USB does not charge iPad,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Belkin 6-Outlet Wall Mount Surge Protector with Dual USB Ports (1 AMP / 5 Watt) (Electronics)
I use the 2 USB chargers to charge my iPhone and iPod nano simultaneously, while using the outlet plugs for a light, clock radio, phone and iPad. The USB chargers will not charge my iPad, even when the second USB is unplugged. They don't seem to have enough power for the iPad. This is not a big issue for me, because I use the 2 USBs for other devices, but it will be for others. You can still plug your iPad power adapter in one of the 6 outlets.

does the back plug rotate? My bedroom wall socket is mounted horizontally, top on the left side. Might be a deal breaker for me. thanks.

Those USB chargers are not rated to charge the iPad. That is why the iPad comes with it's own USB adapter. In fact if I remember correctly it will not charge connected to a computer either. You can only use the Apple USB iPad adapter to charge the iPad.

I can charge my iPad (1st generation) from my computer, as well as from the USB charger on the Monster MP OTG400 BK Outlets To Go 4 Outlet Travel Power Strip (Black)

My 2nd generation iPad will only charge with the Apple adapter, not the USB port.

The iPad will charge when connected to some computers, but a lot of computers and hubs now have lower power usb(like those that used to be attached to Apple keyboards) that won't charge it...so it's not surprising that this doesn't do it either.
