Well I use an iPod Nano with either cricri or vest amp on the go most of the time. I do have a iPod classic on its way so will stick that with best amp and cricri nano will be super portable and classic VestAmp more transportable but will use it most becUse of memory. I don't have all that gear but have a lot more. Pics take so long to upload so these are mainly old pics that have been uploaded in reviews so they upload lightning quick. When classic comes I will dedicate a bunch of pics for this thread, should also get a tube amp bl2!

You sure do! But this one has an inbuilt mirco USB charge socket lurking at the bottom :D

Nice. I have been thinking of doing the same with with a fuze LOD. Fitting the caps + microusb inside an plastic LOD shell might be pushing it though, so I may have to do the epoxy thing also.

 

Where did you go about getting the actual female usb port? I was thinking something like this, and just cracking it open and salvaging the port?

I bought 20 female micro USB female sockets from ebay. Like these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-Pcs-Micro-USB-AB-Female-5-Pin-SMT-Socket-Connector-long-Pin-/170921862623?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27cbbca5df , but I got type B, not these type AB.

 

I have used ( or broken - more on that later ) all of my sockets now. This was the last one. Now, I seem to be having trouble trying to source the type B sockets with the long pins. There are plenty with short pins for surface mount work, but I think it would be pretty difficult soldering wires onto the stub 'pins' on those.

 

Even the long pin variations are a real PITA to work with! The pins are so thin and fragile - about 1/3 the width of a ipod dock pin - they just break off so easily.

Derp, I guess my ebay-fu wasn't strong enough. I knew there had to be listings for those, but I couldn't find them. Thanks for the info. Hopefully this will be a little project for over semester break.

for the LOD with microUSB, do you still use pin 4? and for the ipod 30pin connector, do you still utilize the L/R "hooks" (the ones that you press to detach from the ipod ports)



i'm planning to DIY a dock similar to yours. hope you can help me with the connectors, i just want to be sure about them. thanks!
