The PowerJolt enables you to plug any Dock Connector-equipped iPod or iPod shuffle into your automobile’s cigarette lighter or 12-volt accessory jack to top off its battery. It works whether the iPod is playing music or in standby mode. A status LED shows you when your iPod is connected, charging and fully charged, and a replaceable fuse keep’s the iPod’s electronics protected from overcharging and power surges.
The PowerJolt includes a 48-inch USB to Dock COnnector cable. It also includes a 48-inch USB to Mini USB cable, to make it work with Griffin’s iTrip and iTrip nano FM transmitters.
Also included with the PowerJolt is iFill LE, a special free version of Griffin’s iFill software, which streams MP3 files from Internet radio stations directly to your iPod, making it possible for you to fill your iPod with fresh music without cluttering up your hard drive.
