    Default The POP Charging Station Lives On After Apple Changes Accessories Policy


    Earlier this week the status of the Kickstarter-funded POP charging station was in flux, but the thought-to-be doomed accessory has new life.

    The POP charger was in fact icanceled by it’s creator Jamie Siminoff after Apple refused to approve his device. The multi-device charger raised $130,170 on Kickstarter, and Siminoff's decision to cancel the project meant issuing refunds to those who donated to make the device a reality. However, the firestorm of media coverage apparently helped convince Apple to do a complete 180 against their decision.

    The hang-up was Apple’s accessory policy that forbid any device from having both a Lightning connector and a 30-pin connector on the same device. Apple changed the policy after the extensive media coverage, thereby legitimizing Siminoff’s creation. After initially saying the project was still off despite Apple's concessions, Siminoff has decided to continue with the production of the POP charger.

    Wow this is great news !!

    I purchased an iExpander from kickstarter and can't wait to receive it !! check it out for yourself (copy and paste below link to your browser) Has a 30pin connector and a lighting connector, improves battery life 2x, improve low light images, will be able to expand memory by using a sd card. I also purchased Capta on kickstarter and a few other gadgets I love kickstarter !! When you pledge early and it funds, you get the item at the lower price and before it hits the market ;D

    So happy for Jaime Siminoff !! ^5

    It also cures cancer while washing the dishes. Anything that claims to increase battery life etc is bogus.
