    Doesn't seem like it. Got pretty good reviews.

    I'd totally snag a few if I could resell them for $5 each :D

    You're not actually buying it from AMAZON, you're buying it from an amazon.com merchant, which is actually a very different thing.

    It's not "from" Amazon, it is from Eforcity Corp, Arcadia CA, who are advertising on Amazon.

    Ummm... what Moviecutter said... :)

    To charge my iPod, I went to Fry's electronics and bought an unbranded USB port for $4. All it has is a wall plug, and a USB port on it, and it provides the standard voltage of an iPod charger, just doesn't say Apple or iPod on it :D So it was cheap, and works great! Seriously people, companies like to slap iPod on the product and raise the price tag.

    Yeah, like the Monster headphone splitter, or any tape adapter that's white instead of gray...
