iPod Nano add-on adds old iPod add-ons

Re-use your old accessories

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

US manufacturer Battery Technology has come up with a rather neat accessory for iPod owners who've downsized to a Nano from an older third or fourth generation player, or from an iPod Mini. It's a connector that allows you to plug almost all of your old headphone accessories into your new player.

The u-Link clips onto the Nano's dock connector and into the player's earphone socket. On the other side is a new 3.5mm socket and remote control slot ready for old iTrips, remote controls, iBeams and other accessories.

Not all will, mind. Apparently, the u-Link isn't much use if you want to plug your Griffin iTalk or Belkin Voice Recorder into your Nano - probably because the voice recording software's not on the player.

The company's selling the u-Link through a wide range of reseller and retailers, online and high street, in the US and Europe, including the UK's iWorld, which is offering the product for a tenner, and from whom we nabbed the pic. ®
