    I'm looking for a cheap USB wall charger from Europe for ages. There always are 3 problems:
    -Or it's too expensive (I'm not paying 30$....)
    -It's USA or UK only
    -It's not for the ipod touch 2G

    I've been looking on Ebay, and I've found some interesting cheap adapters there. Something like http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/USB-AC-WALL-HOME-CHARGER-ADAPTER-FOR-iPHONE-3G-IPOD-EU_W0QQitemZ150308381860QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item150308381860&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1399|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318 or http://cgi.benl.ebay.be/USB-Cable-EU-Wall-Charger-for-Apple-iPhone-iPod-Nano-3G_W0QQitemZ350119138026QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item350119138026&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1399|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318 The output voltage/Amperage is correct, but it doesn't say if it's compatible with the ipod touch 2g. It does says it's compatible with the iphone 3G? Does that mean it is also compatible with the ipod touch 2G? (since both the iphone 3g and the ipod touch 2G don't support firewire charging anymore.)

    Anyone with any experiences concerning cheap 'hongkong' usb chargers? Please let me know...

    HK, Hongkong.... I think your iPod is going to get damaged faster that way....

    Works!

    Received it, works like a charm... Looks exactly the same as the original charger, it even has a ipod logo/'sticker' (designed by apple, california) etc. on it...

    If it works and it charges, should I worry my iPod could get damaged somehow??

    I mean, it only cost 4€ transport included

    I haven't yet bought anything like this for my touch, but I had one of these for my old Creative Zen.

    It cost me an entire $2 and it hasn't yet failed me.

    the 500mA works / should work fine for charging ipods and other mp3 palyers - some devices need more mA

    to the cheap prices: these products are not certificated by european standards - so I think they COULD but not have to harm devices
