For the past weeks I’ve been taking my small “movie breaks” in the car while the wife is doing the weekly grocery trip. Not a big fan of walking around Pick and Save and would rather sit in to watch my favorite film. The downside of this is when I forget to charge my iPod, and I’m left hanging in the middle of my viewing.
I’ve been hunting Amazon and Ebay for an iPod charger or adaptor for my car for the past two months now and, well, I’ve seen stuff BUT wasn’t really sure if it would really work (read as “safe to use” for the iPod and my car). Great that Belkin (a reputable brand) has developed the Micro Auto Charger with Charge Sync Cable. This is really a great idea!
It will be available in early May bundled with a Charge and Sync Cable for iPod and iPhone for $20, or by itself for $15. The Dual Auto Charger features two USB ports, one port running at 1A for fast charging, the other at 500mA, and includes a three-foot charge and sync cable for the iPod and iPhone. It is available now and sells for $30.
