I use a belkin Ipod charger off my rear 12v. You need to have about 5.5 to
4.5 volts to properly charge an Ipod. Same voltage as a USB port on your
computer. If you are going to do this, I would suggest and noise filter too.
I get a lot of noise from my alertnator.

I've had two FM modulators die for use with my iPod; an iTrip and then a
Belkan. I believe I killed the Belkan by not being gentle with the wire
where it enters the plug-in adaptor.
My Question: Can I simply wire the Belkan directly to the rear "cigarette
lighter" outlet, (having chopped off the plug that goes into the "cig
lighter outlet") or is there something in the actual plug that changes
voltage or other parameters essential to the life of my iPod?


P.S. Midwest Electronics is who I referred to in my post for repairing 
stock radios, especially on/off-volume knobs. Worked for me.
