The company said its iPod mini battery pack ($15.99) will extend the life of an iPod mini an additional 8 hours using 6 rechargeable AAA batteries. Pacific Rim’s magnesium alloy case for 4G iPods ($34.99) has a clear plastic front and will be available in three sizes for 20/40/60GB iPods. It is available in black or silver. The company’s new magnesium alloy case for iPod mini ($29.99; pictured at right) also has a clear plastic front, but is available in five matching iPod mini colors.

Does anyone have one of these magnesium cases?  They look fairly nice (except for some weird cutouts on the top and bottom), but I’d like to see a review before plunking down $35.

Maybe iPodlounge could do one of their fine case reviews on these?

I just saw their booth at the MacWorld show. Pretty nice case, i just got one for my mini. The top is open for my itrip: that’s why i got it. The bottom give me access to the ipod connector.
