    hi
    I was just wondering because I was thinking of getting one but I don't get enough battery time on my iPod (3rd gen) as it is. Thanks:)

    Hey

    I have had an iTrip for a while now, and it has been useful. However, it does seem to use a lot more battery power than is ideal, despite what griffin says.

    FWIW...

    i was able to make the 6+ hour drive from memphis to new orleans while using the itrip on my 3G ipod without running out of steam before i got there. not to say that i could use it before charging once i got there, but it made it at least that far.

    I use my iTrip all the time. I have one for my 1st gen iPod and my mini and I would say that it usually knocks about half an hour off the battery life for me.
