Okay, first off. This thing is by no means a 4-in-1 iPod accessory. It does one thing, charge. Now hit the jump for my exciting Kensington iPod Car Charger adventure, starring Hannah—my black iPod nano (yes, I really named it Hannah, don't ask). The Kensington 1-in-1 car charger is available for $30.
What's this? My Civic has both a power adapter and an auxiliary audio adapter? Sound's like a match made in heaven for Hannah the iPod. But if only I could keep her charging while I am driving...
Plug in the Kensington power adapter and I should be on my way to an iPod rockin' good time, right?
Now, simply plug the Kensington dock adapter into Hannah. Almost there, I'm so excited!
Wait a silly gosh darn second here. The Kensington adapter covered up the audio jack on her! I don't have a FM transmitter, either. What will I ever do? :(
Still saddened, our hero begins to turn on the FM radio, destined to listen to crap forever.
Wait! An idea is a brewing! Yes, I think it just might work! The Kensington power adapter simply has a USB port. So that means the Apple iPod connector should work!
Yes, it works! Hannah is happy to be charging and playing. All is well!
Stay tuned next week when our hero tries to discover the true meaning of life with the help of a fleshlight, rubber band and a crappy Korean cellphone.
