It features a slider switch that toggles between Charge/Sync and Audio Play modes. In Charge/Sync Mode, the Dock Adapter allows for data transfer and iTunes synchronization to and from the attached iPod shuffle as it charges the battery. Switch to Audio Mode to connect iPod shuffle to a speaker system. Dock Adapter for iPod shuffle is priced at US$19.99.
