Anyone else tried using this with their iPhone 3GS? If you have an original iPhone or an iPhone 3G, the charging requirements are different so no need to chime in if you have one of those models.
Brad,

I'll do a test tomorrow with my friend's iPhone 3GS.
I will also call the manufacturer to see what they have to say.

I found some info which may explain the problem...

I would suggest trying another iphone cable for diagnosing purposes.
If that doesn't work, you can return the charger and I'll refund you fully including the shipping both ways.
