SendStation announces smartCharge — the ultimate car charger for iPod shuffle

Frankfurt/Main, Germany — August 24, 2005 — SendStation Systems, creators of the popular PocketDock line of iPod adaptors, today announced the smartCharge all-in-one car charger for the iPod shuffle. With its unique design, smartCharge is poised to become the platinum standard in iPod shuffle car chargers.

“The smartCharge’s design clearly makes it the most suitable match for the iPod shuffle,” says André Klein, SendStation Systems’ founder. “If you are looking for the perfect companion when taking your shuffle on the road, smartCharge should be your first and only choice. No other charger better reflects the sleek lines of the iPod shuffle.”

smartCharge not only has awesome good looks, it’s also the most compact car charger available: The single-piece, cable-free design weighs a mere 30 grams (1.1 oz.), slips easily into virtually any pocket, and can thus be taken anywhere.

A built-in 3.5 mm (1/8") industry-standard audio jack allows you to hook up any cassette adapter or use line-in sockets found on many car stereos without constantly re- and disconnecting the iPod — just grab your iPod shuffle and go.

A unique feature of the unit is that the docked iPod shuffle can be tilted 72°, giving the user convenient access to the shuffle’s control buttons.

An invisibly integrated LED displays power status, and the easily replaceable fuse protects the attached iPod shuffle. By attaching a USB-iPod docking cable, smartCharge can also be used to charge fourth generation iPods and iPod minis.

Built and tested to Apple standards with top-notch quality, smartCharge carries Apple’s official “Made for iPod” badge.
