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.

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

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?

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

Any word on whether they’ve overcome this?
