Important:  If a “Charging, Please Wait” or “Connect to Power” message appears on the 
iPod nano screen, the battery needs to be charged before iPod nano can communicate 
with your computer. See “If iPod nano displays a “Connect to Power” message” on 
page 58.

If you want to charge iPod nano when you’re away from your computer, you can 
purchase the Apple USB Power Adapter.

To charge the battery using the Apple USB Power Adapter:

Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected).

Connect the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 cable to the power adapter, and plug the 

other end of the cable into iPod nano. 

Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 

WARNING:  Make sure the power adapter is fully assembled before plugging it into an 
electrical outlet.
