I have a ipod nano that I'd like to get a wall charge for (ie mains power charger).

The price of the official Apple product stuns me, so I'm wondering if there are any cheaper versions that wont blow-up my nano...?

Thoughts?

To charge my iPod Touch I use a USB wall charger from DSE

and a cheap iPod cable from DealExtreme

 (I haven't tried this cable for syncing to PC though)

$19.98 + $2.40 = NZ$22.38 is a lot cheaper than using the official products and despite the cheapness of those two items, I haven't had any issues yet

Go Hawks!

There is also a dual version of that to supply two devices at once (handy if your phone can also use USB to charge.
