IK Multimedia just released a charger for both your iOS device and iRig gear. The iRig PowerBridge acts like a power adapter: You plug it into a wall socket, plug your iRig device to it, and then connect your iPad or iPhone to its charging lead, whether Thunderbolt or the older 30-pin spec.
The iRig series offers DJs and mobile producers a variety of interface and control options for iOS. iRig Pads, for instance, is a pad controller for making beats and performing live, and iRig Keys is a three-octave portable keyboard controller that’s great for making music on the go. The iRig PowerBridge solves the problem of keeping your iOS device juiced while using iRig kit, which used to be an inconvenience since the Thunderbolt / 30-pin port acts as both the power socket and accessory connector.
Check out the video below to see it in action.
The iRig PowerBridge is available now for US$69. Visit the IK Multimedia website for more details.
