How to Charge an iPod Nano Without a Computer
While traveling, you might want to bring your iPod Nano with you. If you use your computer at home to charge your iPod, you may need an alternate charging method when you’re away. Adapters, easily purchased at an electronics store, give you two other options.
Things You’ll Need:
12 volt or USB power adapter iPod USB cable
12 volt or USB power adapter
iPod USB cable
Decide whether you want to charge your iPod Nano in your vehicle or your hotel room. If you will be driving a lot on your trip, charging the iPod in the vehicle is convenient.
Use a 12-volt power adapter made for iPods to charge your device in the vehicle. Some of these also offer the option to play your iPod’s music through your vehicle’s speakers.
Plug the adapter into your vehicle’s 12-volt power outlet. Plug the other end into your iPod. Your Nano will charge while you drive.
Purchase a USB power adapter made for the iPod if you wish to charge your device in your hotel room.
Plug the adapter into the wall. The USB cable that came with your iPod then plugs into the adapter. The other end of the USB cable connects to the Nano as usual. The Nano will start charging.
