    External battery pack for iPod shuffle

If you're determined to spend $29 on an iPod shuffle accessory, this one is a more practical purchase than the Dock. Featuring a lanyard looped through the base and shaped a bit like a throne, the External Battery pack houses two AAA batteries (two batteries are included in the box) and extends your shuffle's playtime for up to 20 hours. Those batteries add some heft to the Pack, making the battery/shuffle combo a less-than-ideal workout mate--bounce around too much while wearing the Pack around your neck and you'll quickly grow tired of the thumping your chest takes.--Christopher Breen
