Kensington Dock w Battery
Kensington on Monday brought out a unique travel dock for iPhones and iPods. The Charging Dock with Mini Battery has a dock for both the Apple device itself but also a battery pack that attaches to the iPhone when it's in use. Attaching it gives an iPhone as much as 30 hours of extra music, 6 hours of web use or 3 hours of talk time; since both this and the iPhone share the same dock power, the two charge simultaneously and let users have the reserve power without occupying a second USB or power port.
In addition to all varieties of iPhone, the Kensington dock should work with every iPod that uses a Dock Connector and will work with devices even when they're used in a case. Pricing is already set at $70, but pre-orders placed today will start shipping only in late October.
