I have heard mixed reports on the 2nd Gen Touch and the Sound Dock Portable. I am pretty certain that the old Sound Dock does not charge the Touch while it is in the dock from everything that I have read. The question I have and I am sure others are questioning is if the Portable unit charges the Touch. I am guessing this also includes the Sound Dock II. Supposedly Bose changed the dock but I just want a confirmation from someone that actually owns a second gen Touch and either the Portable or II model Sound Dock that it actually charges while playing. Bose's website says it is compatible but I keep reading reports that it is a known issue. Thanks for any insight.
