There are many different types of iPod accessories and iPod video accessories available on the market. There are literally thousands of iPod cases, for example. iPods are very sensitive, which is why there are so many iPod accessories devoted to protecting them, from socks to cases designed to withstand thirty feet of water. You probably do not need that level of extreme protection, but you should still make sure that you are not carrying your iPod around, case free, in your hand which is a sure recipe for disaster. You would not want to lose your collection of videos and music, especially if you have not backed them up on your computer which is strongly recommended.
If you have a video iPod, you will definitely want to purchase a good pair of headphones, preferably sound proof. These range in price from around fifty to three hundred dollars and up, based on quality. There are also iPod video accessories that look like shades but display like a big screen TV! When you put them on, the image you see looks like your own personal digital quality movie screen, and the headphones have very crisp digital sound quality as well.
Most iPod accessories, including headphones, iPod video accessories products, and charger kits and cables are heat sensitive. In other words, try to limit their exposure to direct sunlight and store them with the cords wrapped to avoid fraying and breakage. From time to time, you may want to clean them with a mild cleanser designed expressly for that purpose to remove fingerprints, dust, dirt, and other debris.
Be sure to keep all manuals, warranty cards and other information in a safe place, either in the original boxes or in a file cabinet. This way, you will always know where they are in case you need to refer to them. Also, be sure to fill out the warranty cards for your products. It only makes sense to protect your investments.
There are many different types of accessories available, so do a little research to determine which ones fit your needs. One last caveat that should be mentioned has to do with where you obtain the movies that you watch on your iPod. Movies downloaded from P2P sharing sites, even legitimate ones, may contain corrupt files that can harm your iPod and computer, so be sure to only download from trusted source.
