My purpose is to recharge my iPod on a nomadic Powerbank or USB port of a notebook on the go. This cable, contrary to what it says, can not charge your iPod (mine = Classic 80GB 6g) on any charger !! If the charger is not compatible, these cables will not help you! Some cables outweigh resistance in their connector for compatibility, here it is not the case! So too expensive for what it is !!
