    Hey,

    I want to buy one of these because I don't really want to travel with my laptop just to charge my ipod.

    The reviews on the apple store aren't very good though.

    Do they work or are they sketchy? Somebody said something on another thread that suggested maybe they shorten the battery life?

    Any experiences with this?

    The ones apple sells for $30 are apple brand so they cost that much(dunno why) You can basicly use any usb adapter to charge ur ipod

    I have one and I love it. Had no problems at all and has worked when my computer has been unable to charge it for some reason.

    Works fine, but so does basically any wall-usb adapter. I used a cheap $5 one to charge my iPod for a while when I had one.

    I don't know, but my Kodak camera has a wall adapter that uses USB to charge, so I got lucky on that!

    Just get any USB power adapter, they all work.

    They work great! They get a little hot but all chargers do.. I have realized though that my Griffin charger does charge my 3GS and 3G a little faster... But as far as getting the phone a good charge Apple chargers and almost any good, known name brand will do the job.
