    Short and Sweet: AWESOME, 6 years in the making.

    • Written by from Linden

    I purchased this new in box elsewhere just last week to expand the battery life of my iPod shuffle 1st-gen, also coming from said "elsewhere". After having some problems at first with the iPod going nuts when I plugged it in (orange/green blinking, firmware corruption not caused by the accessory was the cause) it was very nice! the added neck lanyard makes this a very stylish item. Even going around my college campus, people are asking me where I got this little gem.

    If you have one of these almost-vintage music sticks, I suggest you definitely get one of these while Apple still has them in stock.

    Keep your shuffle alive forever...

    • Written by from Burnaby

    I bought my iPod shuffle when they first came out (Jan 2005) and the internal battery no longer holds a charge. Got the external battery pack so I can continue using my shuffle. Works with NiMH AAA's. Only problem is you have to unplug and replug the shuffle before turning on the shuffle and it resets to the start of the playlist instead of picking up where you left off. This is because a working internal battery is needed to remember its previous state. Not perfect but at least I can still use my shuffle forever.

    Extend the life of your shuffle

    • Written by from Roslindale

    This is great for two things. First, when you don't know the next time you'll be near a computer or wall outlet for charging, just pop in some fresh batteries and you're good to go.
    Second, the internal battery is not going to last forever so you don't have to throw the shuffle away when it finally goes. Never had a problem with mine. I'd recommend recharable AAA's to keep costs down.

    The best accessory for iPod

    • Written by from Bay City

    I simply love it! The battery pack provides about 20 hours of use from the Shuffle. I have only managed to drain the battery in my Shuffle once so far but I had this with me so the music went on uninterrupted. Pay no attention to the people that say it will damage your iPod Shuffle- it has the same small ball-bearing clips inside as the USB cap does. Putting this on and taking it off of your Shuffle is HARMLESS. The ONLY thing that could make this better would be if it were $15 instead of $29.

    the Second Best Thing Since the Invention of the Ipod

    • Written by

    The second best thing since the invention of the iPod. The best thing is the Shuffle Sport Case. The external battery pack is a very close second. Nothing beats the convenience of being able to use AAA batteries. If you run out of juice on the road, you can pick up AAAs just about anywhere. I use 15 minute rechargeable batteries for quick recharges at home and work. Unlike other battery packs, this one is beautifully designed and has a very solid construction of rock-like plastic. This excellent product deserves to bear the Apple logo which is embossed on its back.

    Works for me.

    • Written by from Cooperstown

    I purchased this battery pack for use with an ipod shuffle and later decided to upgrade to the Nano. I had this laying around and figured that if it had a usb plug it would work for the Nano too. Yup. Obviously, the fit isn't the same as the shuffle because it just plugs right in and the charger is the lanyard, but if you don't mind the extra cords to get some extra power, seems to work just fine.

    Awesome for Trip!

    • Written by

    This upcoming summer I have an educational trip for china planned thanks to People to People, and this is the perfect thing to take with me for bus rides and stuff. My friend has this product and highly recommends it! During my trip to china I won't have access to a computer, and the electricy plugs are different there so I'd need to buy a converter or bring a laptop (which I don't have) to be able to charge! But not now, thanks to this awesome little invention I'll only have to take some batteries with me and I'll be able to take my Ipod with me. Thanks Apple!

    Power on the fireline

    • Written by from Ennis

    I listen to music as I go to sleep and tend to fall asleep before I turn off my ipod killing the internal battery in the process. At home that's no big deal, but when out fighting forest fires, I usually don't have any power source handy. Now with my battery pack, all I have to do is bring along some extra AAAs. the lanyard is kind of useless since the extra weight of the battery pack makes it bulky around the neck.

    This is one of the best assessories For an MP3 player I have ever had the pleasure to use. Since I am confind to a wheel chair It allows me to listen for much longer than the internal battery ever could.
