iPod won't charge in your car?

Link: iPod won't charge in your car?

My iPod car adapter has great sound but won’t charge the iPhone 3G or any of the new nanos. The same problem also affects my Bose Sounddock. After a little research, it seems Apple removed the firewire-based charging capability from their latest products, and many older accessories that charge via the dock connector emulate a firewire connection. The passPORT from Scosche is a little box that has a female dock adapter on one side and a male on the other; it simply converts the firewire power into the pin and voltage configuration used by USB, which is supported by the newest Apple gear.
