Stay away from the “power stick”.  I bought one and It melted!  I did get it replaced ok, but melting shouldnt happen!

Yup, I heard that there were problems in the older batch of such adaptors, but I havn’t heard of anyone with problems recently. I’m using one myself and it’s fantastic.

I personally like my homemade FW to 9V plug that I got in the lounge classifieds for $6.  Its cheap, simple, and performs flawlessly.

This looks like a knockoff of the ezGear powerStick which uses the official Apple dock connector.

If you get a powerStick, make sure you get one that uses the proper connector.

Found another ‘knockoff’ that iPodlounge reviewed some time back at http://www.ipodlounge.com/index.php/accessories/product/gadget-accessories-external-ipod-battery-pack/ . I wonder who came first. Anyway, what difference does a proper connector makes? As long as they fit well, doesn’t blow my iPod, and does the job, it works for me.

I’m really afraid of using homemade ones though. These are the stuff that will fry my baby. I rather get a proper adaptor from one of the above guys.
