Picture of How To Fix A Broken iPod Charging Cord
My iPod is actually almost dead while I am making this instructable, and actually does die before I finish it.

Here's the problem! After about two years of constant use, way into the wee hours of the night, my iPod cord broke right at the base of the plug. I should throw in the towel, accept that I had a good run with this cord, and go buy a new one right? WRONG!

Any chance this would work with a MacBook charger??

Hunter M4 is correct it died during the repair, once fixed it worked fine. It still worked up until I upgraded to the iPod 5. I posted this two years ago, so cords weren't 50cent apiece or at least good ones weren't . Glad this helped some people , wish I knew why you felt the need to continue to question this instructable

my ipod was sitting around for 2 years bec i was so pissed off that the damn charger is so freakin expensive. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! i'm charging it right now and i feel so happy yey! :)

Dude, stuff works for some, not for others - and so glad you got the plus side!

but...if the repair worked, then why didn't you charge the ipod and take the pictures needed?
Because it died in the middle of them fixing the charger. They charged their phone when the charger was functional and then took pictures of the finished product

K, know what..I'll believe you where millions wouldn't...but this is a year later....

Because I have the iTouch 5, but I got this cord when I had the 4. So I wanted it all back together before I plugged my adapter and iPod back into it. It works, I'm actually using it right now

What had happened was one of the wires had snapped. Sugru can't fix that

Uh, sugru it. Sounds like a lot of work that sugru could have done faster and safer.
