Wall charger for iPod?

I hate having to run my computer just to charge my iPod. Anyone make a decent charger for cheap?

They used to give you one in the box. Apple still sells it as an accessory.

Dude. That's novelty. It gives enough of a current to make the ipod recognize it, but doesn't actually give enough power to charge anything.

Getting a really inexpensive wall charger could possibly damage an iPod if the output's not regulated properly. Griffin makes a fairly inexpensive unit that's reliable:

I have an old school 20 gig with the Firewire port instead of the dock. It came stock with a wall charger. I will be sad when it dies.

The Griffin one works fine. We have that at work and we use it for about 4 different ipods while we are on our shift. Nobody has even had a problem.
