TEN Technology intros flexibleDock for iPods

TEN Technology today announced the flexibleDock, an adjustable iPod car dock and charger that replaces the companys flexDock for iPod mini. The flexibleDock works with all all dockable iPods—3G/4G/5G iPods, iPod mini and iPod nano. The accessory is priced at $50 and will begin shipping this week.

“As with all TEN products, form and function are of the utmost importance,” the company says. “The flexibleDock works with most standard cigarette lighter sockets to charge the iPod. In addition, the flexibleDock holds the iPod securely on a slender adjustable metal arm, allowing for easy positioning in the vehicle, increasing convenience and safety. The dark grey color of the flexibleDock blends nicely with most car interiors.”

Cool, I guess, but not what I need. When are we going to see a a dock I can power by a hampster running through a wheel?

i think this is a great idea.  I was thinking about a way to get my iPod centered/mounted somehow as to actually use its video capabilities for long trips and such.  This solves the problem pretty quickly and I can provide my old (like 3 years old) belkin charger to my girlfriend.  win win.

The snake arm is the best solution for car charger/FM transmitter docks, because the lego arm solution just doesn’t cut it for folks who are limited space. I have a 2003 VW Jetta and the TransPod I purchased for my G4 iPod is awkward in its position. I would love to find an all-in-one car solution charger/snake arm dock/fm transmitter for a G5 iPod. Oh well, I’ll keep dreaming…

Another thing—looking at the website. It doesn’t say/show if there is a back to the dock to stabilize the iPod. If it’s just the 8 pins that secure the ipod, then I would second guess how flimsy it would become over excessive use.

Doesn’t work in my Montana since the stupid plug is located under the cup holders.

I’ve been waiting for this myself. Just wish the Direct Audio Out was on the back of the plug to easily hide away any and all cables.

Anyone think the Apple Store will have it in stock by/for Friday’s sale?

Where do you go to buy one? I can’t find it on the Apple site. :(
