    Hi Guys,
    Does anyone know if it is possible to modify the original iphone cradle so that it will charge the latest versions?:confused:

    This might also apply similarly to the ipod interface, which also does not charge the latest models.

    I would imagine that the power is available, and 'just' needs strapping across to the correct pins? :crazy:

    TIA

    Correct - I took a chance on a cheapish ebay jobbie, and whilst it greatly improves the reception, it would be better if it charged the phone. Still, there may be a fix - will maybe take it apart anyway when I get the time and inclination!!

    The charging voltages are different so be careful.
