Battery-Biz to Release Hi-Capacity® External iPod Battery
NEWBURY PARK, CA – May 23, 2005 – Battery-Biz
Inc., the leading manufacturer and distributor of rechargeable replacement
batteries, has announced that it will bring the Hi-Capacity® External
iPod Battery to market. The Hi-Capacity® External iPod battery
is slightly smaller than the standard iPod device and weighs 57 grams,
making it one of the most compact external iPod batteries on the market.
The rechargeable Lithium Ion battery pack provides up to 14 hours
of extended runtime and will also charge the internal battery for
most iPod models. The Hi-Capacity® External iPod Battery is compatible
with 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th generation iPod models, the iPod Photo
model and the iPod Mini model.
The battery attaches to the iPod device with a provided
output cable and is held in place with a clear silicon band, thus
making the battery almost indistinguishable from the iPod device.
The use of an unobtrusive transparent band to connect the battery
to the device instead of a heavy plastic sleeve or an unattached corded
power supply found in competing models is another distinguishing characteristic
of the Hi-Capacity® External iPod Battery.
The Hi-Capacity® External iPod Battery includes
an input cable, output cable and silicon attachment band and will
be available in the third quarter of 2005 with a suggested retail
price of $69.99, making it the most cost-effective solution on the
