Some of the newest accessory arrivals at iLounge include:

All iPods

Ignitek iCarrier - Click Here for Details

One of the largest iPod accessories we’ve ever seen comes from Ignitek: the iCarrier is an elaborate speaker system with an iPod dock at top and a large subwoofer at the bottom. Standing as tall as Fantasy Island’s Herve Villechaize, iCarrier’s features can be remote controlled or accessed via a front panel of buttons.


Full-Sized iPods

Nyko iBoost - Click Here for Details

This slim battery pack from Nyko follows up on the company’s iBoost mini, offering an additional 16 hours of play time for any 3G, 4G or photo iPod. As with iBoost mini, it can be docked in an official Apple Dock for easy recharging.



Paul Frank iPod Cases - Click Here for Details

These leather PDA-style cases for full-sized iPods include the images of Julius the Monkey and other Paul Frank designs. They use an elastic strap to hold the iPod inside, are closed with a Velcro tab, and include non-detachable covered metal belt clips.



iPod shuffle

Pods Plus Crystal Case for iPod shuffle - Click Here for Details

iPod accessory maker Pods Plus delivers a clear hard plastic iPod shuffle holder with its own included lanyard, two face plates, and one rear plate. You can swap the face plates to give your iPod shuffle a different color, and easily detach or attach the lanyard as you prefer.



XtremeMac Audio Kit for iPod shuffle - Click Here for Details

This collection of accessories from XtremeMac includes an audio splitter, two types of audio cables, a car charger, and a cassette tape adapter for your car.

My applause to NYKO. Finally someone recognizes that the dockconnector should not be blocked by an external battery.

The Nyko iBoost mini must be the best thing i’ve ever bought for my iPod mini! It’s the perfect batterypack in every way (or at least for my needs ;)). Good to see a version for the regular iPods also..
