Yes, the iPhone and Touch are a bit like that. It's not obvious what makes a charger work with those two - seems pot luck.

Anything that works with them will charge any iPod though.

It depends on what charger you have. A genuine Apple one should work, but the port was redesigned slighly on he latest generation, and some third party connectors don't work (I had to send a dock back to Amazon myself).

I have an early Apple dock which will not work with either my old iPod Touch or my iPhone...

The connector's the same. What changed was that the 2G Touches and 3G iPhones need a different charging voltage than the earlier devices.

So you need to specifically look for iPhone 3G or iPod Touch 2G support. Old generic chargers use the wrong voltage and will not work.

The charger with a firewire port on it will not charge the latest iPods anymore. The newest model it works with as far as I know is the first generation iPod touch.

The charger with the USB port on it should work fine.

I take it I won't do any damage trying my iPod charger with my iTouch? It isn't an apple one it's one I bought from Woolworths.

The USB connectors work fine.

This dock doesn't seem to work with iPT or iPh. It works with a first gen Nano.

It just won't do anything. You could always take it back to ... oh wait :-(

I'm probably going to get one of the Apple USB chargers (19) as it will charge our original iPod shuffles as well as (I'll double check) my Touch.

No, it'll show a message saying the device isn't compatible.

There are some on eBay that are quoting that they work with the new Touch. Lot cheaper at between 4 - 6 including postage. Lynn

That's obviously a lot cheaper, but will it work? You could buy 3 or 4 different ones to try and still be cheaper than Apple of course...

I think I'll give it a try, I'll report back on whether it works or not :-) If it doesn't I'll send it back! Lynn

Do you do all your syncing through iTunes? I think Apple somehow led me to MoileMe for the syncing of Calendar and it would make more sense to do it through iTunes. Lynn

Yes, mine's syncing through iTunes. But if I change something on the Touch I think it goes straight to MobileMe. (I am not 100% sure though.)

I've disabled the push notifications for calendar, which is the other half of MobileMe "syncing", but only because a) it sucks battery and b) I don't change my calendar that often.
