The rechargeables WILL start up the charging circuit. 4 new Alkalines will not.
I discussed this with Gomadic at one point and they said the problem is in the iPod circuitry, not their charger. They suggested that a workaround was to use 3 new alkalines and 1 old one.
I'm glad it will work. Because I plan on getting one of these and I'll be getting the iPod Touch tip for my wife. And I'll be getting the tip for our cell phones, Rio Karma, 500, & 505. And I will be using rechargeable batteries. I just bought some really heavy duty Energizers. So I have 8 rechargeable AA batteries at present.
