Belkin Corp. on Tuesday introduced the
Dock Adapter for iPod shuffle, a US$19.99 add-on that enables Apple’s iPod shuffle to to connect to devices that work with Dock Connector-equipped iPods instead. It’s coming in late September.
The Dock Adapter for iPod shuffle lets you use devices that are designed to charge iPods through the dock connector; it also provides pass-through audio via the Dock connector. Belkin only lists compatibility with its own iPod accessory products, including the TuneBase, TuneBase FM, auto Kit, Auto Power Cord, Battery Pack and TunePower. Belkin cautions that the iPod shuffle won’t sync with a Mac or PC using a Dock Connector to FireWire cable; however, power and audio will be compatible.
