    What car charger are you using (if ever) right now?
    Is it iPad-specific? Or is just your iPhone/iTouch car charger?
    Any good deals around for nice quality ones?

    i have a power inverter that I can plug into my 12V outlets and get low amperage 120VAC + USB ports. So I can charge using my iPad charger, or at least use the USB plug to maintain the charge.

    I found a cheap iPhone car charger at Staples and I'm using that.

    I'm using a car inverter we had for our laptop and just plugging in the ac cord.

    Unless you know something I don't, I believe there is no official (OEM) Apple Ipad Car Charger yet.

    They do have the Kensington, Griffin, and Incase brand car chargers for the iPad though.

    I used to have that Griffin you posted above, which works very well - it has the 2.1 Amps needed to charge the iPad, as long as you're using the 2 Amp USB cable that it comes with. I ended up upgrading to a Kensington Duo though, so I could charge both my iPad and my iPhone together without 'splitting' the charging power (it has 2.1 amps for iPad and 1 amp for iPhone). It's super cheap too ($8.49 on sale at Amazon).

    I just ordered two of [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Kensington-K39224US-PowerBolt-Charger-including/dp/B003GSL6UG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1292357129&sr=8-1"]these[/ame], one for each of our cars. My wife often runs out of juice for her iPod, so this will take care of that problem as well as having the 2 amps for the iPad.
