    Why does this message keep popping up when I plug in my iPhone? It pops up and then stops charging. Will a new battery fix this issue? Thanks.

    It's because it's not supported by the iPhone. It's basically not compatible is what it's saying. A new battery won't solve this, if anything, you'd have to get a new charging cable.

    Try getting a Griffen cable, they're very well made and they're compatible.

    But what I don't understand is, the USB lead I use is a official Apple cable.

    Well then that's really weird, it should always work, especially with an Apple cable. I would try a new one, that one could be broken or something of that matter.

    I tried another one and a another charger plug thingy and the same thing popped up.

    -_- I'm guessing it's your dock connector then. Replacing it should completely solve the issue... But before you go blow a bunch of money, I'd reccomend you try cleaning it with compressed air first and see if you can get it to work.

    Prolly dirty dock connector like H4CK3R said. I've "fixed" several including my own by cleaning it using a small brush that came with an electric razor...

    I've had the same problem in the past with an IPT4G. Clean with a soft brush or compressed air and you should be good to go. Also need to add that there is a nifty little dock plug set called Proctetorzhttp://www.radtech.us/Products/Portectorz.aspx made by a company called RadTech, $6 and you get rubber plugs for the dock and earphone jack, earphone jack plug even has a sim card tool molded right in. Highly recommended.

    Had the same issue with a IPT4G. Soft brush and air worked great. I now use Proctectorz dock plugs from Radtech, $6 and you have rubber plugs for the dock and earphone jack. Highly recommended.

    Is there a way to clean it just as good with household items?

    Also make sure the base of the charger is an iPhone base. I've had issues in the past using the iPhone base on my iPad and vice versa. The iPhone base is the smaller of the two
