Yep- the iPods made from 2008 onwards (excluding the Classic) only charge over the USB connection. Many older speaker systems use the FireWire standard. The Bose system is one of those. I believe your best solution would be to buy the Griffin Charge Converter with the Sound Dock cradle. Buy it here.
