    USB-to-Cigarette Lighter/or ACC line.

    im looking for a way to charge my Ipod Touch 2nd gen in my 2002 VW GTI, and from what i can tell, i was either gonna wire in a generic usb - to - car adapter charger thingy(idunnoz), or use a Voltage regulator LM7805 to wire it all up. Halp?

    There are USB adapters for the car cigarette lighter. You can disassemble that to reduce teh bulk, leaving just a USB port.
    Plug in your iPod and charge away.

    If you're crafty, fabricate a dock for the iPod.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
