    Charge new ipad without using power adaptor?warranty?

    The iPad will charge with the iPhone charger. Just be aware that it won't charge as fast (there's not enough of a power output from the phone charger). For faster (and best) charging, you will want to use the iPad charger, however...

    I believe your receipt acts as the warranty card (for Apple's purposes). I've never received a warranty card - and I believe your one-year warranty starts with the purchase. Now, if you signed up (read: paid for) the extended Apple Care, I'm sure that would be documented at Apple.

    If you are in the US, with no documentation of the point of sale, the warranty reverts to manufacture date of the device. You can use the serial number to look up its warranty status. Please go to https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do to accomplish this check.

    I've checked the serial number in the official website already and it shown my iPad is within the one year warranty. But I wonder the customer service here wants me show the purchase receipt But I don't have it.

    That's nice that they want it. Inform them you don't have it, due to it being a prize, and that the warranty still needs to be honored. If need be get a manager to help resolve any issues.
