    Alpine Ipod adapter doesnt charge my Ipod Touch... Is there a way round it?

    As above realy, I have an Alpine DVD head unit with the Ipod interface box fitted,
    I used to use my old Nano in the car but now use an Ipod touch , The interface will work with the Touch but doesnt charge it like the Nano
    Is there a way around this??

    How old is it? the Alpine I mean?

    I have fitted a few recently and they don't charge if connected to the Ipod/Iphone on startup, but if you start the car first and then attach the Iphone/Ipod it starts charging after a short while. The latest Ipod/Iphones have a huge current draw on connection and can kill an interface.

    The older Alpines certainly had issues with charging.

    Its an oldish Alpine,
    Somebody told me that a company called "connect2" or something did a conversion lead??
    I cant seem to find anything.
    I also have the Iphone 4s but dont use this for music but i tested it and it doesnt charge this either.

    OK so it might be one of the older firewire charging types and you need a converter to make it upto date.

    Never used one myself, but I believe they do exist.

    Maybe something like this....
