USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a serial communications standard that provides a data communications connection and also features power delivery for USB device operation and/or recharging batteries. An iPod charger adheres to the USB standard specification and so can be used for other USB devices that support the same USB connectors. Convert an iPod charger USB connector to a mini USB connector so that it can be used to power mini USB devices.
Unplug the iPod or iPod Touch charger from the power socket.
Plug the USB A connector end of the iPod or iPod Touch charger into the USB A Female connector on a USB A Female to Mini B 5-pin Female Adapter.
Plug the mini B 5-pin male connector on a device that requires a mini USB connection into the mini B 5-pin female connector on the USB A Female to Mini B 5-pin Female Adapter. Verify that the USB device is charging (usually by reading the power LED on the outside of the device).
