    Sounds like an iPod is about to kick the bucket...I wouldn't blame the Apple iPad charger.

    I charge my both my son's ipods on the ipad charger.

    Maybe it is me, but it seems to charge the ipods pretty quickly....

    No harm has come to any ipod by me doing this.

    Apparently, some people don't understand the concept that devices DRAW current -- their chargers don't PUSH it.

    CERN called. The LHC is having issues and they've narrowed it down to people plugging iPods into iPad chargers and iPads into iPod chargers.

    Apparently, they've witnessed cats and dogs living together as well and fear that the end is near. I hope all of you are proud of yourselves for bringing the end of the world upon us.

    Exactly! It's no different than the fact that the iPad charger itself is plugged into an a/c outlet likely capable of 15AMPS or more. I mean, shouldn't that fry the charger???

    I have one quick question though, my friend has a charger that doesn't say the values in WATTs, is it safe to say that 5V, 2.1A markings on it means it's running on 10watts?

    Power (watts) = Voltage (volts) x Current (amperes)

    Therefore, 5V x 2.1A = 10.5W.

    My older iPod touch worked great until I got my iPad at Christmas and started charging both with my iPad charger. Now my iPod will not charge, with either cord and I am unable to reset it. It has been very useful as a paper weight!

    I use both types of chargers interchangeably with both devices, and neither of them have malfunctioned, frozen up, spontaneously combusted or otherwise "acted weird", and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    If there's a problem with the device, something else is causing it.
