    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.

    Thanks!

    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.

    Looks like it is only $15 after discounts and rebates right now @ Circuit City.

    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..... :)
