Bosch unveils iPod dock
Bosch Power Tools and Accessories today unveiled its Power Box Dock Accessory for iPod, an iPod dock designed to work with its Power Box Advanced jobsite radio/CD/iPod player and power center. Designed specifically for Apple's iPod, the new dock plugs directly into the Power Box's 12-volt auxiliary outlet and 3.5-millimeter input jack to play music or charge the iPod without extra wires or plugs. The dock completely encases any one of five iPod models, utilizing proprietary adaptors to accommodate for the various sizes available on the market today. The Dock accessory is priced at $50, while the Power Box Advanced ships for $180.
A weather- and dust-resistant encasing protects the iPod from the elements, while also guarding against disruption or movement.
Bosch's Dock for iPod accessory works with third- and fourth-generation iPod (20GB/60GB models) featuring click/touchwheel and button controls, as well as iPod mini, iPod photo (30GB/60GB models), and iPod nano.
