You never know when you’ll need to bust a move on the go.

NetMedia’s kickAMP-40 fits perfectly in your pocket for just such an occasion. Just attach speakers and your iPod or other audio source to this tiny amp. For all of that gear, it sounds like you need some pretty big pockets—or possibly a sack. We’re not sure how deep those pockets need to be, since no pricing was announced.

The end result, however, is that kickAMP will kick the sound up a notch.

The 40-watt amp (hence, the kickAMP-40) is about the size of a deck of cards. It packs in a mini Class-D 40-watt stereo amp that allows portable devices to drive audio through conventional speakers.

Other specs include a 99dB signal-to-noise ratio. It’s definitely not a necessity, but should also be pretty easy to carry at 5.6 ounces.

Editor’s Note: We got pricing! The kickAMP-40 retails for $89.99.
