    I have a nifty dock for my iPod. Is there a way I can use it for my iPad....thru a series of connecting wires?

    Thanks.

    Something like this from Amazon looks like it might work --

    An iPod dock will not be as fast to charge, but will charge. There is a new stereo dock system coming out from iLuv that will fast charge an iPad and has adapters to work with iPod and iPhone models. Bad news for me, $143.

    I'm not so interested in charging from an iPod dock. I just want to add the ext speakesr to my iPad without purchasing yet another piece of equipment.

    So, let me rephrase....what can I do to turn my external iPod speakers into external iPad speakers? (I have the iHome ip46 speakers from Costco)

    Thanks.

    The wire that 1991-C4 suggested is the ONLY option.
