Charging is not supported...
Hi. I'm hoping someone on here has a suggestion for how to make this work. Here's the situation: In our two cars, we have the same setup for charging with a belkin cigarette lighter adapter and a usb charging cable plugged into the charger.
Car A has a USB extension cable added between the iPhone cable and the power adapter.
Car B only has the iPhone cable.
My black 3gs will charge correctly in both cars, while my wife's white 3gs will only charge in car B. In car A, the white iPhone reports that charging is not supported with this accessory.
Since the only difference is the extension cable, it would seem that that is the culprit. What I don't understand, however, is why the black iPhone is happy with that setup.
Both phones are running the same version of iOS (4.3.5), so there shouldn't be a difference there.
Does anyone have any ideas of what to try?

I have learned over the years of owning iPhone's since they first came out that each iPhone has it's own unique personality. I have had some not like a specific charger others not want to connect to a Bluetooth headset etc.
I suggest you move the extension to the other car and if it still won't charge the wife's iPhone replace the extension.

i use to the belkins because they were cheaper, but i was having the same problem, sometimes if you just reboot your iphone it will work or just take out and put it back in. i eventually went back to apple usb charger to avoid all of it.

Thanks for all of the advice. It seems like it is really just a personality difference between the two phones. The white one is just more picky about it's cables. We are going to be upgrading to the 4s soon, and are hopeful that the problem will just go away with the new phones.
