Belkin State-side has announced new four iPod accessories.

Not the most glamourous of devices, this new foursome of products are none the less v. v. useful as they will "maintain or replenish" (we tend to say "charge" but that's just us) your iPod.

For use at home, the Power Dock will charge and sync your iPod while the Power Dock AV will charge, sync, and play your iPod.

The Power Adapter connects your iPod directly to a wall outlet to keep it charged. Handy.

And for those with four wheeled transport, there is a in-car power adapter.

So, not sexy but tres practical - your Mum would approve.
