    The iPhone 4 uses special charging algorithm and won't accept many third party chargers and cables... There is nothing you can do to fix it

    It's hit and miss, I have a iPod car charger which works with my iPhone 4 the majority of the time, sometimes it says charging isn't compatible, I just take it out and plug it back in and it works. However I used to have a home charger that wouldn't charge it at all. Best to get "Works with iPhone or Made for iPhone" chargers.
