    Can I charge my IPad3 with my Ipad 1 or Ipad 2 chargers?
    Or do I have to use only the charger that came with the Ipad3?

    Thanks

    Any iPad charger should be fine, you don't need to stick to the "3" one (I have all 3 and use all 3 for different devices).
    If you use an iPhone charger you will find it charges much slower, and in some cases it may not fully charge the iPad at all.

    You can but I think it will take longer than if you used an iPad 3 charger due to the iPad 3 having a larger battery and output for the display

    From what I understand, all models use the same specification charger, i.e. 10W. The iPad3 one is not special AFAIK.

    My iPad 1 and iPad 3 chargers have identical specifications.
    Personally I use the 10 watt Griffin charger and it's longer
    cord.

    Has anybody used a higher rated power supply and used a USB hub with it to charge two iDevices at the same time?
