Lightning adapters from iLuv announced for January
Accessory maker iLuv has announced a line of charging accessories for the iPhone 5, new iPods and iPad mini with the new Lightning connector. Five new products, expected to be available in January, will offer charge and sync cables, dual-USB and very compact USB car and home chargers for users with Lightning-equipped products. Each comes with a Lightning-to-USB charge and sync cable included that is compatible with most other USB-based chargers as well. All of the new offerings work with the iPhone, iPods and iPad mini.

The DualPin Combo is a car charger that can charge up to two iPods, iPad minis or iPhone 5 units thanks to its two USB ports. It features a swivelling plug base to allow flexible placement. The RockWall Combo is a similar device used for wall charging as well as syncing for all the new Apple devices.

The company's MobiSeal line of existing chargers expands to include the MobiSeal Combo micro-sized single-USB car charger and MobiSeal Deluxe Combo, the latter of which is an adaptable single-USB port wall or car charger. Both feature a compact design to fit most power-socket locations and indicate when they are done charging with a blue LED light.

Pricing on the various accessories range from $20 to $65, but individual prices have not yet been announced. The Lightning cables and adapters will be available from iLuv and various retail outlets starting early next year.
