It may not have the voltages on the usb data lines required to make the iphone charge. Some usb chargers just supply the 5v while the iphone needs specific voltages on two other pins to recognize its hooked up to a charger.
Will it power anything else via usb?

Solved it, just modified the sync cable and attached a button between the green wire and red power wire so each time i connect it to the charger i just switch on the button and it stars charging and switch it back off and it stays charging bt i have to do it all the time i connect it. Its better than nothing
