Griffin Technology Announces Availability of Premium Charge/Sync Cables with Lightning Connector

Griffin Technology announced the availability of their Premium Charge/Sync Cables with Lightning connector. At the heart of Griffin’s new cables is the easy-connecting reversible USB that can be plugged in regardless of the orientation. Premium Charge/Sync Cable’s reversible USB connector works in any full-sized USB port regardless of how it’s plugged in, making it the easiest-to-connect USB plug ever. Through brutal bend and environmental testing, the redesigned cable has proven that it’s built for a longer, more reliable life. The durable braided nylon cable jacket resists kinking and the anodized aluminum housing stabilizes and protects the Lightning connector from physical stresses. Griffin’s new Premium Lightning Cables are available in 5 feet ($29.99) or 10 feet ($39.99) in 3 sleek colors – silver, gold, and space gray – to perfectly coordinate with the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Griffin Delivers its Unmatched Protection for the New Samsung Galaxy S6

Griffin Technology announced its lineup for the new Samsung Galaxy S6. Griffin is there to protect Galaxy S6 through everyday life as users take more selfies, watch movies longer and listen to their favorite music with Samsung’s newest device. The lineup is Griffin’s most protective case, Survivor All-Terrain, which is designed and rigorously tested to guard against whatever the day has in store. Built from the inside out to meet or exceed military standards, Survivor All-Terrain protects Galaxy S6 from extreme conditions including 6.6 foot drops, dust, sand, rain, impacts, vibration, and a host of other environmental factors. Its 4 layers of protection start with a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame clad in shock-absorbing silicone. A built-in screen protector snaps on to seal the phone’s touchscreen from the outside environment, while hinged plugs seal the dock connector, headphone port, power button and volume controls when not in use. To make it easy to carry, Survivor All-Terrain comes equipped with a heavy-duty rotating belt clip. Survivor All-Terrain for Samsung Galaxy S6 will be available in May in Black, Black/Blue and Pink/White for $49.99. For users who want protection without bulk, Survivor Core’s one-piece hybrid design combines minimalist good looks with 6.6 foot drop protection, and fits easily into pocket or purse. Its shatter-resistant polycarbonate shell protects the back of Galaxy S6, and TPE surrounds the sides and corners of the phone to protect from chips, nicks and scratches. Survivor Core is custom molded for a precise fit, with a port for the Galaxy S6’s back camera and open ports for easy access to connectors and controls. Survivor Core for Samsung Galaxy S6 is now available in Black/Clear, Purple/Clear and Purple/Purple for $29.99. Griffin’s Reveal is an ultra-thin case with a sleek design that lets the beauty of the Galaxy S6 shine through even as it provides 3 foot drop protection. A little over a millimeter in thickness, Reveal's one-piece polycarbonate shell is bonded to slim rubber edges that cushion and grip the Galaxy S6, while allowing access to screen, controls and ports. Reveal for Samsung Galaxy S6 is now available in Black, Clear and White for $24.99. Reveal for Samsung Galaxy S6 in Pink will be available in May for $24.99.
