iPod power adapters ship

Griffin Technology has unveiled two power & charge travel solutions for iPod. The PowerBlock Travel is a kit that includes Griffin's PowerBlock AC power adapter with numerous types of AC wall plugs, and features "twist and lock" adapters along with a new sleek black look. The PowerBlock converts AC voltage from 100-volts to 240-volts without spikes or surges, according to the company, while a built-in Type A USB socket enables the PowerBlock to work with any USB-rechargeable device. iPod owners can use a detachable dock connector to charge the portable player, while first-generation iPod shuffles are chargeable via the USB port. Griffin's PowerBlock Travel is shipping for $35, and the PowerDuo Travel is available for $40.

The PowerDuo Travel bundles PowerBlock and all of the travel adapters mentioned above, as well as Griffin's PowerJolt vehicle charger. PowerJolt plugs into the 12-volt cigarette lighter or accessory port, and includes a replaceable fuse to protect equipment from spikes or surges while charging. The 7-piece PowerDuo set includes PowerBlock, PowerJolt, a dock connector cable, and four AC travel adapters.
