My ipod touch won't turn on. Answered

I was making an ipod charger instructable, it used 4 AA's. I tested it out and now my ipod wont turn on. I tried every combination of wires, because they had weird colors. I read an ipod takes 12 volts, and has a voltage regulator, did i fry something else?

An ipod charges off of 5 volts. You may have fried it.

Good luck! Haha, and for future reference, anything that charges by USB is 5V.

Haha, depending on your warranty they might not even ask.
