Doesnt work on Iphone 3gs – Ultra-Mini USB Power Adapter/Charger with USB Data + Charging Cable for All iPod/iPhone 2G/3G Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Cheap!
Cons:
The hinges at the side of the plug will deform after the first insertion into the iphone 3gs. 1 hinge will not be able to retract back into the mid section and hence causing the plug to be released at an awkward angle with some difficulties. Beside the deformed hinges, i also found the edge of the metal sheet at the lip area is also slightly hooked out of position
Other:
To make the mating smoother, i had to use my dremel to remove the hinges and also any imperfections. After this, it works like a dime.
Bottomline:
I am from the connector industry and knows what i am talking about. Considering the low cost, i wouldnt expect much from this product. You just have to do some hands on fine tuning to get it work.
