    I have a really old iPod classic charger from... 3-4 years ago. I'm wondering if it would work with my iPod touch 1G?

    It fits into it perfectly and it shows it's charging, but I'm wary of actually using it to charge because what if its power output is higher than the iPod touch can take?

    Any information including links or a starting point would be appreciated.

    You should be okay. As far as I know all iPod chargers are rated at 1000mAh. I also used my old iPod photo charger with my 1G iPod touch.

    My old charger works with my iPod touch 2G. I lost the old USB cord for it, though, so I use the one that came with my touch.

    I use my dock from my Classic iPod for both my iPhone and Touch... Never had any problems (other than the iPhone comng up with a message stating that the accessory was not made to work with the iPhone - but I get that on my speaker dock and FM Transmitter - never done me any harm!)

    Thanks all you lovely people. Off to charge my iPod touch and hope it doesn't blow up and/or gain sentience and electrocute me.

    I think it should do just fine with ur iPod touch 1G, mate... As long as the charger is not some stupid China-made product (which nearly KO'ed my touch!), everything should be a-okay...
