of course its possible! it'd be kinda silly if it wasnt.... :D it would work just the same as if you were charging from your computer or from a wall charger/dock. Theres a number of ways of going about getting a battery charger for your iPod. 1) Apple.com has some for sale, as does your local Apple Shop. 2) Ebay. "iPod Battery Charger" - Have bought one myself. works great. gets about two hours audio from 2 AA batteries. 3) You can make one yourself. Can be extremely simple, from just a couple batteries and a usb plug, to the iPod dock connector with a fancy case and some ingenious circuit work.... which every way you go. you can still listen to music from your iPod as well as charging it.
