"Get the sound pumping!"

I got this docking station free with my iPod and I love it!

The docking station acts as a charger for any gen iPod or iPhone. It also acts as a reasonable speaker for the iPod. Once you crack up the bass and treble and then the volume you get a rather clear sound from it, even when it’s loud.

You can set two alarms at once and can choose to either be woken up by a song from you iPod, the radio or a rather annoying high pitched beeping which, when it first went off scared me out of bed because I had no idea what it was.

Setting the time and alarms is pretty easy however you can only do it with the buttons on the docking system not the remote.

I was quiet happy this came with a remote as it means I can turn the alarm off and change songs or radio station all from my bed while the docking station is on the other side of the room (defeats the purpose of an alarm really I know but hey…).

Other features of this docking station is the auxiliary port allowing you to plug in any other media device such as another mp3 player, cd player or your phone and use the speaker to play your tunes off even if you don’t have an iPod.

There is also a blue black-light which can be dimmed or turned off so you can see the time or what radio station you’re set to even in the dark.

I use this docking station daily for both listening to music and to charge my iPod and wouldn’t know what I’d do without it (probably buy a plug in charger or use my laptop but where’s the fun in that?)

You can put batteries in the bottom of this which is meant to act as a fail-safe in case the mains power goes off so you don’t have to keep resetting the clock and so you don’t miss you alarm in case it goes off overnight however it doesn’t seem to work for me even with brand new batteries.

I believe you can get these for about £20 so for the price they’re amazing; if you want something with a few more features and better sound quality then you might want to look into something a wee bit more expensive but if not this does the trick amazingly.
