From the link, iPod Mini: 7 hours, MuVo2: 15 hours! Let’s use that battery!

I was considering the BTI solution, but then I found the Power Runner 2300:

http://www.tekkeon.com/site/products-powerrunner.php#

This product supports multiple devices and supposedly they have a firewire to dc connector to allow it to be used with the iPod (other adapters like PocketDoc may be necessary with 3Gs).  The firewire connector isn’t on there website but try contacting them.    The PR3200 will supposedly also allow 40hours with the iPod.  ....and it costs less than the BTI one ($95, but probably no free S&H):

They are also (again, supposedly) coming out with a product specifically for the iPod in a few months… although I still think the multi-device solution is the way to go… just put the thing in a bag or something and run a cord out to the iPod.

Couple this with a Din, Imp or PocketDoc and 3Gs are set!

This deserves it’s own iPodLounge News Headline in my opinion!

15 hours for a Muvo versus 7 hours for an iPod? Are you sure this is true?

Sorry, but that “iPod Battery” is just too dang ugly…

The only reason for that thing would probably be if you need to take the iPod with you on a trip in a car that doesn’t have a “cigarette lighter outlet”.

Maybe it’s just me but I can’t see that plastic thing coming near my new iPod in a near future.

15 hours is amazing but what is the big difference between the iPod and MuVo that the MuVo gets 15 hours on a charge? I can’t believe it’s just a different battery otherwise Apple would use it. Maybe the MuVo’s volume is not so loud?

You can’t use the Muvo battery in the iPod, pretty sure bout this. Anyone know where we can buy better iPod batteries online? There’s got to be some Hong Kong or Taiwan site or something with insane battery upgrades! There are for cell phones anyway.

FAIK you can’t get any longer lasting battery replacements for the iPod Mini. At least not yet.

Sticking with my 2G and loving it!

Working for two months in Glacier National Park. No electricity within 7 miles of the campground. 40 hours per charge makes this a no brainer.
How do you charge the IPOD with the Belkin unit??? This was mentioned in one thread.

40 Hours.

How can you complain !!!!

Put your IPOD into the docking station attach the Belkin or BTI battery to the docking station and it charges the IPOD. I have not given the IPOD a full charge this way so I do not know how long it will take or how it drains the attached battery
