The original iHome iPod clock radio was well received by our review team a few months back, so we’re quite looking forward to getting a closer look at the iHome iH26 portable iPod alarm clock – which is similar, but much smaller.
Indeed, the iH26 retains many of the features of the iH5, including wake and sleep to iPod settings, adjustable display brightness, remote control and the ability to charge your iPod while docked. But as it’s designed as a portable device, the iH26 also features fold down speakers and a lightweight protective carry case with handle and travel lock feature that maintains settings and keeps the unit from powering on in transit.
The iH26 also features a Sure Alarm battery backup to guard against power failures, an aux/MP3 line-in jack with patch cord for other MP3 players and audio devices and a full function remote control. It wil lbe available in the coming weeks, priced at £69.99.
