It’s about time!  $20 bucks I’ll pay, but the $40 belkin is a bit much… (Although the line out is nice).

I like the price, but this is simply hideous. My Belkin AutoKit is a beauty!

Simply hideous? Belkin autokit is a beauty? Are you serious? Is there anyone out there that actually cares what the battery charger looks like? You’ve got to be kidding me. The ultimate in geekdom

True. I care, because it’s sitting in my car, looking at me every day. It’s white and ugly- the Belkin is white and great looking. As simple as that. the difference between a Chevy and a Porsche.

Again, an Ipod accessory where the shipping is ridiculous. $7.23 is the minimum. That’s too much, simply put. Total cost $27? Give me a break. I love my Ipod and was willing to pay an outrageous amount for it (went with the heart over the head). But I have to draw the line somewhere

That’s why those of us lucky to live near an Apple Store will just wait and buy one in town wink

No audio out? Forget it—the Belkin is the one to have.
