NEW dockBoss air V2 Available Now!

blog-v2Last November we introduced a new addition to our dockBoss line of accessories that quickly became one of our most popular products. The dockBoss air has already helped thousands of people turn their old iPod speaker docks into great sounding, versatile wireless Bluetooth-enabled audio systems, and for that we are both thrilled and grateful. However, that did not make us complacent, and over time we identified some improvements which we thought could make the dockBoss air even better.

Fast forward to today, where that list of desired improvements has culminated in the release of the NEW dockBoss air. We use an updated version of Bluetooth, which has allowed for increased audio quality and volume. We’ve also done away with the old “pairing code” that you used to have to enter to connect. Our new “1-click pairing” feature combined with a better indicator light and audio cues for power and device connection make using the dockBoss air even easier than before. And last but not least, the dockBoss air now supports remote functionality, so you can use your speaker dock’s remote control to play, pause, & skip tracks.

All these new features plus a slick new form-factor means the dockBoss air has been improved in almost every single way. In our own (unshockingly bias) opinion, we think it’s the best wireless Bluetooth adapter on the market. We think you’ll agree, but don’t just take our word for it. Try for yourself and see.

The NEW dockBoss air is available right now at our web-store at cablejive.com, and will be available here on Amazon.com shortly.

dockBoss5: Charge and listen to any phone or tablet on an iPhone or iPod dock


Do you have an old iPod or iPhone speaker dock that seems useless since you upgraded to an iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy, or other mobile device? Ever wish you could hook up your iPad or tablet, charge one device while listening to another, or make it more fun and usable for others at parties? Or maybe you don’t even have a speaker dock yet, and are wondering if you can pick up an old one on the cheap (hint: You Can!)? If you fall under any of those categories, then you might be especially excited by our newest product, dockBoss5:

More info and to purchase: http://www.cablejive.com/products/dockBoss5.html

dockBoss5 is the 5th release in our series of dockBoss adapters designed to make new iOS, Android and other devices compatible with the millions of iPod or iPhone docks that have flooded the market prior to the release of iPhone 5. It turns your old speaker dock into a universal charging and audio station in no time. It’s plug and play, simply connect your USB and audio cables of choice (or use the Micro USB and 1/8″ AUX cables included) and start getting the most out of that great sounding speaker dock you used to love using so much.

dockBoss+ Now Available w/ Female USB & Audio Connectors!

Our dockBoss+ cable has made it possible for thousands of of users connect non-Apple devices to their favorite iPod docks and speaker systems; allowing them to listen to audio AND charge where it was not possible before. Its Micro USB connector is compatible with hundreds of the latest gadgets, but it certainly doesn’t cover everybody. What if you need a longer audio connection? Or even worse, what if your device doesn’t utilize a Micro USB connector?

Starting today, don’t worry about it. Due to popular demand, we’ve added a new version of our hit dockBoss+ cable that provides a female standard USB connector for charging, and a female 3.5mm audio port. And, it’s available right now!

Use any length AUX cable you want to get the audio connection that works for you, and use whichever USB-based power cable that came with your device to charge it. Now, no mater what mobile device you use, you can truly be the boss of your dock!

New and Improved CableJive.com w/ Mobile Checkout Support

If you stopped by CableJive.com today, you may have noticed our new look. It’s not radically different, but we freshened it up visually, and made some great functionality improvements. Other than the subtle design changes, two features make up the real “meat and potatoes” of this update:

First, and most importantly, we’ve added support for mobile devices. Previously, cablejive.com would display on mobile devices like iPads and iPhones just fine, until you wanted to checkout. Mobile checkout was unfortunately not supported on our old website, which wasn’t doing us or our customers any good. Thankfully, the new cablejive.com comes equipped with a fully-functional mobile site & shopping cart. It’s never been easier to get the mobile accessories you need, wherever you are!

Second, if you look at the navigation over to the left of the page, you’ll notice a host of new options to choose from. We’ve reworked our categories to be much more helpful to our customers. Now, you can shop by device, product category, or brand, making it easier to not only find what you’re looking for, but also to clearly see other products that might be useful to you.

If you haven’t seen the new cablejive.com for yourself yet, check it out and tell us what you think! We’re quite confident that our new website should be working just fine, but anything is possible. If you have any issues at all, please let us know via email at service@cablejive.com and we’ll be happy to help.

dualCharge Now Powers iPads!

Word on the street is, the iPad is pretty popular these days. Which is why I’m happy to announce that our dualCharge has been updated for iPad support! Now charge an iPad, or two smaller USB powered electronic devices (iPod, iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc) at the same time with one powerful plug. It’s the perfect solution for all your home-charging needs!

These updated dualCharges are available now.

dualCarCharge Now Updated For iPad Compatibility!

If you need a quality car charger for all your mobile devices and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, we like to think the dualCarCharge to be one of the best options out there. It turns your singular DC power / cigarette lighter port into two female USB ports for your charging pleasure all for under $15 bucks. And I’m happy to announce that it just got even better (or should we say, juicier).

As of today, all our dualCarCharge adapters have been upgraded to provide 2 Amps of power, which is enough output to charge an iPad. This gives you the option to charge one iPad or two less power-consuming devices (iPods, iPhones, Blackberries, Android phones, etc) at a time in your car, all for the same price. Thus making it, dare we say, the perfect car trip companion! Check it out for yourself if you don’t believe us.

dockBoss+ Feeling The Love!

Since announcing the dockBoss+, the reception has been incredible! A ton of the world’s leading technology news sites covered our announcement, and we couldn’t be prouder about the reaction!
