iPhone speaker/charger

China-based OEM manufacturer Better-Power Electric has developed a unique combination speaker and charger for the iPod and iPhone using a 4800mA, 3.7V Lithium-Ion Battery. The company says the device can charge an iPhone in 50-80 minutes and also works with various iPods and other mobile devices via USB. The speaker can play music for more than 12 hours, and iPhone owners can reportedly use it as a speakerphone.

Betterpower says the speaker produces "high quality stereo sound," and comes equipped with a USB-MINI socket that, with the proper software, could allow syncing between a mobile device and a computer. The speaker also works as a mobile power supply for the iPhone, allowing longer use than the conventional battery.

SInce Better-Power is an OEM manufacturer, there's no word when device will be sold directly to consumers in the U-S or Europe or at what price point.

    Dude, it won't sell. The thing is ugly and cheap looking.
    It's got that 70's retro "Darth Vader" look... Doesn't it look like it fell off of Darth Vader's helmet?
    That is fine if that was intended but I doubt that was the look they were going after.

    All it needs is a RadioShack decal on the front and it's done.
