New iPods Charging Issues Solved by Scosche Passport

I use my iPod whenever I am driving or riding, I usually I charge it before I ride. But when I’m in the car I use my iPod, I started using the iPod Nano in both cars. It can’t store all my music but 16 GB is a hell of a lot. One thing that I noticed right away is that it doesn’t charge, and my cousin has an iPod Touch 2G and that doesn’t charge as well on either iPod integration systems which is very odd. I thought at first it was a problem with my deck, but then it couldn’t be the same in another car. Now Scosche has come out with a solution that will let these iPods get charged like the older versions, I think it is a great solution and for a low price.

My iPod Nano 4G


I ordered this a couple of weeks back now, and it took two weeks to ship from Amazon and another week to arrive from Aramex. I kept hearing good reviews about it and how the build quality is high.

The package arrived and it weighed less the 1 lb, 0.65lbs to be exact. The best thing is unpacking an Apple product, they do know how to make simple and quality packaging. I liked the color of the Black or more like Dark Grey iPod Nano. As soon as you open it you realize how then it is. I couldn’t believe they fit 16 GB into something that thin, and its extremely light. I needed an mp3 player to use when I’m riding and this turned out to be the perfect player, you don’t even feel it in your pocket.

The screen quality and brightness are amazing, I haven’t seen something such as this before. You can clearly see the screen in bright day light, I was changing songs looking at the screen while wearing my motorcycle helmet during broad day light and I have a tinted screen. The scroller feels very nice and precise so I was clicking away. Surprisingly this mp3 player is louder through the same headphones then my iPod Touch. I usually set the volume just below the maximum when I’m riding to be able to hear it when its windy, but this was clearly louder and I was enjoying that.

Apple iPod Nano 16GB

I checked ou the Apple iPod Nano 4G and I liked the specs, so I decided to order one. I was looking between the red one and the black one, and I really like the red one. I ordered it from the Apple website, entered all my information and they said they would email me a confirmation. About a day later I get an email from Apple saying they don’t send to APO boxes, from last time I remember someone telling me that they can get Apple shipped to their Aramex account, so that really annoyed me. Luckly for me Amazon accepts anything so I ordered it from Amazon but since Red wasn’t available I went with Black instead. Its the perfect mp3 player to take with me riding this coming season and I hope it cools off soon.
