iHome iP49 travel alarm gets iPod dock
iPod docks are dime a dozen, and so are travel alarm clocks. What happens when iHome decides to introduce a new genre in the form of the iP49? This is not only a travel alarm clock, but might very well be the first one in the market that sports an iPod dock. Shipping with an AC adapter to juice your docked device (it can be an iPhone or iPod), you can always rely on its built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery just in case there is no power outlet in the vicinity, so make sure it is fully charged the night before you travel in order to avoid long, silent moments at your hotel room. Featuring a simple folding clamshell design that ensures its innards are protected when traveling, you get Bongiovi Acousitcs’ patented Digital Power Station technology and four neodymium compression drivers which are touted to offer studio quality audio regardless of where you are. Make a distinction between your weekdays and weekend thanks to its separate alarms, while customizable snooze times cater for just about every taste with gradual wake and sleep volume controls to prevent you from being awakened rudely. iHome is charging $159.99 for its iP49.
