    Hi!
    I just bought below USB-charger off eBay (I'm going to do some travelling and I'm not feeling for having my laptop with me):
    http://pc-link.biz/pc/pausbeu.jpg

    On the ebay-auction it says it should fit to any iPod, and I thought so too since USB have a standard voltage, however when I connect it to my iPod it doesn't react (the battery icon doesn't change). Also, I tried it for an hour or so without any noticable increase in battery-status.

    Does anyone know if the output (5VDC, 300mA) is to low? Or does it just take longer time to charge the battery?

    Have you tried charging other devices to see if they react ?

    nope.. doesn't have any other USB-chargable devices here at the moment. I'm doing an exchange semester in Germany and did not bring more things than necessary...
    [EDIT] I tried connecting my camera with the sync cable and the camera LED went green...

    and I don't have a Multimeter here either, so I can't check the voltage...

    Perhaps you could ask a friend if you could try charging something they have... as perhaps the device is faulty ?

    iPot - short for iPod Touch... take a look at www.ipodtouchfans.com, think it's the general abbreviation there...
