Anything that works with docking iPods will work (using the proprietary 30-pin dock connector on the bottom).

All docking stations that work with normal iPods will work with your iPod Touch. If not, I believe you could probably get an adapter.

All of the late 2008 iPods, including 2nd generation Touch may not be compatible with earlier docking stations. They will more than likely work as they should for the speaker function but may not be able to charge. I believe they now charge at a different voltage (something about firewire). I have several speaker/docking systems that work for 1st gen Touch but don't for 2nd gen.
