    I need to know how much volts i need to charge my it3g. i bought a solar charger and have an usb input and a volts selector behind,
    i have 4 options, 9v, 6.4v, 5.4v and 4.5v.
    When i put 5.4 sometimes i can see the charge sign and sometimes i see a msg saying that this accessory cant charge.
    What voltage i need?

    It's using USB specs (aka: 5V), except it fast-charges at 1A if you're using an AC Adapter or 500mA with plain-vanilla USB. Which charger are you using? Look for a USB option, if it has one... since that's the safest choice.

    Hi,
    I accidently charged my iPod with 12 Volts instead of 5 Volts. I purchased a cheap system that supposes to provide a power charge, as well as, load speakers.
    My iPod is dead once I placed it in the charger.
    Is it possible to fix it? Such as change an internal fuse? Or there is no such thing in the iPod.. and the motherboard is busted now?
    Please help.

    Thanks,

    Mu
