    I bought a gizmo at Brookstone today. It is a 4-way charger for the ipod.
    1. USB connection
    2. 110v wall connection.
    3. automobile 12 v plug.
    4. It take a 9 volt battery which charges the ipod.

    Does anyone know if a 9v has enough mah's to be of any use.
    I don't know how much "oomph" the itouch battery has.

    here's a page with the different batteries of the iPod's and the iPhone. No number for the IPoT though, but it's 1400 mAh for the iPhone.

    Non-rechargeable batteries must float at about 500-600 mAh, so you'd need several of them.

    It doesn't make any sense with a battery, if you ask me

    But the rest is handy, especially if they put adapters for other countries.

    yes, it will work. I've built my own. it take 5v from a usb port to charge an ipod, or other gizmo. 5 volts is how much a usb port puts out.

    Unless you want to damage you iPod, i suggest you do not charge it directly from a 9V battery. Use voltage regulator to step it down to 5V, which is what USB outputs.

    I presume that is what is going on in this multi device I bought. Ie. 9v>>5v.
    My real question is.....does a 9V store enough energy to charge an itouch?

    The number I haven't been able to find is the mAH for the itouch.
