, a dock and charger combo unit designed for use in autos. TuneFlex's flexible steel neck adjusts to any angle, and its cradle grips the Nano. It also rotates to stay upright, allowing the Nano to be easily readable in any position. Griffin's TuneFlex plugs into any 12-volt accessory outlet to power and charge Apple's iPod. A light at the base of TuneFlex's neck shows power status, while the TuneFlex's charging circuitry is equipped with a fuse to keep your iPod safe. In addition, it features a built-in 1/8-inch stereo line-out audio jack that lets you attach cassette adapters or cables from Apple's Nano to a stereo as well as includes a pass-through dock connector that lets you use digital devices, such as Griffin's iTrip FM transmitter, AirClick remote, SmartDeck cassette adapter, or others.
