Corr-Tech has selected the CAP-XX supercapacitor-enabled BriteFlash architecture to power the high-performance LED flash in its new iExpander accessories for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5. Additionally, the iPhone 5 version of the iExpander features the original 30-pin connector, plus a Lightning port, so users can charge from and dock to the previous-generation iPhone/iPod accessories, so ignored by Apple. At the heart of the iExpander is an ultra-thin CAP-XX HS206 supercapacitor and a powerful LED flash module. The supercapacitor overcomes the limitations of the battery to deliver more power to the LEDs, extend the length of the flash pulse, and increase the total light energy emitted by the flash. The result is crisp photographs and clear videos, even in low light. The iExpander also includes a microSD card slot and a second battery, increasing both the memory capacity and battery life of the iPhone, and is packaged in a sleek, graphite-reinforced nylon case which adds just 6.3mm to the thickness of the phone. Production is to start in November 2012, with the first units shipping to customers before year-end. Corr-Tech CAP-XX Additional iExpander information and sample photos available here
