Charge iPhone While Mac is Sleeping
Authored by: rprather12 on Oct 02, '07 06:23:35PM

Now I am very confused, again!

On the surface this seems like a great hint but after watching a thread on the Apple forum about charging your iPhone with an iPod charger I started checking my chargers.

The iPhone charger puts out 5 Volts. Makes sense since that is what is on a USB bus.

But an early iPod Firewire charger I have here puts out 12 Volts. This would seem to indicate to me that the FW port has 12 V on it. If so, then using FW to charge a 5V device wouldn't be a great idea.
