How many of you out there have an iPod? How many of you leave the house? What about having a car? Even if you don’t have an iPod, you may have a device that requires a charger of some type. I’m sure you have a mobile power adapter. Today, I picked up the ultimate charger. The Emerge Tech Retractable 5-in-1 iPod Charger is an awesome little travel option. The features include:

  • Compatibility: This accessory is compatible with iPod, iPod mini and iPod nano.
  • Versatile charger: A car power adapter, wall power adapter, USB and Firewire charge plug are all included, so no matter where you are you’ll be able to stay powered up.
  • USB and sync cables: Sync with your Mac or PC, or use the USB cable to transfer music, pictures and video to your iPod.
  • High-quality: Durable ABS housing means this accessory will be particularly hard to break in any situation.
  • Retractable components: The cords retract into the shell for protection and to save space.

Even if you don’t own an iPod, I still recommend this gadget. It’s well worth the $20 I paid for it, even if only to have the USB and Firewire charging capability. What other travel devices do you use and cannot live without?

  4. Hello,

    I use a 4-port USB car adapter that plugs into cigarette lighter to power my devices. I bought it on DealExtreme for about $7-8, I think.

  7. Hey chris thank you for finding this. This is something i have been looking for along time. I am going on vacation next Friday and i am getting this soon this soon!

  8. I’m all about the Kensington Universal adapters. I have a DC only one that lives in the car permanently, and AC/DC ones that live on my desk at work, and in my laptop bag all the time. Each of them has “tips” for my laptop, iPod, Cell Phone. So I can plug anything in, anywhere.

    What more could you ask for?

  9. Chris,
    Great find. Are you still using this charger? How is it holding up? Does it have any specs? Specifically, how much current can it supply for firewire and USB? I am asking because some of my devices need 1A charge current.
