I tried this one out to replace a Belkin 4-channel, battery-powered unit. The Belkin worked okay as long as batteries were fresh and I could locate the transmitter near the radio in the interior of the car, but the Macally looked interesting because it eliminates the battery issue and lets you pick any FM channel. <BR><BR> So far so good, virtually zero static in the main car I use it in. I'm using it with a Dell DJ15. About the only downside so far is the retractible cable, which is a little thin. <BR><BR> The unit also comes with a regular power adapter in case you'd like to use the unit in the house. Just be careful... the power adapter has a USB end, so don't plug it in behind a wall and hang the end out near your USB hub... I'd hate to see what happens if I accidentally plug it in thinking it is my scanner or something. <BR><BR> If you don't have an Ipod you'll get an extra Ipod-only cable. Who knows, maybe I'll be elite enough to get an Ipod one day :) <BR><BR> Pros:<BR> - No batteries to worry about<BR> - Can pick any FM channel<BR> - Backlit display<BR> <BR><BR> Cons:<BR> - Retractible cord is thin<BR>

this needs two cables to be connected to the ipod. one for charging (ipod only it seems) and one for to the headphone output. Other than that it works very well and does come with a wall plug powersupply for home use.
