Which car charger for Sendstation PocketDock

I've just bought the PocketDock Line Out Mini USB http://www.sendstation.com/us/produc...t-miniusb.html in order to use it with my iPhone and iPod Classic (for both audio and charging).

I've tried several car charger (12V to mini-USB) and none of it works.
I've contacted the company support and they said that part of car chargers doesnt work because of some wiring issue (answer transcript is below). They suggest using Sendstations car charger, but it doesnt support my iPhone.

Do you have a recommendation of a car charger (12V to mini USB) that will solve my problem ?

Thanks,

Ben

--------------------- Sendstation Support answer-------------------------------
The iPhone (and some recent iPod models) requires the charger to bridge the so-called Vbus power (the 5V) via some resistors to the D+/- communication lines, so the iPhone/iPod knows how much power it can actually draw from the charger. Some chargers coincidentally have this resistor bridge, while others don't. There unfortunately nothing we can do about this at this point.
