    I have my AC charger from my 4th Gen iPod and of course my USB cable that came with my iPod Touch. I was wondering which one is more efficient for charging, that is which one charges my ipod faster? Thanks

    Personally, I use the AC Wall Plug because if i'm in bed, and I want to play on my iPod but it has no charge, then I can simply plug it into the mains and voilla!

    I need to pick up an AC charger.
    Also, a car adapter.

    Any suggestions on brands/prices?

    I always use my AC charger to charge my ipod. I'm just not sure which way charges it faster.

    Sorry for bumping this old topic but I had a Griffin Power Block (I think that is what it is called) that I purchased for my use with my Nano and it works with my Touch as well. Very good to have on the go.

    Can't really say if it charges faster than via USB though.

    I lost my last Griffin charger but bought another one on ebay for only $10 including shipping

    . Much cheaper than the $40 retail price here in Canada.
