Belkin TunePower review
IPods don’t have removable batteries, so after a year or two of constant use they can get tired. Even from new, a battery may not last the length of a long-haul flight. What you need is a secondary battery that’s as sleek and elegant as the iPod itself.
Belkin’s TunePower not only boosted our 4GB iPod mini’s battery life from six to 14 hours (enough for a long-haul flight and then some), but it didn’t add much bulk either. There’s a piggy-back holster making the whole thing compact at 54 x 27 x 110mm (WDH) for the iPod mini and 64 x 32 x 121mm (WDH) for its 30GB big brother.
At £50, the Belkin is a touch pricey, but it’s compatible with third- and fourth-generation hard disk-based iPods. Best of all, the TunePower will recharge both itself and your iPod’s battery with its single FireWire-based cable.
