There are many hand held electronic devises these days and just as many accessories to go with them. You can find everything you need online, at places like eBay or Amazon. But be sure you know what you are looking for, because not everything is interchangeable or returnable.
For example, if you have an iPhone 3G, don’t expect that your previous iPhone adapter will work. Most of the time you will have to get not only a new adapter, but a new case to fit it as well. But relax; there are plenty of folks online selling iPhone 3Gs cases at good prices because they plan on upgrading to the next generation as soon as possible.
Also for those who prefer MP3 players over iPods, there are great deals you can find on Amazon, if you are willing to sacrifice your favorite color. The prices for the hippest or coolest colors are the most expensive, but if you don’t care too much about that sort of thing, then you can purchase a basic black cover for 60 percent off the regular retail price. And it is not just the MP3 covers; you can find iPod 3G cases super cheap right now, because the newer iPod 4G cases are in high demand. The more protection your iPod cases have, the higher the price might be. For example if you were to buy one of the sturdy silicone cases it will most likely cost more than a simple fabric case, because the silicone offers much more in the way of protecting your iPod.
And let us not forget all those ear buds, car chargers and basic adapters. It is always best to buy a package deal if you need the whole package. But sometimes all you might really need is the basic adapter. Also you may be surprised to find out that the Dollar Store will sometimes carry ear buds that will work with iPods and MP3 players. They might not be supper high quality, but they will do in a pinch and are perfect for as a backup pair.
So, before you get your heart set on one of the fancy new iPod 4G cases you saw at the mall, take the time to search online for a better price. You never know what kind of deals you might find with just a few minutes of research. But if you are determined to have the latest and greatest trendy MP3 or iPod cover, then talk to your local dealer. See if they are willing to make a package deal or at least perhaps throw in a free set of ear buds. It doesn’t hurt to ask and every little bit of savings helps in today’s fragile economy.
