Build Your Own iPod External Charger

Sometimes an electrical outlet is not available. This hack contains all the information you’ll need to build your own battery-based iPod External Charger.

The iPod External Charger allows iPod users to run their iPods off (and charge their iPods’ internal batteries with) eight standard and easily replaceable AA batteries. One of the best aspects of the charger is that it’s really cheap to build!

Table 1-5 lists the parts you need. RadioShack parts can be found at your local RadioShack or at http://www.radioshack.com.
