Aluratek Mini Surge Dual USB Charging Station

Posted in Chargers by Conner Flynn on June 6th, 2011

The alluring folks at Aluratek have a new surge protector that will fit into your outlet and won’t block the outlet below it. You gotta love that. It solves a common problem we have all shared. The device will protect your hardware from surges and it will allow you to directly connect some of the USB charging gear using the factory cables rather than having to plug in a USB adapter.

It goes by the name AUCS05F Mini Surge Dual USB Charging Station and it hangs from the outlet rather than having a cord and a rectangular surge strip like most protectors. There’s a three-prong AC outlet on the front and then one more on each side for three outlets in one.

Aluratek’s Bump wireless speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 21st, 2010

One thing that we all want are speakers. Without the wires. Aluratek has heard our collective plea and launched three new wireless audio products called Bump. Oddly there’s a wired model among them, but whatever. There’s the $49.99 AMS01F, which is a boombox that plays music from SD cards, line-in, or FM and delivers six hours on a charge.

Next up is the $79.99 AUWS01F which uses a signal sent from a 2.4GHz USB dongle in your PC or Mac to play tunes from your machine. Next is the $99.99 AWS01F, which is the AMS01F boombox with the addition of a separate wireless speaker.

Aluratek's $179 Libre eBook readerThe Libre eBook Reader PRO doesn’t have an e-Ink display, instead it has a monochrome reflective light LCD with a 2GB SD card. That sets it apart from the other recent eBook readers. And it’s only $179. The reader even boasts 24 hours of continuous use and supports MP3 and photos.

It’s only 5 inches and can handle ePub, PDF, TXT, Mobi, PRC and RTF formats. That makes it handy for those of you who download books from “non-official” sources. If you don’t download, the Libre comes with 100 “free” books as well.

Aluratek Internet Radio Jukebox

Aluratek announced the other day it has a new USB flash drive like device which acts as a portable Internet radio of sorts. It is called the Internet Radio Jukebox and you’ll find it pricing around $40.

The Aluratek Internet Radio Jukebox is designed to let you have a plug-n-play experience in which you have a user interface providing access to over 13,000 Internet radio stations. This Internet Explorer interface pops up after you plug the Jukebox into a USB port, letting you search for audio programming via the top ten channels by region, by genre, by specific artists, or by songs, as well as a host of other custom search criteria.

Aluratek external hard drive encrypts data and uses RFID

Aluratek Tornado Plus External Hard Drive with RFIDExternal hard drives are a great way to protect important data stored on your computer in the event of a computer crash. The bad part about external storage is that the drives are typically small and easy to steal. That means if the data on the drive is sensitive, you might want to encrypt the data.

The catch with encrypting data is that the data is only as safe as your password. Aluratek has introduced a new Tornado plus external hard drive that features RFID keys. The drive can’t be accessed and the data stored on the drive won’t be unencrypted without first swiping one of the two included RFID keys.
