As the yet-to-be-announced release date for the next Apple phone approaches, iPhone accessories makers are preparing to reveal products that have been in the works leading up to the day the device hits retail stores.
Hali-Power, a Chinese manufacturer licensed to create Apple-geared products, is releasing six new battery-related accessories for the iPad 2 and iPhone 5 under the MiLi Power brand. The company's current products include the Power Prince, a 5,000 mAh battery charging device that fits Apple products as well as other smartphones, tablets, computers and electronic devices. MiLi also offers innovative products such as its Pocketpal, designed to replace bulky power cords with a thumb-sized USB to wall outlet connection.
The latest releases from the company will be displayed at the China Sourcing Fair in mid-October, which is the approximate time of the iPhone 5 release according to the latest media reports.
"This is one of the biggest shows in Asia and we’ve pulled out all the stops," announced Hali-Power CEO Harry Zhu. "We have very strong demand from customers for these products. We expect to have these products released soon as we receive the certifications from Apple."
