    I have an 80g iPod video that plugs into the comp via USB. I have a white Belkin car charger that charges via the bottom iPod connector.

    Can I use the iPhone 3GS with this charger if it worked for the iPod? I don't wanna blow anything.

    It should work, yes, as they both have the same 30-pin connector.

    It may or may not work. I have a Belkin iPod Charging Kit that I bought last christmas, that only works with the iPods. I went to my cottage and was glad to have a car charger with me, but when I plugged it into the car charger, a message on the screen said "This accessory is not made for iPhone". So I had to buy a new car charger. :(

    So if you still have the packaging for that charger, check to see if theres a "Works with iPhone" badge. If not, it won't work. Although it told me I could turn on Air Plane mode for it to work, (to get rid of interference supposedly) but that's pointless.:p

    Ok I can handle a message saying it's not compatible, as long as it won't ruin my iPhone. Thanks.
