iPod skin for life June 26, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Accessories, iPods, New Stuff.

About time someone thought of this.

A company from the U.K. called easyishop has come up with the perfect solution for people who’d gladly graft iPod earphones to their ears to connect to the iPod they’ve had transplanted into their chests: a line of silicone iPod skins with a built-in battery backup.

The iLuv line incorporates the battery into the skin, and extends power for up to 42 hours of use. Wowza. It allows access to all the controls, and the best part is you can sync with your Mac and charge it all without removing the silicone skin. So there would theoretically be no reason to ever remove this protector other than to clean it and the iPod, and it would ostensibly extend your iPod’s life beyond its battery’s ability to hold a charge, which is always cool.

It comes in black or white and comes with a USB charger. All this goodness would set you back about US$90.

The only thing that could top this is if they made a similar thing for the iPhone.

i don’t think it will be that hard to replace the battery in an iphone. I too replaced my iPod Battery from http://www.ipodjuice.com and it was easy. Plus, they say they will have a kit for the iphone too so I am going to get mine iphone on June 29th if possible!

I’m envious you can actually buy one, Alecia. We here in Asia only get it next year. Regarding iPhone batteries, I think Apple deliberately didn’t make the phone user-serviceable (although I’m sure it can be done, at the risk of voiding any hope of warranties). Good luck on buying one tomorrow!
