For the past couple of months, I've had very busy weekends because I've been helping out a couple of friends launch a product.
Why talk about it today? Because today is launch day!
I'm talking about "the ion" - a charger for your iPod. Get the ion, plug in the iPod and connect the other end to the electric socket, and your iPod gets charged. No PC, no fuss, no muss.
In fact, it works with any device that charges through USB, whether it is your iRiver, or any mp3 player, or your mobile phone!
Some more cool features:
- The ion is portable, you can carry it around anywhere, especially to places where you will not have access to a computer.
- Do you really need to switch on your computer the whole night just to charge your iPod?
- You can listen to your music when your iPod is getting charged by the ion, instead of staring at the 'Do not disconnect' message.
- An awesome looking product. A great companion for the iPod.
All this for just Rs.399 only. As a bonus, you get solid reliability because the ion has a voltage regulator circuit that protects your device from power surges. Most existing charger products out there do not have such protection.
We're going to get the product out in the stores soon, but* the quickest way to
get an ion is to buy it online right now!
We'll also be trying to get the posters put up in all the IT companies so that more people get to know about the ion. If you can help us with this, please do drop us a line, we'd be glad to hear from you. If you want to grab the posters yourself, you can get the digital version and set it as your wallpaper and help us spread the word about ion :)
If you are curious about how the ion was born and how it was transformed into a real product that we are holding in our hand today, you can read about the interesting history of the ion.
Last but not the least, if you have any sorts of questions, doubts, queries or feedback, please do write to us.
* Due to various circumstances, ion will not be available in stores, it will only be available online!
