    Hi! I just made an Altoids iPod charger. I used a female USB port and 4 AA batteries holder. It perfectly works with any device that plugs with USB exept iPhone and iPod Touch. It can charge my iPod Nano, my digital camera, it powers up my homemade fan but not my iPhone. Do someone here knows why? Thanks in advance

    I remember reading something like this in Popular Science. I'm eager to see a picture.

    yeah a picture would help. BTW, are you using a new cable, because it might have to be a new cable to fit into the itouch?

    That doesn't matter. I use USB cables from older iPod models interchangeably with the newer ones.

    Perhaps the voltage is not correct. This is odd because an iPod nano works, among other things, and not the iPod touch.

    No worries; this is an open discussion with no apologies required.
