    My wife threw both my iPod and iPad chargers in a desk drawer. How can I tell the difference between the two?

    The iPad charger will say 10W USB on the sticker.

    Here's a dumb question: will the iPad blow up if I use my iPhone or iPod charger?

    1. The only dumb question is the question not asked, especially when concerned about damage to your iPad.

    2. No. The iPod charger mimics the current on a USB port, and thus the unit may charge slowly, like when it's plugged into your pc/laptop, but it won't blow up.

    I don't think the cable matters, it's the power adapter that makes the difference.

    cable doesnt matter, they are the same. The only difference is in the wall charger (iPad wall charger is physically bigger).
