Butterfly iPod dock
Vestalife has released the Butterfly, an iPod speaker dock that allows users to listen to their music while charging the device. The Butterfly consists of two speakers at the top, an iPod docking station in the middle which holds most iPod models, LED volume indicators, and an auxiliary-in jack that allows users to connect non-docking iPods, CD players, or other MP3 devices. Also included in the Butterfly is a USB port that enables synchronizing with a computer.
Other features of the Butterfly provide users with an automatic shut-off to help save batteries as well as an AV output jack. The dock is capable of supporting all docking iPods from 2004 or later. Four AA batteries power device away from a wall outlet. Butterfly can be purchased from the Vestashop website and is priced at $80.
