    I'm going on vacation and would love to charge my iPad in the car while driving. I'm not seeing anything labeled as "car charger"? Is there one? Should I check an apple store? Thanks! Annette

    The apple online store has a car charger for your iPad.Look under cables and docks in the iPad section.If you haven't already done so,the apple store has a free app in the app store for you to download.
    If you have a local Apple store you could see if they have any in stock before ordering online,it would be quicker.

    Bought the Griffen Powerjolt car charger with usb cable yesterday. 2.1 Amp, should be strong enough to charge ipad while using it, I read in another thread that someone complained that car charger (do not know which one he was using) could not keep ipad charged but that he was using 2 gps programs and listening to music also.

    I've used the Griffin one for two years. Works well.

    I have been using the Kensington one. It has two USB connections....one powerful enough for an iPad and one that can be used to charge an iPhone. Works great!

    Buy a USB charger that plugs into your lighter socket and just plug the USB cord from your home charger into it. They aren't too expensive.

    I don't trust cheap chargers. If I buy from a reputable maker, chances are quality is better. And if there's something wrong with a charger and it damages my electronics or burns down my house, I know there's a reputable company behind the charger. (Also chances of getting recall notices if other users have probs with the same charger.) Good luck with that with cheapo chargers, especially bought off eBay or such.
