    Make wall charger for iPod Touch 2g(or other).

    You need:
    1. Any wall charger for anything, but charger must have OUT: 5V(+-0,1), 500-1000mA(if you get less, battery will charge not to 100%(battery icon will blink)).
    I used samsungs phone charger:

    It seems for me to be not so hard, just interesting.
    30$ is easier?(it is worth 5$)
    I think you still asking money from your parents. I bought my iPod with my own money, and i am not going to spend same count of money on iPod acessories, just becouse Apple making business on incompatibility with normal 3-d party acessories.

    Sorry for this loud post =).
    I respect your opinion.

    It think if you just give it a shot it will teach you something. Of course if you dont have instruments there is nothing you can do. I just wrote this tutorial, becouse I think this is interesting and useful and wanted to share it.

    it works with it...
    just use the original dock cable that came with your iPod...

    it 2G comes with a thingy that can only detect a nonapple cable, not the USB port (or else all your non apple computers with non app USB ports would be useless)

    so
