Does something like this exist? Here's what I want to do. Connect a USB cable to my AC power adapter/other powersupply. I want to then plug in this cable with a "pass through" style dock connector so as to power my iPod, while allowing me to plug in a second device to the dock connector that was passed through(such as the camera adapter).

Any thoughts on how I could do this?

Something like a 4 or 7 port powered USB hub that's not plugged into your computer?



EDIT: Nevermind. I understand what you are asking. You want a pass through port built into the dock right?

This iPod dock also is a 5 port usb hub: http://www.drbott.com/prod/db.lasso?code=2577-TSYN

No, you're missing the point. I don't need 2 USB ports, in essence, I need 2 dock connectors. If you understand what I mean by a pass through cable, you should understand what I'm trying to accomplish.

I want this but only with a male dock connector on one side and a female dock connector on the other side. with the cable running away from it having the regular male USB:

I think it comes with the auto charger. I didn't see just the cable alone.
