Hey Guys. Is there any downside to using a generic brand charger for your IPOD?

I was just wondering if there was any cons of using a generic travel charger for your IPOD. And is it good to charge the IPOD everyday. Ive heard that it could damage the battery life if we charge it everyday. I basically bought a IPOD for the first time and I am scared to death to damage it in anyway. Thanks

its not bad to charge it everyday but the battery only has a certain number of charges before it needs to be replaced.

If your pod doesn't need to be charged then don't charge it.
