Company sources said that iFresh is an Apple (News - Alert) approved accessory suitable for use with the iPhone, iPod and iPod touch. It plugs directly into the 30-pin connector on the device and provides instant power while recharging the device battery.
Also the iFresh features a powerful 2200 mAh battery which can charge to full battery in less than two hours. The product is compatible with iPod, iPod touch, iPhone 3, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and iPad devices.
The device comes with a patented retractor clip which enables the easy removal of the iFresh from the unit after charging is complete, revealed officials.

The iFresh can be drained and recharged 500 times. Also, it recharges through an included retractable USB cable that connects to any Mac or PC besides being suitable with any car charger that has a USB port.
Officials added that the iFresh benefits all iPhone and iTouch users who travel a lot and need to charge their phones more often to keep them always connected. This eliminates the need to look for a power source to recharge their devices.
