    Maybe if you had the right USB to ipod cable. I don't think such a think exists (female mini USB to ipod). I don't know much about ipods, but the current should be just fine.

    I would think the end of the ipod cable would be a male end and the end of the BB charger is a male end as well. That might work in San Francisco, but you would have to find some sort of adaper to connect the two.

    Ipod plugs and BB plugs are completely different. An ipod plug won't go into a blackberry... just as a blackberry plug won't go into an iPod.

    Maybe its different here in Aus, the BB adapter part that goes into the powerpoint has a USB socket on it (like a n normal usb mouse or keyboard) then it the other end has a mini plug.

    see picture

    So it would go

    Ipod to ipod cable(which is USB) into back of BB CHarger

    Hmm. OK, you have a charger that I've never seen before. I would check the Ipod charger specs first. The BB charger should be putting out 5.0V and 400-500mA. As long as the Ipod jives with that, you're good to go!

    Make sure that its the correct voltage. If it is and the usb fits, you should be all good. I charge my bb with my PSP power cord at home and it hasnt blown up yet.

    I know the power adaptor you have. It plugs into the wall, but instead of a cable coming out of it there is a usb jack. I would check the voltages before plugging anything in.
