iTurbo portable iPod charger

MP3 players

Another device to extend your iPod’s battery life, but the iTurbo portable iPod charger has the benefits of being both small and reasonably priced.

It actually looks like a breathalyser (not that I’ve seen one of those close up), but works using a single AA battery to keep your player going. The device, which is available in black or white to match your player, includes a USB charging tip and is compatible with the iPod, iPod nano and fifth-generation iPod video.

The amount of playing time supplied by the portable charger depends on the iPod you have, but a nano can run for up to 9 hours after being charged by the iTurbo. And to preserve the spare power, there’s an on/off switch on the charger.

It will be available to buy online later this month, priced between $29.99 – $34.99.
