This blue-colored semi-hard carrying case for iPods zips open to reveal a NXT flat-panel speaker system and battery charger, which connect to most iPods through a Dock Connector port on the case’s bottom. SoundBag’s internal lithium-ion battery provides power for both the iPod and speakers, running for a promised seven-plus hours with a fully charged iPod, less with a discharged iPod. There are input ports for auxiliary audio-in – if you’re using, say, an iPod shuffle or early iPod – and power-in from an Apple wall charger, which the company presently includes in the package, but future buyers may have to supply themselves.
