    Hey guys,
    Are ebay ipod accessories safe to use?
    I just ordered a bundle of 3 things: retractable ipod cable, car charger, and wall usb charger for guess how much! $2.50 free shipping!
    And now I ordered a ipod usb cable for guess how much? $0.01 with free shipping.

    So can these super cheap products damage your device?
    Has anyone had bad experiences?

    Thanks!
    also: if your interested in getting these things, just let me know and ill give you link

    Heres the link to usb charger, car charger, and retractable usb cable for $2.50 http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220452832939&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    and for the $0.01 usb cable, heres what you do: go to this link: http://shop.ebay.ca/i.html?_trkparm...5&_nkw=usb&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_sop=15&_sc=1

    and then select price and shipping lowest first
    and you'll see several items for 0.01 auction that are ending in 1m
    find the ipod cable for 0.01 and you'll see its auction ending in 1m or 2m
    then just bid
    there's not much competition and you'll end up getting it

    note: free shipping for all items!


    edit:
    heres a 3x screen protector for $1.47 http://cgi.ebay.ca/3pcs-SCREEN-PROT...ries?hash=item3ca46d7c17&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14


    they have 1x screen protectors for $1.00 but add 0.47 and get 3x so better deal
