Congratulations, Belkin — you’re the first third-party manufacturer to release official products for Apple’s (AAPL) Lightning connector port! Belkin on Monday released two Lightning-related products: A Lightning car charger to help iPhone fans keep their devices charged while driving and charge-and-sync dock that keeps the iPhone charged at home. Both products can be pre-ordered now for $29.99 each and are slated to ship in mid-November. Apple this month has scheduled a special seminar for third-party manufacturers that want to make Lightning-compatible products and more Lightning accessories will hit the market later this month after Apple officially certifies more OEMs.
