Oregon-based Fusion Audio Technologies (FAT? Seriously?) announced the availability of their new power extender for iPods and the iPhone this past Friday. Pulling its juice from six AAA batteries, the iPowerRush can turn the standard “oh crap my iPhone is about to die” dash home into a simple flip of a switch. FAT reports that the iPowerRush can pump an extra 10-15 hours of operation into the iPod depending on usage. iPhone battery life is extended by three hours of continuous internet usage, four hours of talk time or 120 hours of standby time. Available on their site for $30, the peace of mind that the iPowerRush provides is well worth the price of admission.
