    I apologize in advance if this question has been answered. I apologize in advance if its a dumb question.

    I have a 30gb video iPod (not sure what gen, but I got it for Christmas '05). I am wondering whether the AC charger for that iPod will work for the iPhone.

    I see no apparent reason that it wouldn't. The cord is the same. The plug is different, but its a plug.

    I just thought I would ask in case someone knows my assumption to be wrong.

    TIA

    I don't see why it wouldn't work. If it fits in the port correctly it should be good to go.

    That's what I've been thinking. I just wanted to ask the crowd to make sure there wasn't a "OMG don't do it i totally fried my iPhone doing that" response out there. :D

    You won't fry your iPhone but it may not work. They've changed their chargers since then. This is the same reason some accessories don't work with the iPhone.

    Ah, so I guess if I get a charge using it I'm good. Otherwise I am going to have to pony up for a second charger.

    It works fine. My dog chewed on my phone wire and it stopped working. I used the iPod one for a couple weeks, but just upgraded to 3GS so I'm back to the normal wire again.
