    I have a problem with charging my ipod touch using a wall charger similar to this one

    After 6 hours of charging it only charged about 60% of the battery >.< + when I charge and lock my ipod the big charging battery Icon doesn't come up either( but maybe that's only when charging with the computer ? ). A friend of mine has the same wall charger for his ipod nano and I never heard him complain about anything.
    Never had any problems with the charger using my old mp3 player either.

    Anyone having similar problems ?

    I don't think that's the case since it charges fine using the USB of my pc... =/ Maybe it's because I jailbroke it or something. I think i'll try to borrow a different wall charger from a friend or something. Thx for the advice tho ^^

    Best Buy Solution

    I suggest you goto Best Buy and buy a Digital Life Outfitters iPod Wall Charger. Its about $15-$20, making it slightly pricier, but trust me, it works. I've been jailbroken on all firmwares till 1.1.3 and it works on all of them. If that one doesn't work, then maybe you might have a problem with the iPod cable port itself, and I can't help you there.

    Good Luck!

    Install Battery.app or HWInfo.app it tells you the power it's getting from the charger/plug so if it's too low you know it's either the plug or charger *shrugs*

    USB charger

    I bought a travel carger from techfocus online - works fine.. 1/3 of the cost of a apple item and looks the same!
