Will over voltage ruin my ipod?

I am thinking about making a wall charger for my ipod touch, but I need to know if plugging it into the wall will harm it.

You only want to feed your ipod a REGULATED voltage - I believe since it charges from 5 volts, you want to feed it 5 volts. If you go over, you will risk destroying your toy. That would be sad. The charger may also need a resistor over the data lines to tell the ipod that it's plugged into a charger.

IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, YOU WILL RUIN YOUR iPOD!

Just a friendly warning for you : ) .
Seriously though, if you're just trying to plug it into the wall, you'll probably end up electrocuting yourself and frying your iPod.

Here's a good guide for you...
