    I think this product is not bad if you cannot afford an iPod. How can I request a review of a product? I have been looking at a chargepod but would love someone who is knowledgeable to review this before I buy it. The company is a good one, have gotten a lot of my BlackBerry accessories there but I don’t know if this product works well or not. http://www.blackberrysource.com/store/catalog.asp?item=1111
