    Hi
    Please, could I have help/suggestions for charging the iPad when out in the campervan? Easy when on a hook up, but often we are reliant on our leisure batteries for several days and would like to know if we can charge the iPad from the 12volt sockets? If so where would we buy the correct connectors?
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge - we are new to motorhoming and to the iPad!

    There are many, many iPad chargers available that allow you to plug into 12-volt chargers. Just make sure the charger you buy is specifically for the iPad (it requires a lot of power to charge fully and fast) and you will be fine.

    As for where to get them, you could go to any electronic store, to include Apple. Or, have a Google for 12-volt charger. Then, there's always Amazon... Again, the only key is that you ensure the charger is specifically for the iPad. Then you'll know it'll supply enough power.

    Happy RVing! :)
