    USB speaker? What will you plug it into? There's only a dock connector and the only adapter that allows a USB connection is the Camera Connection Kit. Are you looking for USB speakers that can be used with that?

    I'm looking for a speaker that works with the Camera Connection Kit. I didn't realize there was another usb option.

    Have you considered portable speakers that are battery powered (or passive) that connect via the headphone jack or ones that connect via Bluetooth?

    For example:


    Headphone jack, rechargeable battery powered:

    Headphone jack, passive:

    Bluetooth battery powered:

    Bluetooth battery powered but $$:

    I want to avoid batteries.

    I'm wondering if something like this could be powered by the Camera Connection Kit without requiring a powered hub.

    I ordered the Rock-it 2 from the same manufacturers, can't wait until it arrives and I can turn anything into a speaker!
