Can charge an iPad as it's being used, not just while in sleep mode.
Watch out for a similar named product by Griffin (it doesn't work), and look specifically for the 2.1 amps.
That's very important if you want to charge the iPad in the car.
I called up Apple and explained the problem to them. I pointed out that the sugar cube charger was rated at 1 amp, but this Griffin charger was rated at 2.1 amps. Was it charging the phone a lot faster, and hence, generating more heat? They said that some chargers are designed to charge iPads, and maybe I should avoid those. In any case, they suggested that I discontinue using this particular charger.
Amazon was very gracious, and told me they would accept the return even though I had already thrown out the original packaging.
I'm giving it three stars, because clearly it works for other folks, just not me.
One other thing to note. In broad daylight, you cannot really see the green glow when this device is enabled--I was only able to see it in the garage. That's probably a good thing, otherwise the light from it might overwhelm your eyes when driving at night.
The iPad has an amazing battery life. And it has some pretty interesting applications for traveling, games for the kids (or your bored wife), navigation and GPS programs with turn by turn, contact managers, Google Earth, et cetera. The likelihood that you or someone in the car will want to use your iPad when traveling is high. So an iPad charger is a necessity. The "old" chargers do not deliver enough wattage to recharge your iPad, something I found out when after a long flight watching a movie from Florida to Newark and a drive through Tony Soprano country with the Navigon GPS directing me and Jimmy Buffett cranking out in the background, I suddenly found I had no where near enough power to watch a second movie on the way home at the end of a thirteen hour day. The charger I thoughtfully brought from home was not charging, as my iPad cheerfully noted in the small print on top of the screen.
So this is the solution-an iPad charger that incidentally "works great."
When you plug it into the iphone a warning of incompatibly pops up. Same warning as reported by G. Herbel "Colorado"
That's not the bad news. The bad news is what happens if you ignore the warning. Since it does charge- I ignored the warning. With the phone off it does seem to charge, even if slowly.
If using the iphone and charging at the same time (in the car), after a short while the iphone shows "no SIM CARD" and you obviously lose the network. Only a full reboot of the iphone fixes the problem. Happened twice.
I won't take a chance again of doing permanent damage to the phone.
Two stars because I have no reason to believe the charger itself is not good. Until I test a different cable, I won't know for sure.
