Apple iPod touch 2G owners tired of their PMP expiring mid-way through their favorite track can now slap on a mophie Juice Pack and more than double playback time. Taking the same approach as the Juice Pack for the iPhone and iPhone 3G, the mophie Juice Pack for iPod touch 2G is basically a cradle containing a rechargeable Li-Ion battery.
mophie supply it fully charged and with a pass-through USB connector so users can sync (and charge) their iPod touch 2G without needing to remove it from the sleeve. Since the touch also has its headphone jack on the bottom, there's a pass-through connector for that, too.
The whole thing is covered in a soft-touch, non-slip coating, but one of our original criticisms - the exposed top edges - still remains. It promises up to 42hrs extra audio playback or up to 7hrs extra video playback, and on the back there's a four-LED battery status display. The mophie Juice Pack for iPod touch 2G is available now, priced at $99.95.
