    Hello to all, please could someone tell me how to go about charging
    iPad in foreign countries?

    Will travel to Europe from Canada and therefore my 120V adapter
    will not work there, most of countries are using 220V

    Thank you for any suggestion, have nice day.

    The cost Is aprox.. 4-5 usd and can be found In almost every electronic stores.

    Just remove your adapter and plus this on In.

    My iPod charger is marked up 100v ~ 240v...

    Just stick it in your travel adaptor- it'll be fine.

    Just to be clear, you only need an adapter to change the US-style plug to a European-style plug, NOT a voltage adapter. Even Wal-Mart sells them!

    I travel by Motorhome so much I wonder if it would recharge via a 12 volt USB which runs off the cigarette lighter? Somehow doubt it and do not want to experiment!!
