Compact Power Systems Cellboost for iPod and iPod mini | iLounge



Given the state of the environment, we don't need more disposable products. Manufacturers need to become more accountable and produce products that take into account sustainablity and environmental stewardship.

I also think iLounge should also be assessing products on the environmental credentials that products have - question Jeremy: did the bad environmental credentials of this product affect its rating?

There are lots of rechargeable solutions for the iPod, and these should be the first choice for all iPod owners.

No. We noted it as an issue for those concerned, but do not presume to tell people that they should stop using all disposable batteries in favor of rechargeables. In addition to their added initial cost, there are times and places when rechargeable batteries are not as practical as disposable ones, hence the continued popularity of Duracells, Energizers, and other brands of one-use batteries. In the absence of legislation banning disposable batteries, readers should have the right to choose what they can afford and what works best for their needs.
