Get the most from your Blaze EZ Multiplayer when you add the Premium Option Pack (POP)! The is not included and is a separate item.
Premium Option Pack
The Premium Option Pack includes an OCR stand, cradle, spare battery pack, and spare AC adapter.
The OCR stand helps you capture images of printed material more accurately, thus vastly increasing the quality of the recognition results. The OCR stand provides a guide on which to place printed materials, and a tray for the Blaze EZ which centers the camera at the correct height and position for a standard page of text.
Turn your portable player in to a desktop and back again simply by inserting it and removing it from the cradle.
The cradle charges both the Blaze EZ and a spare battery separately or simultaneously. It also contains an audio jack for connecting External speakers.
Spare Battery and AC Adapter
Keep one adapter at work and one at home, or use one with the cradle and the other with the unit itself. Use the spare battery to double your playing time on the go.
*** Note: The Premium Option Pack must be purchased separately, or in addition to the Blaze EZ. These items are not included in the basic package. Also, while each of the items in the Option Pack can be purchased individually, we highly encourage purchasing the Premium Option Pack as a whole as it is much more cost effective.
