Battery pack for iPod
Newer Technology (NewerTech) today introduced the slim NuPower ViDEO+ rechargeable battery pack for Apple's video iPod. The accessory attaches to the iPod, significantly extending the run-time to 80 hours of music playback or 16 hours of video viewing. The NuPower ViDEO+ also doubles as a portable charger that delivers up to three charges to the iPod video's internal battery. NewerTech's new accessory includes the battery pack, stand, docking station, and a belt clip to tote the extra battery power alongside an iPod. The NuPower ViDEO+ is rechargeable via an iPod charging cable that ships included with all video iPods. The battery pack fits on the back of the iPod, and comes with a spacer pad to ensure a snug fit on 30GB video iPod models. The battery extension for video iPod is priced at $50.
