Kensington has introduced its latest FM transmitters for the iPod. The LiquidFM and LiquidFM Deluxe for iPod feature ClearFM technology, the ability to charge the iPod while it plays, three station presets for instant tuning to any FM station (88.1-107.9), an on/off switch to avoid car battery drain, and an enhanced custom digital LCD screen for easier viewing. The LiquidFM Deluxe adds QuickSeek technology to quickly find the clearest station, and the ability to display song and artist information on your car stereo using RDS technology. The LiquidFM and LiquidFM Deluxe FM Transmitters for all Click Wheel-enabled, Dock-connecting iPods are available for pre-order now, sell for $80 and $100 respectively, and will be in stores later this month.

I have the first generation Kensington FM transmitter (the white one) and I used it with my 1st generation iPhone and it worked like a charm.  Though I know it says it is not compatible with the iPhone, it still worked.  Recently I upgraded to the 2nd generation 3G iPhone and the Kensington FM tramsmitter works, but no longer charges the iPhone.  I was wondering if this new black Kensington LiquidFM will charge and still transmit FM.  Anyone similar problems with the Kensington not able to charge your iPhone?
