Calling IT/Gadget Geeks

This is commuter related because I intend to use the iPod for the laps of RP on the way home  :wink: .

Anyhoo, does anyone know where I can get the following:

1. an adaptor of some sort that allows two people to listen to the one iPod at the same time;

2. an iPod charger which connects to the car cigarette lighter, so I don't have to bother with buying enough batteries to power the USS Nimitz; or

3. if not an iPod, some other form of gadget/portable CD player/MP3 players (whatever they are; I've just heard the name) which allows the same two people to listen at the same time? (They'll be kids, listening to the CD set of Winnie the Pooh.)

Cheers

    If you're talking about two people listening to the one ipod while cycling that could be difficult. If however you're talking about something different then all you need is a headphone splitter http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-Speaker-Headphones-Splitter-White/dp/B000CI3480/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1243792091&sr=8-1
    And then plug two pairs of headphones in - it will drain the battery faster however.
    Here's a car charger http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-In-Car-Charger-for-iPod/dp/B001F6M4JI/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1243792181&sr=1-4

    1) i think you could get spliters for headphones.

    2) pcworld etc should have a ipod charger though make sure you check compatblity as not all ipods like the same chargers, so places that don't quible would be wise.

    Just get one big pair of headphones and stick it over the pair of em. Duck tape would help keep everything secure. Then hope there's not some weird subliminal thing going on if you just hear one track.
