[HAK] XBOX Controller iPod shuffle Charger



Not content to sit by and watch the Playstation 2 get all the shuffle love Hoodman sent us deets on how he hacked an iPod shuffle charger into his XBOX controller. I've put his pics and instructions into a flicker photoset. For those too lazy to make the jump here are the basics: find a female USB connector, crack open the controller, solder some stuff, add some hot glue, and charge!

You simply turn the PS2 on with nothing in the cd tray, plug the shuffle in, let charge, unplug, turn off ps2. I let mine run for a few hours to charge it up. -Jim
