Can you sync the ipod touch to the computer but use the Griffin PowerBlock battery at the same time?

I have an ipod touch 2nd generation, the battery is damaged some how. It works but won't stay on for more then 2 minutes. I took it into apple and they said they can't fix it. will this product work with this problem?

    No, the battery connects through the dock connector so there is no way to connect the sync cable with it attached. Additionally, on iPod touch and nano models where the headphone port is next to the dock connector, the headphones cannot be used while the iPod is charging from the battery as it is wide enough to block the headphone port.
