    Hi all!
    I'm just curious if anyone notice when charging the iPad 2 is much faster than the original iPad. I think it is, but I just want to know what you guys think of it. I was using the charger that came with the unit. Anyhow, using another brand like griffin takes forever for recharge. Please share your experience if you have any. Thanks!

    You have to look at the voltage and current (amps) on your adapter. A common mistake, because they look the same on the outside, is to use the iPad and iPhone/iPod adapters interchangeably, which they are not - the iPad adapter runs 2.1A whilst the iPhone/iPod adapters only do 1A, which means the latter will take longer to charge. You'll have to look at what the current/wattage is on the Griffin as well. (For the same reason, USB ports on many computers under 1A will also not charge the iPad because they're underpowered.)
