Will over voltage ruin my ipod? Answered

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.
