    I don't know about Belkin, but there are some good ones out there.

    All third party chargers work for the iPod Touch 1G, but not all of them work for the 2G.

    2G has a different kind of battery, I believe. What I have found with a lot of 3rd party chargers is that they charge at the same rate, but don't charge all the way up to 100%.

    I have the Belkin one. It works great, and is much cheaper than the official Apple one.

    Isn't it that as long as the output and input rates are the same for the chargers, they should work well? This is the only thing scaring me, the Belkin one I bought for my 2G works, but that one was expensive. I got a third-party one (from my anti-Apple days) which was my old MP3 player's. I'm contemplating if I should even plug my Touch 2G into that, in fear of frying the back. :$
