Charging with style


The latest offering from Strut, a California–based seller of luxury automobile accessories, is an iPad recharging system that mounts and powers most available versions of the tablet.

The new system comprises a special case and a charging pedestal crafted from jewelry-grade stainless steel that is chromed and then triple-buffed. An array of magnets holds the tablet securely in place while the iPad charges inductively without wires. The spherical pedestal can be rotated in any direction and the swiveling docking port allows the iPad to be switched between vertical and horizontal orientations. The Strut Launchport is priced at $1,250 and the case is available in a range of colours. (949.369.9126,
