Bearing an uncanny similarity to the Sonnet Volta battery we've previously reviewed - as well as other OEM battery packs we saw on a recent trip to Asia - Newer Technology's NuPower ViDEO+ (Video Plus) is a strap-on battery pack for the fifth-generation iPod, paired with a matching silicone case and a foam spacer pad that guarantees its compatibility with thinner 5G models. ViDEO+ promises to enable a fully charged iPod to deliver up to 80 total hours of music playback or 16 hours of video playback. A rotatable, detachable belt clip will also be included in the package.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
