    Technically, any old car charger will work. The only caveat is that you want to make sure of is that the charger is powerful enough to charge the iPad. It needs to put out 5.1v and 2.1A.

    However, my recommendation is to make sure the product specifically states that it will charge the iPad. That way you can be sure it will charge the iPad.
