HMS Daring Offers Charging Capabilities

Monday, February 06, 2006
The Royal Navy has launched a new warship that will offer its crew an iPod charging point, a CD player, and internet access in every cabin. The HMS Daring is the first of six Type 45 Destroyers that come with a $1 billion price tag. The 150-meter long vessels will come into service in 2009. At 7350 ton, the 14 deck warship is capable of tracing and destroying hostile objects as small a cricket ball traveling at three times the speed of sound several hundred miles away. Inside, the ship offers each cabin an array of technological capabilities such as the iPod charger and five radio channels dedicated to the ship.
