Style Name: For iPad
People, it's marketed as an ipad charger because it can charge at the required 5v/2.1amps, not because it can charge an ipad fully. All the descriptions also only say it'll increase play on the device for x amount of hours anyway.

The reason? Simple, it only has a 4800mah battery inside. While that's plenty to recharge say a 4S a few times (with a 1400mah battery) it simply cannot recharge a full ipad 3 with its 11,560mah battery. At best around a third. You can't expect it to give out more battery life than it has.

The ipad 2 is a better story, with is battery at just under 7000mah, this would charge over half of it easily.

This device works great for me. I've used it on 11-hour flights to keep my iPad charged while I watch movies or play video games. I've also used it for several hours at a time to watch streaming TV on the iPad. I can't tell how long it would keep the iPad charged, but so far, it's been enough for everything I've needed it for.

Style Name: w/Blackberry Charging Dongle Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've used this for more than my iphone, and it was HUGELY valuable during Hurricane Sandy here in NYC where I was without power for a full week! I have a radio powered by USB too. I charged this up before the storm, and it kept me powered on my iPhone and the radio for the ENTIRE WEEK - about 3 charges each. This really does belong in your emergency kit, along with your flashlight. It's not a generator of course, but it will see your phones through an extended blackout.

COMPATIBILITY
Will Work with any device that can be charged by:
USB Male
USB Female
Micro USB Female
Micro USB Male
Mini USB Male
To actually charge an iphone/iPad, you need to iphone/ipad cabe which this does NOT come with.

PERFORMANCE
Charges in 6 hours from a laptop
Will charge an iPhone 5 full times on a single charge

Style Name: w/Blackberry Charging Dongle Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Let me first state the number of stars is strictly from the perspective of my experience using this with an iPad 3rd gen. I tried it a half dozen times with the battery fully charged and I consistently got around a 23 to 25% up tick in battery life left fully discharging a charged battery. So if I was at 50%, after using a fully charged battery I would get up to 74 to 75% charge. Ten percent I would go to 34%, etc. Since Targus is marketing this not as an iPhone back up but an iPad back-up battery you might want to look elsewhere. Granted they ARE marketing it as an iPad 2 battery and the third gen has a larger capacity. So keep that in mind with my review. But I suspect that the battery size also comes into play recharging an iPad 2.

As a battery to have in purse or car for iPhones it is very handy though. It provides at least 3 recharges of phones almost all the way from zero to full. We camp and sometimes have a no electricity camp site. So this will come in very handy. It is slightly larger than an iPhone and not heavy at all. It also comes with an adapter for USB devices, making it additionally handy.

In the end marketed instead as a backup battery for an iPhone I would give it 4 or 5 stars. For a third gen iPad it simply isn't a big enough battery. Not a good choice if that is what you intend to be the main use of it. For the iPad 2, you might want to look at other products price/ benefits to see if you want to go with this. It clearly will pump it up more than 24% but still perhaps not enough to make it a good purchase for that use.

This product has been more useful than I ever thought it would be. I bought this backup because I had to give a presentation and did not want to take a chance of my iPad running low on power. It worked like a charm -- I gave my presentation and was able to take notes and record parts of each of the other presentations given at the meeting. Never ran low on power, but on my way home, I stopped and had dinner with my son in law. His iPhone was dead and he used my Targus backup to charge his phone while we ate dinner. I ended up having to purchase one for him. He is out on the job for up to 18 hours at a time and frequently runs down his phone and iPad. Now, he has no problem making it all day on the job without an outlet nearby.

Style Name: w/Blackberry Charging Dongle
It is marketed as an iPad charger because it can put out enough amps to charge an iPad not because it can fill one up. It clearly states its capacity and your iPad does too. I use it on my phone mostly to get me through the school day and navigating on my bike but it works great on the iPad.

I first bought one for my wife in 2012, and she loved it so much that my daughter asked for one to take with her to college......so I bought a second one in 2013. We love the Targus backup battery so much that we just bought (6) more to give as Christmas presents this year.

It's very light weight, is about the same size as my family's smartphones and truly does do what the specs sez it will do. 5 Stars!!
