Griffin Technologies is getting ready to release a “iTrip” FM transmitter for the new iPod Nano. This iTrip, unlike any previous ones, is a little backpack for the iPod Nano, instead of just attaching onto the bottom or top. The new iTrip also utilizes the iPod Nanos LCD display and change frequencies, so no extra buttons are on the actual unit. The iPod Nano can be charged/synced while the iTrip 4 Nano is attached onto the unit. The iPod will also save three preset stations to make it easier to use. No batteries are required for the unit, however this means it will rapidly drain the battery life of your iPod Nano. (which is already too short) The iTrip 4 iPod Nano will go on sale sometime next month (November 05), but is currently available for pre-order at a price of $49.99.

The unit has a control for changing frequencies and operating the iTrip specific menu options, you do not use the clickwheel for this. Why do you say the nano’s battery life is short?
The reason I say the battery life is short is because on average it lasts only 6-7hrs on both of my iPod Nanos. When comparing this to other Mp3 players I own, which get about 40-50hrs of battery life this is short.
