Griffin Technology today announced a new version of its PowerJolt iPod auto charger. The redesigned model, which sells for $20, features a new black exterior with matching cables, plugs into any 12V accessory port or cigarette lighter socket, and charges your iPod while playing music or in standby mode. It comes with a detachable 48” USB to Dock Connector cable and, for use with the new iTrip and iTrip nano, a 48” USB to mini-USB cable. The PowerJolt also comes with a free LE version of Griffin’s iFill software, which
automatically loads Internet radio content to your iPod.

What’s the USB to mini usb cable for?

It’s ugly compared to the old PowerJolt. It looks very generic and cheap.

“What’s the USB to mini usb cable for?”

It is used to charge the ipod while using the itrip which has a mini usb port on the bottom.

I tried to use a car charger with my iTrip for nano and it picked up noise that made it totally unusable.  Am I to understand that I won’t have that problem with this unit?

Have experienced the same thing, a high-pitched noise.

Any word on whether they’ve overcome this?
