    I had a usb wall charger and I plugged my ipod into it but it doesnt show up as charging, no battery icon or anything. Just doesn't work. It charges my cellphone fine though, so must not be standard voltage or something I dunno.


    Anyhow I am looking for a wall and a car cig adapter charger for ipod touch 3rd gen. Everywhere I look I see sites for 2g but some have parenthesis warning that is may not work with 3rd gen or couple that say not for 3rd gen specifically. No idea why, I thought the 2 as far as power is concerned are identical.

    Anyhow and tips would be appreciated. I found this site.
    http://store.apple-touch.com/content/accessories/5-17--5712.htm supposedly sells the wall adapter for 5 bucks, but I emailed the site and they said it wont work with 3rd gen ipod touch.

    So Im like uh wtf? hehe, help me!


    -grin-

    thanks

    yea was hoping for cheaper alternative, tons of sites have them from 4.99 to 19.99 even one has a dual ac/car plug adapter but all listed as ipod touch 2g and they got like (may not work with 3rd gen) or (not compatible with 3rd gen)

    i cant find a site that offerd ipod touch 3g accessories. Apple store is way overpriced for it's stuff.

    ah well

    what is green dot? i found one place has http://www.cellphoneshop.net/whtrchforapi2.html that for 4 dollars.

    but yea none of the sites mention what a green dot is. Is it specific for ipods?

    dont know anything about that stuff, I had an old usb wall charger that came with a cellphone and i plugged the usb cord into it and nothing ever happened. Glad it didnt fry my ipod dunno why it wont work

    apple had 2 versions, one with green dot and not. the one that dont have it have a possibility of the prongs falling off. thats why they starting shipping with green dot that dont fall off
