Two Lightning, one USB device chargeable from one clock
The migration to the Apple 30-pin dock cable wasn't well received initially back in 2003, but it opened the floodgates for a series of accessories customized to the iPod ecosystem. To fulfill the drive for thinner devices, the first Lightning-equipped devices shipped last fall, but with somewhat less-than-outstanding peripheral support. An early adopter of the technology, iHome, has embraced the concept that users have more than one device that may need charging simultaneously. Displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Electronista was given the chance to live with the iHome iDL100G dual Lightning clock radio and alarm clock for a month in-home, checking to see how we thought it fared.
