    I don't think you can use Firewire to charge your devices anymore. Firewire just transfers files faster. It doesn't charge faster.

    i charge my ipod touch with a wall charger that uses a firewire cable all the time. It works great. I dont think you can use that cable with a pc anymore though

    All iPods charge firewire except iPod touch 2G.
    Firewire charges at same speed.
