Portable iPhone dock with built in battery: Kensington

Techstination feature for Wednesday, February 9, 2011

    A portable iPhone dock with a built in battery.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     There are so many accessories on the market these days for the iPhone or iPod Touch…it’s hard to keep track.    And some are much more useful than others.   One of the latest gadgets from Kensington is the PowerLift.    Global product manager Jim Murakami….

It’s a 1200 milliamp hour capacity battery with one amp output, as well as a portable docking solution.   The reason why we think the portable docking solution is so important is the marriage between applications like FaceTime, which are very power hungry, in addition to having, actually, a portable dock that allows you to not only use the battery inline, but also use it in a docking mode when you’re using an application like FaceTime.”

     PowerLift arrives this month for about fifty dollars and includes a USB cable built right in.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
