Newer Technology has announced the NuPower ViDEO+ rechargeable battery pack fifth-generation iPods. The $50 device attaches to any 5G (video) iPod to provide an extra 80 hours of music listening or 16 hours of video viewing. The NuPower ViDEO+—which includes the battery pack, stand, docking station, and belt clip—also doubles as a portable charger, delivering up to three charges to an iPod’s internal battery. “The lightweight NuPower ViDEO+ is priceless wherever you go—on an airplane, beach, or anywhere you’d like to relax with your iPod Video without worrying about finding a power outlet to enjoy your music and video,” says the company.

Is this just a re-branded Volta with a few extra accessories?  It sure looks like it on their website.

16 hours of video?  That’s good news.  This is great for long bus rides or if you take your iPod backpacking with you.  If it gets good reviews, I definitely would buy this.

It would probably scratch the iPod.
