There's a new charger on the market that claims to increase the battery life of the iPhone and iPod by between 10 to 15 hours. As a practical matter, we are talking about more than double the eight hour power life of the iPhone itself.

This gizmo is called the iPowerRush. Powered by 6 AAA batteries, it comes with a power on/off slide switch and a push button power indicator that tells you how much juice is left in the iPower Rush.

iPowerRush claims to extend talk time by four hours, Internet use by three, video by 3.5, audio by 14 and standby by 120 hours.

iPowerRush costs $29.95 and is from Fusion Audio Technologies, Inc. of Eugene, Oregon.

Not endorsing it because, well, I haven't tried it yet. Nor have I seen any third party test results. But if this gizmo performs as well as the specs claim it does- and I have no reason to doubt that it can- then I'd think iPhone and iPod users might want to think about checking the iPowerRush out.
