Product Description

Product Description

Hit the road Jack! And don't you come back to recharge your iPod. Because this convenient Griffin auto charger lets you play your iPod on the road while giving it a constant charge whether you're playing music or in standby mode. The PowerPod is compatible with original FireWire iPods and newer dockable iPods. Pops easily into your vehicle's lighter. Includes a 4' FireWire cable with dock connection.

Amazon.com

Music fans love to take their iPods on the road, but the road offers one major problem--no charging outlets. Enter the Griffin PowerPod auto charger, which plugs into your car's cigarette lighter to provide a consistent power source. The charger powers the iPod whether it's playing music or in standby mode, so users don't have to suffer through any charging downtime. It's also intended to complement the iPod's sleek, modern design, with a dimpled white and grey body. The PowerPod comes with a 4-foot FireWire cable that connects to your iPod's dock connector for charging. Owners of the original 1G and 2G iPods can instead connect the default FireWire cables that came with their models.

Features and Performance
iPod owners will warm up to the PowerPod in a manner of seconds. It's ready to use right out of the box--just plug in the FireWire cable and start charging. A small red LED light indicates when the unit is working, as does the iPod's charging icon in the upper right corner. During testing, the PowerPod refreshed about an hour's worth of playtime in a few minutes while music was playing. Owners of other iPod auto accessories such as FM transmitters--which draw their power from the iPod's battery--will find the PowerPod particularly valuable, as it keeps their iPods juiced up over long road trips.

Simple and efficient, the PowerPod is a must for iPod-equipped road trippers. --Rivers Janssen

Customer Reviews

The product feels solid and works fine too.
Jaz
This adapter caused line noise while it was plugged in, defeating the purpose of listening while charging since the line noise was very noticible.

I own a 2nd generation mini and this works very well with the same.

I'm not someone that spends all day on the road, but I do take enough trips and even use my iPod around town. Ipod car chargers can incredibly overpriced as can a simple firewire cable. So It's a bargin to get not only a car charger, but an extra firewire cable, so I can leave one plugged into my Mac all the time.

Looking for a car charger, I noticed this one had a removable FireWire cable - which meant I could use any other cable I want. Now that I've upgraded to the new iPod (I got a new 15 GB) I was suprised to discover that it works with the new iPods too. I just use the dock-to-FireWire cable that comes with the new iPod and it works perfectly. Even IF I buy an extra dock cable, it's still less than the Belkin charger at 40 bucks. Plus I can use it interchangeably with my wife's iPod (my old one ;).
All in all, the PowerPod is a great value, flexable and future-proof. You can't ask for much more. I don't hesitate recommending this iPod charger to anyone.

This is my second (and counting) Griffin accessory for my iPod mini. First I bought the iTrip transmitter, and then I picked up this dandy little gadget since I was using my mini so much more and kept forgetting to plug it in at night. I like that the wire disconnects from the power unit to hook up to the USB port on my computer to update my mini. It is sooooooooo easy to use and helps since I travel a lot for hockey. Definitely a bargain at twice the price.

I've had this product for about a month now and have had no noise or interference with my iPod mini. It charges while it plays, and I have had it plugged in w/o the car running (no longer than 1hr), and the car battery didn't die. I use it with the Griffin iTrip with great results. I used it on an 8hr drive from IL to MI and was very pleased. I will be making the same trip home and back to school again soon and suggest this product to anyone who makes road trips.

Looking at the simple plug in it looks straight forward... and that's sort of the problem. Firewire cables are sort of stiff and stick straight out of the plug. I wish it had a swivel end or was at a 45 degree angle so I didn't have this firewire plug sticking straight out and getting in the way while I drive. The product itself works great. Has a green LED that lights up when connected. It could be designed a tad better though.

This was a great buy. It works very well and does everything the manufacturer said it was supposed to do. I want my products to work efficiently and effectively and this auto charger does both so I highly reccomend it.

I wanted a cheap charger. This comes in a black box which now holds all of my Video iPod car aceessories. It works well. I've had no problems at all.

This product was reasonably priced and almost what I expected. I was looking for an auto power adapter that would power my older iPod. That is I expected an adapter that had a firewire connector to my older iPod. What I got was an adapter that had a firewire connector but came with a cable that had a newer edition iPod connector. Fortunately I had a firewire to firewire cable that could be used with the base plug so it worked out OK. I just wish that the description identified what cable came with the power adapter.
