Energizer’s “Energi To Go” Portable Power for iPod is a battery-powered (it comes with two Energizer e2 Lithium AA batteries) charger that provides extended play time to a variety of iPod models. It’s a great device to have on a plane, hiking, camping, or anywhere you’ll find yourself without a power outlet for an extended period.
We’ve been testing the compact charger (3.5″ long x 1.25″ wide x .75″ deep) for the past few days and find it’s lightweight (under 2 ounces), travels easily, and delivers at least the Energizer’s stated battery run times:
iPod 80G: 32+ hours of audio, 12 hours of video
iPod 30G: 40+ hours of audio, 11 hours of video
iPod nano: 46+ hours of audio, (video not tested)
If you need even more time, just bring along extra AA batteries.
It charges iPhone and iPod touch, too, but we haven’t yet fully tested battery times for those two devices.
The device is easy to use:
1. Insert two AA batteries
2. Flip down the locking dock (use a coin to slide the dock connector into position to fit your iPod model)
3. Dock your iPod and it’ll start charging
We found that the number of charges varies depending upon the age of your iPod and battery. Two Energizer e2 Lithium AA batteries provide approximately 3 charges for an iPod nano and 2 charges for an iPod classic.
The MSRP for Energizer’s Energi To Go iPod Portable Power Source is US$29.99 which includes the charger and two Energizer e2 Lithium AA batteries.
