A maioria dos carregadores USB de carro se parece com um pesadelo perfeito de design ruim e nerdice. A Belkin tomou conhecimento disto e nos ofereceu o respeitável Micro Carregador de Automóvel (também percebendo que carregadores de carro com 4 portas USB são meio exagerados).

O carregador possui uma porta USB de 1 ampere que promete recarregar gadgets bem rapidamente. Além disto, não há muito o que dizer sobre o troço, exceto que ele recarrega praticamente qualquer coisa que você consiga enfiar um cabo USB. A Belkin também lançou um carregador com 2 portas, que acrescenta uma porta USB extra de 500 mA, mas é gordo e feio e tem uma porta a mais do que deveria.

Você pode comprar só o Micro Carregador de Automóvel por 15 dólares, ou, se você quiser incluir um cabo para iPod/iPhone, serão 20 dólares. O Duplo Carregador de Automóvel vem completo com um cabo para iPod/iPhone por 30 dólares. Press release abaixo.

 

Charge Your iPod and iPhone in Your Car with Belkin’s New Micro Auto Charger and Dual Auto Charger

* Keep your iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry®, or other USB charging device, charged while in the car
* Micro Auto Charger’s design adds no extra bulk as it sits nearly flush with your dashboard

(Compton, CA) – April 20, 2009 – Belkin’s new Micro Auto Charger and Dual Auto Charger charge your iPod or iPhone battery in your car, making it convenient to power up a dead phone or iPod.

Micro Auto Charger is packaged in a compact design and adds no extra bulk to your dashboard. Sitting nearly flush with your dashboard, the Micro Auto Charger still allows room on its lip for you to easily detach it from your dashboard. It also charges at 1 amp-ideal for iPhone devices and certain GPS systems in that it will charge at the device’s fullest power.

With its two USB ports, the Dual Auto Charger lets you charge your iPod through one port while charging your cell phone in the other, simultaneously. One quick-charge port powers at 1 amp for your iPhone, and the second port charges at 500 milliamps, which will support iPod devices and cell phones such as BlackBerry phones.
