Does anyone know if they are going to start making these compatable with the new iPod w/Click Wheel?

I am within 24-48 hours of making a decision on the Belkin pack vs this battery (leaving for college soon!) being that they are the the major competiting products.

Here is my problem:

On one hand, the BTI battery is awesome in that it lasts... almost too long smile and it completley covers the back, possibly making it easier to put in a pocket. However that could be a draw back (beside price, which is resonable imho). It is quite large and have people had success using it in their pocket for normal usage?

Across the ring in the blue trunks is the Belkin battery. I like the ability to use batteries and the price, however it seems.... strange looking. Wouldn't the ackward shape (and inability to fit on cases) make it potentially worse to carry in a pocket?

Thanks for any help.

PS- I highly suggest anyone who works with these batteries to make a better internal Ipod battery or more sleek external battery. There is a HUGE market for it-- say giving the ipod 15-20 hours of battery life. That's solve a lot of problems for those who need a compromise!

I managed to get my hands (and some pictures) on one of these batteries. It wasn't made by BTI, the brand was something Tek Gear. Anyway the person that was showing it to me told me that a new battery was being developed for the new 4th generation iPods that would probably be out in the next month or two. I would think that they'd make it available before the holiday season. Since the 4th generation iPods have the better battery life, the need for additional charging power seems to be a little less, but a great add on none the less.

Once I get more info, I'll be sure to follow up.

Sorry about taking so long, but I finally managed to get a hold my new iPod battery. I feel a little silly because I decided to choose something that I've never really heard of, but now that I'm using it, I'm excited. This site really helped me with all the info - I think I've been all over reading up on this stuff. It turns out the battery is an [url=]
ATG brand[/url], which I'm guessing is a copy of this BTI. I've had it about a week and besides the size - its great knowing I can wakeup in the morning - get dressed and not worry if i left my iPod charging.

Unless I've missed it, neither this review nor the BTI page describes the weight of the battery nor the AC in voltage requirement. Anyone know either of these details?

My concern is that: 1) it's huge and 2) what happens when the proprietary rechargeable battery dies (all rechargeables die after 300-500 charges).
