    Use to translate. Brilliant design.

    The next step would be to take the cigarette lighter version and add a 5v regulator using something like an 7805 regulator IC and add a USB cable that will charge your ipod from the same circuit. It would only add three electrical components and the headphone jack wire and usb wire could be taped/tied/heat shrunk togther so that they diverged at the end with just enough space to slack to connect into the proper places.

    By the way, the author made reference to as his source for the main component. THey give out free samples, so this kit really is cheap.
