LaunchPort estimates that it should take about four hours for a 0-100 recharge.

Mounted iPads can be rotated 360 degrees. Without one of the chargers, the case's rear magnet can be used to attach it to a metallic surface such as a refrigerator. Other AP.3 features include a mini USB port -- which can be used for wired charging, or syncing with a computer -- and audio channeling, which redirects sound toward the front of the case. Black and white versions are available.

LaunchPort plans on selling the case for $149 toward the end of September. The BaseStation and WallStation chargers, meanwhile, are already shipping for $199 each.
