Griffin PowerJolt for iPod
Griffin today announced a new, updated PowerJolt Auto Charger and Power Adapter for iPod. The company said that the PowerJolt has been redesigned for ease of use, and its new stylish black industrial design that "complements any auto's interior." The PowerJolt charges an iPod, while allowing users to listen to their music library. It plugs into any available 12V accessory port or cigarette lighter socket and offers a convenient status LED that changes color to indicate whether the iPod is charging or fully charged. In addition, the PowerJolt protects the iPod with a replaceable fuse. It ships with a detachable, high quality 48-inch USB to Dock Connector cable that can be used for normal syncing and docking operations with your computer as well as a 48-inch USB to mini-USB cable for use with Griffin iTrip and iTrip nano. The $20 package, available now, also includes a free LE version of Griffin's exclusive iFill software that fills the iPod with music from MP3 streams such as the free Internet radio stations.
