First Looks: Graphic Cling, Waterproof 4Gs, iAirPlay, and More

Some of the newest accessory arrivals at iLounge include:

iPod shuffle

Speck Products Connect & Protect - Click Here for Details

Speck’s Connect & Protect kit includes a SkinTight shuffle case (iLounge rating: B+) and four different USB cap attachments to “connect” to your bag or clothes.


Full-Sized iPods

Graphic Collective Graphic Cling - Click Here for Details

A non-adhesive sticker? Yeah - this attractive vinyl design (and others) is designed to cling to the surface of a fourth-generation iPod, but we weren’t super impressed by its ability to stay on the iPod.



H2O Audio SV-iP4G - Click Here for Details

This full-sized iPod follow-up to H2O Audio’s SV-iMini underwater housing (iLounge rating: B+) preserves its predecessor’s premium price, includes underwater earphones, and now is compatible with different thicknesses of white and chrome iPods. Two neoprene enclosures are sold separately.



Mindknob Glove Leather Case - Click Here for Details

This inexpensive new sleeve for 20GB iPods uses “premium glove leather” and includes a non-detachable belt clip. Larger iPods won’t fit, though.



Otterbox 4G - Click Here for Details

This fourth-generation iPod-fitting version of Otterbox’s top-rated iPod waterproof case is identical in price, performance, and quality - just larger. Two versions are available - one for 20GB iPods, and one for 30-60GB iPods and iPod photos.



All Dock Connecting iPods

Monster iAirPlay - Click Here for Details

This power adapter from Monster Cable is designed to let you keep your iPod running while you’re on an airplane - assuming you can find one of the two types of power adapters currently in use. It also doubles as a car charger.



We’ll have plenty more to say on these new iPod accessories in the days to come - and there are some other surprises in store, too.

I bought the waterproof Otterbox for my 40 gb 4th gen. I’m full satisfied. It’s very strong clear see through. The included belt clip is very strong, secure, doesn’t off of the belt and easy to remove from the case. The ipod works perfectly the click the wheel trough the case membrane. It’s a must to get this, is also very shock proof, and LIFETIME garantee. No i’m not from the company, i just only tell it’s a perfect case.
