refer to steps 2, 3, and 4 in Easy rechargable portable ipod/USB Recharger  to get the proper usb socket wiring.  also make sure the wire socket lego brick is put on the terminal correctly.

Thanks for reading this, and good luck on building it.  now, you can make a charger from anything, but I just chose this because I never play with my lego robot monkey anyway.
