    hey guys i had a zune 30g and i bought an charger for it that allows me to plug the zune to via usb. it's was not really zune specific, it's not like a generic device, b/c it has no brand name on it but i think they claimed it as a zune device so it can sell.

    my question is that since i can also plug the ipod touch to that ac charger, can i use it? will it damage my ipod in anyway? it's inout is 100-240v. i mean they zune 30g take the same voltage as the ipod if not less right? can i use it without worrying?

    I think as long as it's 5V output it's okay. Usually USB chargers are 5V.

    You can use any USB to AC adapter to charge an iPod touch.
    I use my Amazon Kindle 2's AC adapter to charge my iPod

  5. If it is the OEM zune USB brick charger then yes. I have been using this charger for both my second and fourth gen iPod.

    My charger was from the zune av kit, which I also got for my zune 30gig.

    I use the charger that came with my logitech mouse (that I don't actually use with the mouse) and I use the music power encore charger available at Amazon. I don't think there is issue with using 3rd party chargers on an apple device since I believe apple's website says you can plug it into any USB charger.

    I don't think you will void your warranty by using a charger other than the one sold at the apple store.
