Cool design but really needs to be rechargable

I have very mixed feelings about this case. My one major problem is that it runs on two AA batteries instead of recharging. I use my IPod Touch a lot and I would probably go through a set of batteries once every day. I just don't see any point in spending about a buck a day for disposable batteries when there are so many other similar style cases that you can recharge for only a couple penny's a day. The only advantage that I can think of is if you are on the road and unable to recharge it then you could use batteries. Other than that I simply don't think it was a smart decision to design it this way.

The case itself is mostly made of silicone and it soft to the touch. My IPod Touch fir easily and securely into the case within a few seconds. One side of it is curved to fit nicely in your hand. The other side is flat so you can sit it on a table in order to watch a video without having to hold it. If you have pets like we do then you will quickly find out that this case attracts hair like crazy for some reason.

Another issue I have with it is when the batteries are running low your IPod Touch seems to keep switching back and forth between its internal battery and this case. It gets really annoying after a while because it keeps beeping like crazy and switching back and forth between the two sources of power.

Also if you need to charge your IPod Touch then you will have to remove this case because it covers up the charging / data port.

The batteries that come with this unit were 100% depleted so if you have any problems with it then you might want to check the batteries.

I received the DLO GameCase and immediately tried it out. It really gives you a much more comfortable grip when playing landscape view games. It also makes it much easier for my kids to play games with their smaller hands.    Upon using the supplied batteries we did not seem to get any added life to the ITouch. We ran it down completely and then installed new batteries and there was a noticeable difference in game time. Maybe the batteries that came with the case were dead?   &nbs …

When I first got my iPod Touch the very first thing I did was download some games for the kids. Most of these games were simple "point and click" affairs and the iPod Touch seems to be designed really well for this. My husband, however, added a few titles of his own. Namely some first-person shooters after hearing how great the graphics could be on the Touch.    The graphics did look great! There was only one problem, the games were basically unplayable due to the slimness of …

The DLO Game Case Boost for the iPod Touch is made of a silicone rubber that feels soft and allows you to have a firm grip on your iPod Touch. Great for playing games, especially for long trips. The ergonomic design uses less stress on your knuckles since your hands are more relax and not clutching the iPod. I actually like the idea that it uses AA batteries since sometimes I am not always in a location where I have access to a wall outlet to charge it. This is more of a convenient alternative to …
