So it turns out a white onion is not only good for salsa, but good for charging iPods too. Here is a video showing you how to charge an iPod with an onion, Gatorade and USB cable.
I knew those electro-lights are good for something. For those not interested in watching a 3 minute video here is the down-n-dirty:
put two holes on either side of your onion with screwdriver
soak the thing in Gatorade until most is gone (about 1 cup worth)
use the iPod USB cable and push in the USB connector into the onion.
Your iPod will then turn on and charge shortly there after. So for about 1 cup of gatoraid soaked into the onion will get you about 30 minutes of charge time.
