Focal Powerbug offers easy charging for the iPod Shuffle
From Focal corp Japan comes the Powerbug which charges your 2nd generation iPod Shuffle using AC power. Just plug in the Powerbug to a power socket and using the provided USB cable connect the Shuffle to it. A green LED on the unit indicates the power status. As the Shuffle can only be charged via the USB port the Powerbug is very handy and useful.
The Powerbug measures 50×17×55mm and weighs 40 grams. It will be available from late February in Japan for 3480 Yen ($ 28).
