If you’re concerned about keeping your iPod charged when you’re away from the home or the office, Dr. Bott has come up with a solution — the
Auto Charger for iPod. The new device connects to the standard 12 volt DC cigarette lighter or accessory jack found in any car and provides power to the FireWire port of the iPod, keeping the unit fully charged when you’re on the road.
The unit comes equipped with an LED that indicates power status and it also incorporates a replaceable fuse to protect the iPod from any power surges or overloads (you simply twist the tip of the cigarette lighter plug to access the fuse). The Auto Charger for iPod delivers 12W maximum to the iPod when it’s hooked up.
Dr. Bott indicates that the unit is now shipping. The Auto Charger for iPod retails for US$24.95.
