This week in accessories: Cove Charging Station from Griffin Technology and more

May 1, 2015

Welcome back to our weekly look at some of the newest iOS device accessories. In this week’s edition, we’re highlighting a home recharging center, a beautiful gift for mom, and more.

Cove Charging Station from Griffin Technology


Griffin, for the first time ever, is offering a new accessory via the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo. The Cove Home Charging Station contains five, 12-watt USB ports capable of charging up to five iPads, or other USB devices, at one time. All the charging cables are tucked safely and neatly inside the station. The low-profile sliding door closes to conceal the devices and can also be tilted out to serve as a hands-free stand.

Right now, for a pledge of $150, you can snag a cover in one of three wood colors – birch, walnut, or ebony. All pledges are estimated to ship in December. With a little more than two weeks left to go in the campaign, Griffin has easily passed its original $30,000 goal with almost $50,000 raised.
