Nashville, TN (PRUnderground) April 2nd, 2015

Today, KickShark announces its new HydraDapt brand iPhone cable and car charger for the Apple MacBook’s new USB-C port. The two products, in development over the past year, are available on KickStarter, and will ship to customers on April 23rd.

“These are really necessary products for anybody getting the new MacBook,” said Kristen Cales, Marketing Director for KickShark, “The iPhone can be synced wirelessly. But, with a new Mac or new OSX installation, or if the iPhone is repaired or reset for any reason, a cable must be used to establish the wireless syncing feature. Plus, a lot of people just like the speed and convenience of plugging in their iPhone or iPad. Ours is the only available cable for this purpose.” Ms. Cales added, “The new USB-C car charger is an example of the new USB Power Distribution specification at work, with its active device sensing and power regulation circuitry. It is also the only car charger out here for the new MacBook.”

The iPhone cable will retail for $29, but is available at an early bird price on Kickstarter of $19, including USA shipping. The MacBook car charger will retail for $39, and has an early bird Kickstarter price of $29, including USA shipping. International orders are being accepted with an added shipping fee.

The company explains that they have a major Kickstarter campaign coming on April 15th for their full line of new USB-C products, including the world’s first full desktop hub, the HydraDock. Said Cales, “Because these two products were ready for mass production ahead of the MacBook’s shipping date, we chose to launch a quick, two week Kickstarter campaign to get them to the first MacBook owners who will really need them.”

HydraDapt and HydraDock are brands of KickShark, Inc., a technology accelerator program in Nashville, Tennessee. The HydraDapt products can be seen on Kickstarter or the HydraDapt web site. KickShark can be found at
