Gecko Gear nano sports convertible armband

Using a modified version of Gecko's gecko glove silicone case as a base, the nano sports convertible armband features a diagonally striped, textured iPod holder in black or frosted clear, plus a nicely designed fabric detachable armband. The armband attaches to the case with a dedicated Velcro holder that runs through two slits in the case's back, and has a Velcro pocket for keys.

Griffin PowerBlock travel International USB Charger

Expanding upon the company's earlier PowerBlock wall charger accessory, Griffin has released PowerBlock travel (capitalization theirs), a larger package containing three international wall blade adapters, a simple fabric carrying case with drawstring, and the prior combination of a USB wall charger and iPod-to-USB cable. Though there aren't as many wall blades in the package as you might find in, say, a Radio Shack collection, Griffin's pack-ins will work in countries with matching wall outlets and voltages from 110V to 240V.
