The smartCharge features an adjustable, cable-free design and plugs directly into a cigarette lighter outlet. It has a built-in 3.5mm standard audio jack that allows you to hook up any cassette adapter or auxiliary cable, and an integrated LED that displays power status. The device can also charge fourth-generation iPods and iPod minis using a USB-iPod docking cable.

Finally a sleek looking charger which matches the shuffle in terms of style. The extra audio jack is cool too, as I’m using a cassette adapter in my car. Guess I’ll have to grab this one. Curious how much it’ll be…

Neat… True Apple style. Compared to this beauty, both Xtrememac’s and Griffin’s offer look quite sleazy. I like the pivoting concept.
