Each ZAP Pack uses a smart microprocessor control system that can power a variety of mobile electronic devices including handheld PCs, digital cameras, cellular phones, audio, DVD, compact disk players, video cameras, laptops, and more. Several models also charge DC electronics from 4.0 to 19.0 volts through either a DC or USB port. The iZAP battery pack is priced at $50 for iPod nano, $60 for iPod mini, and $60 for iPod video. The D-14 Universal Charger can power iPod shuffle players, and is priced at $60.
