    Anyone else have this issue? I have a Pioneer iPod adapter for my car. It charges my 1st Gen iPhone without issue. The 3G on the other hand shows a message stating "charging is not supported".

    What gives? Are they really going to nickel and dime me for everything on this one?

    This has actually been out there for a while. Basically Apple stopped supporting firewire charging which is what a lot of companies used. There is a company that is making an adapter for it eventually.

    Your old charger used Firewire (12V), something that the new iPhone can't use, only USB (5V).

    Interesting. I figured they were all USB. Though I guess the 12V makes since given that its running off the vehicle's battery....
