LaunchPort is finally releasing a sleeve for the new iPad, which makes it compatible with the company's inductive charging gear. It goes on sale in September for a hefty $149, and of course, you'll also need at least one $199 tabletop or wall mount to connect it to. The sleeve also works with the iPad 2, and if you're thinking about getting one, be quick -- it's only a matter of time before resonance charging renders inductive juicing a little passé.
LaunchPort offers Futuristic, Inductive Charging Solution for The new iPad with the AP.3 Sleeve
Creator of the world's first inductive charging and mounting system for iPad releases its AP.3 Magnetic Sleeve for The new iPad and iPad 2
SAN CLEMENTE, CA (August 29, 2012) - LaunchPort, creator of the world's first inductive charging and mounting system for the iPad, has just announced its new AP.3 magnetic sleeve for The new iPad and iPad 2. The AP.3 Sleeve fits snugly onto your iPad, allowing you to magnetically mount it to LaunchPort's base station and wall system as well as most metallic surfaces such as refrigerators or work benches. The inductive charging system begins working as soon as the AP.3 sleeve is connected to a Wall Station or Base Station.
At the crux of convenience, LaunchPort's cable-free mounting and charging solution for the iPad eliminates the need for disorderly wires and plugs while also keeping the iPad accessible, fully-charged and mounted in an ideal angle and location at all times.
"As iPads become commonplace in the modern, technological home, it's becoming more important that we keep the iPad conveniently close by and charged," said Derick Dahl, LaunchPort product manager, "LaunchPort's inductive charging systems are the perfect addition to the home for people who frequently use battery-intensive iPad applications such as music streaming services, cooking apps, home automation, social media networks and television streaming services."
The AP.3 Sleeve is ergonomically designed with comfortable hand grips on each side, contouring to fit and work with The new iPad and iPad 2. Using a strong magnet system, the AP.3 Sleeve securely attaches to the base station or wall station, while also making it easy to mount and dismount the iPad when needed. While mounted, users can rotate the AP.3 sleeve 360 degrees for multi-purpose use, making it convenient to use the iPad in either portrait or landscape views.
The new AP.3 Sleeve is available for $149 in gloss white or black. The sleeve, wall station and base station are sold separately and will be available online at www.LaunchPort.com.
