It might not be the end of the world to have the battery on your iPod nano die during your daily commute, but it certainly makes rush hour gridlock that much more painful. The TuneFlex from Griffin alleviates your power concerns, while at the same time mounting your favourite thin music player on a flexible arm so it’s easier for you to keep your eyes on the road while picking your favourite ditty.
Unfortunately, it does not come with a built-in FM transmitter, so either you’re going to have to be that weird guy on the interstate with headphones on – which isn’t that bright of an idea anyways, because it makes you less aware of your surroundings – or you’re going to have to invest in a second gadget to get your tunes jamming through your car’s speakers. Of course, Griffin is quick to mention that their $50 iTrip FM transmitter goes quite well the TuneFlex, fitting perfectly into the 1/8” stereo line-out audio jack.
The Griffin Tuneflex for the iPod nano is shipping now, and should be hitting your local retailer any day now at a price of $40 a pop.
