    Is there a way to fool the iPod into thinking the charger that is plugged in is supported to charge it, or is it a hardware issue? Can it be done by a jailbreak?

    I had a cheap 10 dollar one from a while ago, and it worked fine on my 2g for a couple of days, but then it just stopped. and i cant tell if its an issue in the charger because mine is the only ipod in the house =/

    I wouldn't suggest it. I've heard lots of stories of a fried ipod battery.

    Well I just bought an apple charger for 5$ from E-bay and it works just fine.
    So I suggest you to buy one from e-bay as well

    Well, I bought one and it works fine, both the wall charger and the car charger. Any generic charger should work...the deal is in the ipod connector on the usb cable.
