Do I need to use the adapters included with this product?
To put it simply, yes. It's true that the Evolve will work just fine without any adapter in place, but without an adapter, the Evolve's 30-pin connector has to bear the weight of your device on its own, without any support. This can lead to damage to that dock connector that can affect charging, audio output, or both. Damage caused by failure to use the correct dock adapter is not covered under warranty.
For more information on those adapters and which one is the right one for your iPod, check out this article on Apple's website.
If the adapter for your device wasn't included with the Evolve, you can use the adapter that was included with your iPod. If you don't have that adapter, or you need a spare, we can help you out. Adapters for the following devices can be purchased here:
- iPhone 3G/3G S
- 2nd Generation iPod touch
- 4th Generation iPod nano
- 5th Generation iPod nano
If you need an adapter for an earlier iPod model, give us a call at (800) 208-5996 between 9am and 6pm Monday through Thursday or between 9am and 5pm on Friday (CST) and we'll be happy to take your order over the phone.
