When it comes to accessories like cables, docks and all sorts of other stuff for Apple devices like iPods and the iPhone, Scosche is a big favorite for many. Scosche is also big on accessories for the iPad as well. One of the first things that many iPad buyers realized when they went to charge their iPad from a computer is that not all USB ports are up to the task of charging the iPad thanks to the iPad needing 2.1 amps of power. That means many notebook and PC USB ports won't charge the iPad.

Scosche put some cool chargers for the iPad up for pre-order a while back called the reVIVE II chargers. Both of the chargers are very similar with one notable difference. One of them is designed for use in the home with your AC outlet and the other is designed for use in the car via a DC outlet. Both of the chargers pack in dual USB ports.


One of those USB ports has the 2.1 amps of power you need to charge up your trusty iPad. The other USB port is a normal 1 amp unit that can charge your iPhone or any other device needing power from USB. The DC car version will charge your gear just as fast as the AC wall version will. The car version of the reVIVE II charger is available right now for $24.99 and the home version is offered for $29.99. Both of them can be purchased on
