myPower external iPod battery

I love my iPod so much that I feel a little guilty criticizing it, but I can't hide it anymore: the battery life really really disappoints me. Apple says the 4G iPods have "up to 12 hours" of playback time on one charge but I think in reality it's less than half that. You can practically see the little battery indicator slide down with each song.

myPower, an external iPod battery by Tekkeon, more than triples the battery time by adding 32 hours of playback in a 5.6 oz power dock. The myPower uses the iPod's charger cables so you don't have to carry additional adapters. When the myPower is connected to your PC for charging, the docked iPod is also connected to your PC so you can manage playlists, download or listen to music. There's also a line-out for connecting the myPower to speakers. Also a belt clip for attaching the whole nearly 10 oz. package to your pants. I don't know if I'd wear this (I'm not quite that geeky) but I'd love to have it for my car or for long plane rides.

Available now at Tekkeon for $90. Seen on Japan Today.
