Instant iPod charge
today announced it has added iPod support to its line of Cellboost disposable battery/chargers. The new product will use the same technology as the company's patented Cellboost cell phone battery/chargers to restore power to dead or dying mobile devices instantly and inexpensively--without any need for an electrical outlet or cords. Cellboost for the iPod will offer several hours of additional playback time, according to the company. It is expected to be available in the second quarter of this year along with models for smart phones (palmOne Treo and Danger SideKick), camcorders (Sony, Canon, JVC, etc.), and Nintendo Game Boy (SP/DS).
