Currently Being ModeratedDec 4, 2008 2:51 PM (in response to cdupree)The usb charging cable included with all current iPods(except shuffle) and iPhones are the same. I use the same cable to charge my iPhone and 4th generation iPod. Older iPod firewire cables will not charge the iPhone 3g.1.5GHz PB, 733MHz Quicksilver as a remote backup server,, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iPhone 3G, 40gig 4G iPod, 15gig 3G iPod

It still bums me that they dropped the firewire support. It was so much faster.G5 dual 2gig, G4 500, Mac OS X (10.4.10), Avid, FCP
Currently Being ModeratedDec 30, 2008 9:14 AM (in response to Grant Greene)Just want to confirm... Are you saying that any usb charging cable from any generation ipod nano or iphone will work with any generation ipod nano or iphone? And this is true whether I use the cable plugged into the usb power adaapter or into a computer? Are they all compatible from a syncing perspective as well? I've got three different generations of nanos and two iPhones. If I knew that it doesn't matter what cable I use with what device, I'd be a lot happier. Thanks!1, 2, and 4 generation nano and iPhone 3G, Windows Vista

Also, this prevents most car integrated iPod chargers from working on the phone as well. It's up to the vendor to update it.17" MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Santa Rosa, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 31, 2008 5:12 AM (in response to cdupree)Hiya,
After a couple of trials, I have gone with a cigarette lighter plug with a couple of USB sockets on it.
I found a black one best that 'hinges' to allow ueasy connection of the usb lead. (sorry don't know make)
This means it is very easy to recharge using the normal Apple white USB lead.
I also carry around a Mains Plug with a USB socket in it. That way I am never caught short if at a hotel and the iPhone is running low. Sometimes this happens after using the Maps a lot when travelling.
Hope that helps as an idea!PC, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedJan 9, 2009 11:41 AM (in response to cdupree)You notice the USB doesnt charge as fast though.
I know for a fact these work with ALL iPod & iPhones and they are pretty cheap
Hope this helps. Either that or amazon has some good ones my friend tells me.Dell XPS 720, Windows XP Pro, Duall 8800's baby!
