I'm looking at the bottom of speaker and all I see is a serial number.

Hi there! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this trouble. It would be my pleasure to assist you. Do both your ipod and your iphone use the same type of charging cable, or does the ipod use the old style 30 pin charger (the wide one rather than the newer lightning chargers?

Model MA446LL version 1.3 indicates that you have a SERIES 1 SoundDock which is one of the earliest models. That is important to know because the early Apple iPods used a firewire 12v in the 30 pin plug, rather than using usb to charge. When iPhones became available firewire was discontinued. I believe that this is the additional adapter that you will need.
