Inside the Griffin PowerDock 5: Small, Sleek, and Very Useful
The PowerDock 5 comes with a series of USB ports.

Griffin is pricing the PowerBlock adaptor at $30 and the PowerJolt car charger at $25. This is not the first foray into multiple device chargers that griffin has created, but it is the first 5-charger dock that the company has put out.
