Once again, nice product, but overpriced. I know apple has a nice niche market, but just because the iPod is overpriced doesnt mean that every single accessory has to be. I am so sick of this price gauging. iPod accessories must be sold in a similar vein as crude oil, because we get raped on a regular basis.

I apologize in advance. I meant “price gouging”. I know sooner or later someone would correct me. So I’m sorry for my error.

I’m with you Lupin on the gouging from Apple/others… except in this case it’s not too far out of line given that it is both a car AND home power source…

That being said, I’d prefer to have individual adapters and leave the car one IN the car grin

Very true Lupin.

$50 for a charger is significantly overpriced. I’m surprized more companies aren’t out there making generic products. I bet the production cost of the charger is less than a dollar.

What a bunch of whiners.  $50 for a product that charges on a plane, a car and at home?!?  One prduct for all of that and it’s too much?!?  It looks cool too.  Some people are just happier complaining.

“Once again, nice product, but overpriced.”

Apple AC adapter for iPod: $50
Car adapter: ~$20
Line-out adapter: $20

The Incase product looks like a pretty good deal to me.

If you guys are travelers…this would be a perfect tool.  Airlines has DC outlets on every seat.  Since people seem to have battery issues, this should help them when they travel, and they don’t have to separately carry an AC adapter with them as well…I think it’s a great product and worth the money.

Overall, I’m very satisfied with the Incase charger, although I agree that it is a bit overpriced. Also, the connector portion is a bit on the bigger size, which may be an issue if you have to plug it into a power strip.

I was looking for a charger that I could use both in the car and at work and the Incase charger was a good solution. I would definitely recommend it to anyone willing to pay $50+ for a 2 in 1 solution.
