    Can I use the iPod 4th Generation charger (the one with the adapter and firewire cable) with the iPod Nano?

    Thanks.

    Firewire vs USB

    a quick side question: which is better to charge your iPod with? the firewire or the USB?:confused:

    I find Firewire to be more efficient if I'm also transferring music, but otherwise I don't really notice a difference. Of course, newer iPods can use Firewire only for charging (no transferring) so I guess it's a moot point for them anyway. :)

    Firewire. I don't remember how, or why, I just remember hearing that firewire charges iPods faster...

    Firewire charges iPods faster because it is 12V. USB is limited to 5V. They both carry the same Amperes so the total capacity is higher with Firewire.
