Kensington dangles iPod Shuffle dock dongle

Access a world of accessories

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Last week we told you about a neat new adaptor that allows iPod Nano users to connect a host of older iPod accessories to their slimline music player. Now, thanks to Kensington - better known for its ubiquitous notebook lock port - so too can Shuffle owners.

Yes, Kensington's appropriately named Shuffle Accessory Adapter finally brings the standard iPod dock connector to the diminutive, screenless device. It's dead simple: the adaptor box has a USB socket on one end and a dock connector on the other.

There's a slight catch: Kensington admits the adaptor doesn't work with accessories that control the iPod - for example, Kensington's own Stereo Dock, which incorporates a remote control - but anything that simply responds to an outgoing control signals and to music, such as FM transmitters, should work just fine.

And, at £15 in the UK or $20 in the US, it's a snip. ®
