How safe is it to use a third party, non-Apple charger on my Nano? We've had it for years, since the iPod Classic, and I've always used it for charging iPod's. I plug in the original iPod cable to the adapter and then plug that into the mains. I've been using it to charge my Nano. Should I be? Can it ruin the battery? Or is it safe to use?

I need it because I'm going away on holiday, so will need the adapter, and since it's a three pin plug, I'll need to use a European mains adapter as well.

Can I do this? Or do I need to fork out 25 for an 'official' one?

3ed party are fine in most cases. Quality and construction is all over the map. It's not going to ruin the battery since all the control/monitoring circuits for the battery relocated in the device.
