charging i pods

This may seem like a silly question to some of the younger members but as a reasonably older member of the human race and a bit of a technophobe I recently took the plunge and bought a basic i pod and speakers from Tescos at Christmas and my daughter has kindly downloaded music for me onto the ipod. I would like to take this with me to PDC in the summer and my question relates to charging up the i pod. I do not have a lap top and I understand from my daughter that she has been charging it on her lap top. Is it possible to get it charged up in PDC? I will be staying at La Penita.

I'm not sure how you charge an ipod as I don't have one. But if it's a UK plug that connects then you'll just need a uk to spanish plug adapter. If it needs to be hooked up to a computer to charge then you may have a problem. There are many places you can use computers (for a fee) but these don't have the required USB port available due to serious risk of putting viruses on the computers. I can only think that you ask either the place you are staying if they will charge it (overnight maybe) or see if you can plug it into a fellow guests laptop.

Go on to Ebay and buy a usb wall charger socket, they cost about £4. Your usb lead plugs into it then it just goes into the wall, you will just need the usual european adapter when you go away.

Hope this helps.

Are the speakers a docking station? If so they will charge your ipod.
