London – February, 2010 - Griffin Technology, maker of ingenious ways to power, play, protect and connect, today confirms UK availability of the PowerBlock Reserve, a unique power device that combines Griffin's best-selling PowerBlock AC wall charger for USB devices with a detachable reserve battery for the iPod and iPhone.
In Apple stores from February, the innovative PowerBlock Reserve battery is held in place on the wall charger by way of a unique magnetic connection, and charges simultaneously with any other USB devices connected. Once charged, the compact reserve battery detaches from the charger and fits easily into a pocket, so you will never be without power when you need it - simply connect your iPod or iPhone for a quick and safe energy boost.
"The addition of a removable battery to the PowerBlock charger means you can take the power with you when you go," said Paul Griffin, founder and CEO of Griffin Technology, "It is a simple and reliable backup to ensure iPod and iPhone users never run out of power on the move."
The PowerBlock Reserve also features:
· A built-in USB port for charging any USB device
· An LED indicator on the battery pack, which lets you know the available charge at the touch of a button.
· Two international versions, with appropriate plug adapters, for the EU and UK and for Australia.
