Logitech S715i iPod speaker dock promises 8hr battery [Video]

Logitech’s latest iPod and iPhone speaker dock has been unveiled, and the company reckons you’ll see up to eight hours of battery life from it – an hour, in fact, for every speaker squeezed inside.  The Logitech Rechargeable Speaker S715i has a universal dock connector, IR remote control and a 3.5mm aux-in socket, and has a curvy, swoopy chassis that comes with asoft carry-case.

Logitech use neodymium drivers and tweeters (two of each, along with four 2-inch passive radiators) but if you have a 3rd-gen iPod or earlier you’ll need to use the aux-in port as the dock won’t fit.  $149.99 seems on the high side for a portable dock, but if the battery life predictions turn out to be accurate then frequent travellers might find the S715i appealing.
