Indoors, outdoors

This week's roundup of new iOS accessories includes batteries, speakers, handsets, cables...lots of gear to help you get more out of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Anker

The $100 Astro 2 is a double-USB-port battery pack designed to revive your juiceless iOS device. The 9,000mAh battery can recharge an iPhone four to five times before requiring a recharge of its own. The Astro 2 comes in any color you desire, so long as it’s black.

CableJive

The $35 DockBoss air provides a wireless connection between your new Lightning-connector iOS device and your old, 30-pin-dock-connector speaker dock that, connector aside, still has lots of life left in it. The DockBoss Air has a range of 33 feet, letting you wander widely and still get great Bluetooth-connected sound.

iPro Lens

The $229 iPro Lens System Series 2 is a kit that features an assortment of professional-level lenses to pair with your iPhone’s camera. The kit includes macro, wide-angle, super-wide, fisheye, and telescopic lenses. Each mounts easily to the accompanying iPhone case, helping you to take better photos.

iLuv

The $50 Syren (pictured) is a portable Bluetooth speaker available in five colors, and is just one of iLuv’s new iOS accessories this fall. Also hitting the market are the $45 Atelier Clutch for carrying your iPhone 5, and the ReF series of fashion headphones compatible with iPhones and iPads.

Mophie

This battery vendor has updated its $80 Juice Pack Helium—an ultrathin battery case for the iPhone 5—with a range of new colors. It still packs a 1,500mAh battery that adds 80 percent to your phone’s life.

Outdoor Tech

The $50 Buckshot is yet another portable Bluetooth speaker, but with a twist: It’s rugged, thanks to a rubberized exterior pitched for use by “outdoorsmen.” Since nothing helps a hunter more than rocking some sweet Metallica tunes while waiting patiently for a deer to appear.

Pyle Audio

Pyle Audio’s $65 SurfSound-Talk is a waterproof, Bluetooth handset that keeps you connected to your iPhone when you’re by the pool—even if you’d rather not have your iPhone itself by the pool. The handset also works as a wireless speaker for music streaming, and it offers eight hours of use on a single charge.

Qmadix

The Travel Charger with Lightning connector provides 12 watts of charging power, and sports collapsible prongs and a 6-foot cord. It’s already on the Qmadix website, but the company hasn’t yet said how much the device costs, nor when it will ship.

USBFever

The $13 iPhone 5 to iPad 3 / iPad 2 / iPad 1 Netlink / OTG Cable is made for exporting pics from a Lightning-connector-equipped iPhone 5 to a 30-pin-dock-connector iPad. Just plug in at both ends, and you’re ready to go; no additional software is needed.
