TomTom Launches High Speed Multi-Charger
"The new High Speed Multi-Charger is the first TomTom accessory that enables users to charge their sat nav device and other mobile devices at the same time - such as their phone or a power-hungry portable DVD player - and to charge them faster than with other chargers," says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director at TomTom. "Sleek, small and boasting TomTom's award-winning design, this is a neat in-car, in-truck, or in-caravan charger".
All devices will receive full-power charging simultaneously, and whereas most competitor products state they can charge up to 2.1 amps, that power is split between different ports, the High Speed Multi-Charger has two dedicated USB ports that provide full power at all times.
As well as a 1.2 amp USB charging port for mobile phones or MP3 players, there's a 2.1 amp port to speed-charge high power USB devices such as an iPad or iPhone. This charges up to four times faster - without impacting the other port's capability. In addition there's a dedicated port for powering 12V in-car devices like DVD players.
This means that drivers who are always on the road can charge and use all their electronic devices during the trip at once. And those planning a long drive this holiday season will be able to keep the kids happy with an in-car DVD system and top up their mobile phone charge - all while navigating with their TomTom device.
The new TomTom High Speed Multi-Charger will be available at £19.99 from Amazon, Dixons, Comet, Halfords and online at www.tomtom.com.
