iLuv Triple USB Charger
The iLuv Triple USB Charger is an ugly-but-useful lump of plastic. It’s basically just a mains plug with three USB connectors built into it, allowing you to connect and charge three different devices at the same time. That might seem a bit unnecessary, but trust me – it’s an absolute godsend when you’re at a tennis tournament in Eindhoven and you need to charge your iPhone, iPad and camcorder in your hotel room. The charger comes with mains adaptors for the UK, Europe, Australia and the US.

Kensington Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit
If you absolutely must use your iPhone when driving then Kensington’s Hands-Free Car Kit will at least ensure you keep your hands on the wheel. The device consists of a Bluetooth-enabled speakerphone unit that clips to the sun visor in your car, allowing you to receive calls while you’re driving. You can also make calls quickly, simply by pressing one of the three programmable speed-dial buttons. The rechargeable battery provides about ten hours of talk-time, but the kit also includes a spare battery that you can slip into your glove-compartment and keep as a back-up.

Re: Senheiser glow-in-the-dark cans
It's not 10/10, it's simply number ten in the alphabetically arranged list.
Despite the brief mention of the bumper case at the beginning, I was surprised that it wasn't at the top of the list.
I can't think of anything more 'essential' than something that allows this phone to.....make phone calls!
hmm, none of these really seem "essential" to me. and that iluv cack has got to be the fugliest bit of kit i've ever seen.
but now i *want* a moshi moshi handset and those sennheiser cans... mmm, shiny...
Why is this an iPhone roundup?
Only 40% of the items (The first 4) are iPhone specific. Getting sick of most of the roundups being Apple-centric, and this one isn't even mainly iPhone-only items, yet it deserves an iPhone title?
Sort it the hell out. Don't you get it? Many of your readers HATE Apple products and to see such an amount of articles specifically aimed at them (Like the rest of the press seem to do) is annoying. I used to read El Reg specifically because it didn't fawn over anything Apple, but now if anything it seems worse than other sites / rags.
The single best peripheral
for an iphone, is a bin.
