Scosche Lightning Cable Charging Adapters Now Available
As previewed back in November, Scosche has released its lineup of third-party Lightning car and home chargers, including the first official retractable Lightning cable on the market.
The lineup includes both 12W ($34.99) and 5W ($29.99) wall chargers, as well as 12W ($29.99) and 5W ($24.99) coiled car chargers. The 5W models are designed to charge the iPhone and iPod touch only, but are $5 cheaper. The 3 foot retractable Lightning-to-USB cable is available for $24.99.
Scosche had previously announced "Pro" models that included convertible micro-USB and Lightning tips. The company tells MacRumors that these models have been cancelled, but didn't say why.
The chargers and cables are available at Scosche.com as well as AT&T, Wal-Mart and a number of other Apple Premium Retailers.

They are pretty ugly and cheap looking for the price. But at least we're starting to get more third party lightning stuff...

I got the car charger in the mail yesterday. The connector tip is bigger than the apple one but smaller than the griffin, belkin and ATT ones. It didnt fit in 2 out of 3 cases that I own. Will probably return it

I bet they canned the convertible ones for durability: I have a convertible USB cord and it's neat, but seems like it would break in time. Charging is something you do hundreds of times a year; lots of wear and tear.
