    If I get an iPhone I plan to place the dock near my PC in order to sync the unit.
    I will be using the device as my everyday wakeup alarm and therefore will need a way to charge the device while i am asleep. Right now I have USB chargers where i need them. What are my options should i purchase an iPhone?
    i.e. >USB>30 pin adaptors........additional stand alone 30 pin chargers, etc.

    Related....what is a good aftermarket source for quality charging accessories other than Apple?
    Thank you!

    It comes with a charger, but you'll want a second iPod/iPhone cable so you can leave one plugged into your computer.

    Thank you.
    My ipod works fine with my aftermarket cable hooked up to my computer....
    will the iphone be more discerning?

    Car adapter

    I didn't see a 12V car adapter on the apple store site.....
    What about charging options for the car?

    If it's a cable it should be fine, some third party chargers and docks might not work too well. Make sure anything you buy says made for iPhone on it.

    Edit:
    My girlfriend drives a WV the iPod connector doesn't charge the iPhone. You get a warning telling you that the accessory is not compatible. Give your current stuff a try and see if it works.

    Does it harm this type of battery to leave the phone in the charger overnight every night? I pretty much get it down under 50% everyday (most times more) and I charge it up for about 7 hours every night...
    Thank you for any information about this...
