Are you thinking of buying an Apple iPod? Or have you bought one?


Almost everyone and anyone that I know seems to have bought an iPod or at least is thinking of getting an ipod for themselves or their loved ones. The iPod is just so alluring! However, do you know what you should do after buying the iPod?


Most people don't. Yet, market analysts estimate that the average iPod owner spend as much as 30% of the original iPod price on additional accessories! That's a whopping US$ 60-US$ 90 on iPod accessories that each iPod owner will spend!


Many people are simply spending their money on the wrong accessories! In fact, many are going for fancy accessories such as car transceiver kit, wireless remote kit, speaker kit even without realizing what are the first accessories they should get.

Get the Basic iPod Accessory before getting the Fancy Stuff!


Do you, as a iPod user, faces these problems on a daily basis too?


* iPod Screen scratches

* Click wheel scratches

* Mirrored back scratches

* Messy iPod earphone cables

* iPod overheating when being charged while in a silicone or leather case


Despite the technical and cosmetic superiority of the Apple iPod, there remain some teething issues. Weak batteries is one. Being easily scratched is another. These problems immediately lower the resale or trade-in value of the iPod, if any? This may not seem important but if you are trading in your older iPod for a new one, this does matter. It also sucks to see scratches and marks on the beautiful iPod. In fact, microscopic scratches takes place everytime you take the iPod in and out of pocket!

Get a good-quality iPod case before ANYTHING ELSE!


There are numerous iPod accessories out there. Many accessories are fanciful, some are good but most do not fulfil the basic need of the iPod. You need to protect the iPod from getting scratches and accidental marks before anything else.


Before the iPod can serve you well, it must be able to take care of itself. So, before you even look further into getting your first iPod accessory or even if you have gotten numerous other accessories, make sure you first equip your iPod with either a good quality case or sleeve.


The most common iPod cases in use are:

Handphone sleeves converted to iPod sleeves


This is the most common as handphone sleeves are cheap and easily available. However, the mirrored back of the 3G and 4G ipod are easily scratched by theses sleeves as they run against the iPod. It is not recommended unless you have a budget problem.

iPod screen and wheel sticky protectors


There are transparent iPod screen and wheel sticky protector that are cut of the right size and stucked directly onto the iPod screen and wheel. However, there are various models in the market and some of the cheaper ones tend to curl and peel off after some use. If you are on a budget, a good quality screen and wheel protector is the minimum you should have.

iPod silicone skin


This is the most common iPod case around. It looks like a good casing choice but it is in fact one of the worst, especially if you have bought a cheap one.


These cheap silicone cases are being mass-produced in China with doubtful materials and design elements. Many of the cheap silicone skins in the market tear easily and pick up lint and dirt easily. They are also difficult to wash and maintain. I will not advise a silicone case unless they are made by some of the better and branded products from USA or Japan. A good model is found at: http://www.smart-ipod-ideas.com

iPod Leather case


The iPod leather case is one of the most popular case. However, do not get the Apple branded one if possible as it tears to scratched the mirror back and it does not have a covering flap. Get one of the leather cases from the many in the market. Check the stitching on the leather case before buying one as some of the mass-manufactured ones may have poor workmanship.

Water and shock resistant cases


There is an increasing demand for such cases as more and more people bring their iPod for hiking, cycling, trekking, fishing and beach trips. There are various good brands in the market. However, note that whatever the advertisement may say, at best, the case can only be water resistant and not water proof which is two different things all together. A water resistant case can only take splashes and short immersion in water and certainly not something you can bring for swimming or diving trips!

iPod Battery Care Tips

iPod Battery Care Tips

By Bobby George


The realm of digital music players has a verifiable leader: the Apple iPod. This little device is in many homes, backpacks, and pockets across the nation. The name iPod is synonymous with music and video. But sometimes the battery life of iPod doesn't exactly keep pace with a user's appetite for entertainment. That being said, here are some things you can do to prolong the runtime of your iPod battery and keep your tunes playing without interruptions.


Put it to sleep


Perhaps the easiest thing you can do to keep your iPod battery from running low too quickly is to put it to sleep while you aren't using it. This can be done by holding the play/pause button until the screen turns off. This will save the battery, but leaving an iPod in sleep mode for several days or more will still result in battery loss. It is a good idea to charge the iPod every now and then even when it isn't used much.


Don't Skip


For those of you who are never content with the current song or video and want to see what's coming next, try to refrain from too much skipping. The iPod is designed to play continuously for long periods of time, but skipping songs will quickly drain battery life. Also, when the iPod is in shuffle mode, the battery will drain quicker.


Watch Movies on a TV


One of the most attractive things about the new 5th Generation and 5.5 Generation iPods is their ability to play videos. iTunes even offers movie and TV show downloads for these devices. However, while watching video on the go seem appealing, it may be about the only thing you get to do with your iPod for the day. Video playback drains the iPod battery quicker than anything. If you have a short video to watch while riding to work or on an airplane, go right ahead. But, if you need to have a Lord of the Rings marathon, I suggest you do it at home.


Counter-Clockwise is the Way to Go


Another attractive aspect of the iPod is the click-wheel, a small circular controller used by sliding the thumb around it in either direction to scroll songs, increase volume, etc. For the battery-optimized iPod, counter clockwise is your friend. In other words, less is more. Lower settings in screen brightness, volume, etc. ultimately equal better battery life. Put the screen brightness at the lowest comfortable level. Keep the volume at a low point that is still easily heard. Doing these things will add precious minutes to your playback time.


Still not getting enough battery life out of your iPod? Add up to 18 hours of additional runtime with a battery add on at www.lowcostbatteries.com.
