Productivity & Independence!

Hi, I bought the adapter particularly as I was not always around my ThinkPad to charge my iPod Shuffle and when I was around, I'd use the USB ports for other purposes. Hence, this turned out to be a great buy for me. Works great and is small and convenient to carry around during travel. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for more productivity and independence with their iPod. Remember, you don't need to carry around your laptop around to charge the iPod after you buy this.

The only con I see is that this product does not ship with an Apple iPod Shuffle USB Cable used for syncing and battery charging but instead an Apple Dock Connector to USB Cable which is used to charge and sync your iPod (excluding the Shuffle), iPhone, or iPad with your Mac or Windows PC. It is quite presumptuous of Apple, but yes, they expect you to use your existing shuffle USB cable which is always not such a good idea.
