Incipio debuts ‘iPod ShuffleBud’ USB adapter for Apple’s 2G iPod shuffle

Incipio has debuted the “iPod ShuffleBud” which allows 2nd generation iPod shuffle owners to easily connect an iPod shuffle to any USB port without having to use Apple’s iPod shuffle Dock (included with your iPod shuffle).

Supporting full speed USB transfer rates, the iPod ShuffleBud is a nice travel companion, taking up virtually no space in a bag or pocket. There’s no need to haul around the Dock and cables that came with your iPod Shuffle, just pack the iPod ShuffleBud and you’re all set.

The iPod ShuffleBud also comes with a lanyard loop on the side so you can attach it to backpack or laptop case and weighs in at 5.6 grams and measures 47mm X 16mm.

Incipio’s “iPod ShuffleBud” retails for US$5.99.

  1. Nice little addon with a nice little price. If it cost so little to make, though, Apple shoulda tossed one in the box to begin with. With their scale it would have added a whole buck to the price.

  2. Hopefully, the Apple Store or iPod dealers will soon carry this item; that’ll save the $4.99 shipping charge. Perhaps vendors like MacMall and MacConnection, who often bundle extras with their iPods (since they rarely discount the price) will throw one in. I expect this item to sell very well.

  3. Since the Shuffle is 1GB and can only hold about 240 songs, it really doesn’t make much of a difference whether it’s USB 1 or 2, it’s not going to take long to fill it either way. Now if we were talking about filling your 8GB nano or your 30GB ipod at USB 1.0 speeds, that would be a big problem.
