IPOD accessories

Looking to pick up a nano.
Any good places with good prices for nano accessories?
I'm looking to pickup the FM tuner, some protective case, and the USB charger.
They seem to charge alot for accessories in the apple store.

I'm awaiting my own nano, but I already have my case. I got it from Core (www.corecases.com). It might not be much of a deal at $20 plus shipping, but I'm very happy with the fit and finish. I hear the nanos can be fragile, so encasing it in aluminum only seemed prudent to me.

I allow my ipod to go unprotected. I live on the edge.

Awhile ago a link to www.belkin.com was listed for IPOD accessories. The code: 12345 got you half off. Now it looks like 40%. I'm not too sure

I'm not sure how long those guys have been in business, but they might have some leftovers if they had a case built for the photo. I'd suggest emailing them. They wrote me a handwritten post-it and stuck it on my order, so I emailed them to say thanks. They emailed me back, so they're super-friendly.

I usually go ebay for this stuff.. Look for a seller called 'everydaysource' or something like that.. they have like 300k feedbacks or something crazy.

Items are supercheap but they rip you on shipping.. next items ship for much less, so i bundle up..

Last order ended up being something like 3 silicons skins, 3 armbands, 3 neckstraps, car charger, car charger w/ FM transmitter, 2 wall chargers, black cradle, white cradle w/ blue led and I think some other stuff. Ended up being around $50 w/shipping ($30 for stuff, $20 for shipping). All for nano.

Plan ahead tho.. And quality varies.. I go for the 'insten' brand they sell, its pretty good. nonames are exactly that...

any deals for a FM radio attachment?
I like to switch between FM radio and my mp3.

Also, I noticed some of the nano cases (i.e. nano skins) leave the wheel and the viewing area unprotected. Should I get a case that covers the whole thing? But then it would be a pain if I need to access the wheel/screen.

Yes. The only things not covered in aluminum are the screen (plastic), the click wheel (nothing), the hold switch (nothing), and the bottom (again, nothing).

While they aren't cheap, I love the cases at MacSkinz.

The only reason I haven't ordered one yet is because they won't fit in my Bose dock and I'm still debating on whether or not I want to take it apart everytime I use it.
