Limor, Once again your website has inspired me. Now that we have 4 iPhones, multiple versions of each of the iPod and 3 iPads, We spend an inordinate amount of time looking for outlets for chargers, chargers and ear buds. Based on the information you provided, I built a 4 plug USB charger. Two of the outlets will handle .5A and two will handle 1A. It’s a small project box with a voltage converter on one end and 4 female USB outlets on the side. I made it from my pile of salvaged electronic parts and your instruction on how Apple products charge. I figure I saved at least $100.00 by making it myself. Thanks!
