    Hi friends,

    Is there such a thing as an airplane charger usb adapter where I can charge my ipad via the 2 prong ear piece on the chair arm? I'm headed to San Diego for a week when school is over and then two weeks later to Europe and I don't want to run my battery down.

    Thanks!

    -CP

    Not that I know of. Ask your Apple store or call 1-800-MYAPPLE and ask them. Since the iPad battery lasts about 10 hours, you should be ok. You can check that you don't have a lot of apps running too, just like checking on the iPhone.
    Many planes now have USB ports at each site. Just check your airline and flight info. I know you can check with on Delta flights.

    Even if there where such a headphone adapter, would it just not charge your iPad. Those aren't meant to supply 2amps.

    There is however, always the possibility of flying first class on airlines, which support charging of electrical devices.

    Some US airlines offer 110V plugs in the seats.... Others offer 12 Volts.. (Which will work if you have a USB car charger).

    Check this link --> Airline Seating Charts - Best Airplane Seats - SeatGuru ... Put in the aircraft you are flying in and it will tell you what power is available in the seats and what type of connector you will need...

    The best solution is to carry a separate battery pack, such as one of the Hypermac range.

    It depends on the airline. On Singapore Airlines, I've charged my iPad on both economy (Airbus A380) and business class (Boeing 777 and Boeing 747-400) -- http://www.singaporeair.com/saa/en_UK/content/exp/entertainment/pc.jsp??v=1340266229&

    But it is a separate electrical charger port, not the same as the headphone jack outlet.
