    Technical question about iPad charger

    I see that the iPad charging block is rated for 5.1v 2.1A output. I have an extra cord from my old iPod and a generic charging block rated at 4.2v 200mA output. Can I use this generic charging block as an extra or will it be too grossly under rated?

    Thanks, Dan

    Typically, any other Apple charger will trickle charge the iPad very slowly and the iPad will indicate this by displaying a 'Not Charging' message to alert you to the fact.
