    I ordered this from Amazon before the iPhone 3G was out and people realized it wasn't compatible with all USB chargers. I know the mini one works, but has anyone tried this with their new 3G.

    It hasn't shipped yet, and i will cancel it if it doesn't work

    Hopefully someone has tried this.

    I was looking into buying that. If you decide to go through with it and try it out, let us know if it works.

    I must be missing something in the description because I can't see what drives the high price on that one. It comes with an iPod cable for $112 but what looks to be the same item without the iPod cable (dock cable) is only $50 and that's a local price (Circuit City if in the US) so I can't see why it's more than twice the price with just the addition of the cable.

    I actually went looking for the model without the dock cable at my Circuit City. While they were out of stock, they did have the APC UPB10 on closeout for only $24.99! I snagged it up right away! Again, it doesn't come with a dock cable but worked just fine with the cable that came with my 3G. This model also scored a bit better in the iLounge reviews. Amazon still wants over $60 for it here.

    I e-mailed Kensington and they said NO

    but a lot of things have been working even though they aren't supposed to and i got it for like $36 so it was a good deal and i'd hate to have to pass on it

    I just got the little $36 one that clips onto the bottom of the iPhone. Works perfectly.

    Just got the Kensington 38021 as stated above and confirmed that it works with the 3G iPhone. Picked it up at Circuit City for $44.95 and got a $30 mail in rebate, which is $15 + tax. Not too bad for some extra insurance..... :)
