    I am looking to make a charger for my iPod touch which I will incorporate probably in my truck and have it run off say, 12VDC. I have a thread in the 2G section about my making of the charger.

    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=127148

    But I have a question pertaining to a question in that thread. Does anybody have a wall charger or something that gives the out put current and voltage need to charge the touch? Typically on the back of the transformer (the big block that typically plugs into the wall) it'll give and input of so many volts and so much current, as well as the output current and voltage.

    If someone could help me out with this it'd be much appreciated.

    OK, I have one of those AC to USB Power Adapter for the Ipod Touch.

    The Input is 0.2A
    and output is 5.2v +- 5% and 700mA

    But I don't think you can use just a resister as the Ipod Touch charging current may change and hence the voltage. You need a step down regulator.
