DLO Intros New iPod Nano-Ready, Intelligent Car Charger
DLO AutoPod Car Charger Features a Stunning New Design, Intelligent Status Light and Comes in 'nano' Black & White
CHARLESTON, SC. September 13, 2005 - Digital Lifestyle Outfitters (DLO), makers of the popular TransPod® Car Solution and other exciting accessories for the iPod, today announced the new DLO AutoPod(TM) Car Charger for iPod, iPod mini and the new iPod nano. The DLO AutoPod comes in both white and black versions that match the new iPod nano perfectly and feature a color-coded, three-stage charging status indicator. The new DLO AutoPods cost just $24.99 and are available immediately at www.dlo.com and at Best Buy Stores nationwide in October, 2005.
The new DLO AutoPod has received a complete redesign that includes stylish new curves, a transparent status light lens and a new black or white glass finish. It also includes Velcro tabs that allow a user to mount the ultra-light iPod nano, connected to their AutoPod, anywhere they want in their car. This combination of design and functionality makes AutoPod simply the best car charger for the new iPod nano available.
"We designed our new AutoPod charger to look like nothing else available today. With most chargers looking very boring, the new AutoPod matches the beauty and design integrity of the amazing iPods it attaches to," said Andrew Green VP Marketing & Design for DLO. "The Intelligent Status Light is a great functional addition too. The charger module glows red for power on status, amber when it's charging your iPod and green when your iPod's battery is fully charged and ready to go."
The DLO AutoPod fits all dockable iPods including the iPod, iPod mini and iPod nano. It charges the iPod's battery from any cigarette lighter or 12v outlet in a car or truck. The AutoPod comes with a 24 inch coiled cord that stretches to over five feet in length. The Intelligent Status Light in the base of the AutoPod glows three different colors to show both AutoPod power status and the iPod's charging status.
Pricing and Availability:
The DLO AutoPod for iPod, iPod mini and iPod Nano costs $24.99 and is available immediately online at www.dlo.com and at Best Buy in early October, 2005.
