Pig out on tunes with iHog speakers

Speakal's squealing speakers for iPod and iPhone can oink out sound for 10 hours on a battery charge.

Speakal has gone whole hog with its popular porcine speaker system, the iPig . Because bigger is apparently always better, meet the iHog.

The iHog takes any iPod or iPhone with a dock connector and makes oink-oinks with four speakers, a 20-watt subwoofer, and more than 28 watts of sound. It also has a 3.5mm jack to connect to a TV, game consoles, or other devices.

Though it weighs around 4 pounds, it's designed to be portable, and its rechargeable lithium ion batteries can power it for 10 hours.

You can touch the hog's ears to change the volume, and its head for playback control. There's also a remote.

The iHog comes in pink and white and is selling for $119.99 until September 30, and $139.99 afterward.
