Belkin is releasing a ton of new Axim accessories
All of these goodies are now available from Belkin.com and seem reasonably priced. Here’s a rundown of what they have added to the mix:
The Belkin 9V Emergency Power Adapter (F8D0100 ESP $9.99), an ideal solution for the user on the road who is without access to a power source, uses a 9V alkaline battery (not included) to power the Axim X5. This Adapter provides enough power to supply up to 60 minutes of use from a single 9-volt battery.
The Belkin Car Charger (F8D0001 ESP $19.99) allows users to operate their Axim handheld while it is charging. The Charger plugs directly into a car’s standard lighter/power socket, providing power for users’ X5 handheld as they travel, and works with any 12V or 24V input power source.
The Belkin USB Sync Charger with USB-CLA (F8D1000 ESP $19.99) and USB Sync Charger (F8D1001 ESP $14.99) provide rapid synchronization between a user’s Axim X5 and PC while charging through any powered USB port, all without a bulky cradle. The Belkin USB Sync Charger with USB-CLA includes a USB cigarette lighter adapter that converts the Sync Charger into an auto charger.
The Belkin Compact AC Travel Charger (F8D0002 ESP $19.99) allows users to charge their handheld from a 110-volt AC outlet. Users can access their Axim handheld while charging or leave it off to charge the battery even faster. This Charger keeps AC outlets free with its right-angle plug design.
The Belkin Stylus 4-Pack (F8D1300 ESP $9.99) contains four high-quality stylus instruments in durable-construction ABS composite plastic. These replacement styli aid in simple navigation of a user’s Axim X5.
The Belkin ClearScreen Overlays (F8D1700 ESP $16.99) protect the Axim X5’s most fragile component the screen. Each razor-thin sheet (0.005″ thick) reduces glare and affords a user’s stylus with a smoother navigating surface while providing a tough layer of protection. They feature a low-tack adhesive for easy, safe removal, which leaves no residue on the X5’s screen. The kit includes 12 overlays, a cleaning cloth, and an applicator card.
Dell Axim X5 users can carry and protect their handheld in a variety of fine-leather cases. The Belkin Executive Leather Wallet Case (F8D1400 ESP $19.99) and Belkin Executive Zippered Leather Wallet Case (F8D1402 ESP $29.99) offer excellent protection and a host of features that enhance the handheld.
The Axim X5 slips securely into the form-fitting pocket, while the Case provides ample space to store four business or credit cards and memory Storage cards. Made of soft-yet-durable calfskin, both allow easy access to all buttons and connectors through cutouts, while an ID window and a multipurpose pocket add the finishing touches.
Lastly, the Belkin Leather Flip Case (F8D1401 ESP $24.99), crafted from luxurious lambskin, features an integrated detachable swivel belt clip, slots for two business or credit cards, four specially designed media slots for Secure Digital (SD) cards, and a multipurpose pocket.
