    Default [USB power adapter] Confused about older USB ipod adapter (MA592LL/A) compatibilty

    Hi all, please help me figure out which power adapter could be used safely with iPhone. Between the extremes - the real one at Apple for $29 + tax & s/h, and cheap lookalikes on ebay for $1 + shipping - there's this reasonably priced adapter I'm trying to make up my mind about: Genuine USB ipod adapter, model MA592LL/A -- costs around $18 on ebay... What's holding me back on this one is that it's NOT the same model as the one on Apple's site (model MB051LL/A).. This one seems to be the OLDER pre-iphone version. To add to my confusion Amazon says it is compatible with iphone, while Best Buy here lists everything (1 gen, 2gen ipods) as compatible but says nothing about iPhone.. Plus I couldn't find any voltage/amperage specs for that model... Do you think it'll be absolutely safe to use this model for iphone? Your advice is much appreciated!!

    It's a USB charger so it will work. Buy.com lists it as a 1A charger so it should be identical to the iPhone charger. Any USB charger should be absolutely safe for the iPhone, it's the old Firewire chargers that are questionable.

    Firewire ones will work as long as it's more than 5V+ and less than 30V+

    So 28V and less is definetely fine as long as it's connected to the firewire power inputs and not the usb inputs.

    From what people experienced, charging from firewire is faster than charging from USB for obvious reasons. My experience agrees.
