I meant iPhone, not iPod. You are probably right about the iPad--I haven't tried it w/my new "3" yet.
Not about charging, but I have found that my iPad has problems syncing over the long cables. Switched to the short one, and Bingo!
Just thought others might be interested.

bought 3 different cables from china stores and doesnt work for charge, at new ipad or iphone 4...beware
Somehow I haven't managed to get a non-charging cable to my iPad. And I've bought lots of them, for my family at home and summer cottage. Simply because the one and only would be lost all the time...
My advice is not to buy the cheapest nor the most expensive one either. That simply means going to the local hardware/electronics store, not the Apple store or ebay.

I have to admit that I've been lucky with 3rd party cables, but I buy mine from Amazon rather than ebay. If I were to get one that didn't work, I could send it back to Amazon and they will pay the shipping, as the product is defective. To me, this makes it safer to try 3rd party cables.
I'm not a fan of the white cables that Apple loves to use. To me, they stick out like a sore thumb. I hate that in my car. So I only get black cables. I use them on my 10 W chargers and use the white ones for charging my phone. So, for me, black cable charges the iPad and white one charges the phone. Now I can easily keep track when I go to charge my devices.
