Thread: Mod'ed base now charges 3G iPhone

    Default Mod'ed base now charges 3G iPhone
    Found a Griffin PowerJolt iPhone charger at BestBuy, and immediately took it apart



    Mated it to an iPhone dock, an after-market that I used with Gen I.
    Tricky soldering here. Used some epoxy to hold the wires



    Mated that back to my generic iPod holder in the Boxster, and wired it all, works well now.


    Charging and playing though Boxster head unit.

    Would it be difficult for me to mod the cable from my Alpine head unit to charge the 3G?

    I don't have the box or manual for mine anymore, and I'm not sure of the model, but the cable that I had installed on my CDA-9835 head unit won't charge or play music from my 3G iPhone, although it worked just ifne with my 1st generation iPhone.

    It's the CDE-9852. It plays the music fine, it just won't charge the 3G like it would with the first iPhone.

    I'd like to be able to use GPS in the car, but it drains the battery fast.

    If anyone finds a solution for Kenwood KCA-iP500 , send me a pm. Plays music fine, but won't charge.

    Do you have any instructions i could possibly follow to do this?
    It's only impossible if you quit.

    Default pinouts
    I would guess it will be a bit of a pain, as the ipod side of the connector is now gonna need 5v usb power:
