Can you charge an iPadAir with wall USBs without using the supplied 12 W adapter? The type you see in airports, coffee shops that connect directly into electricity using USB Ports? Would that be too much electricity, certainly don't want to zap my iPad!?
Thanks, Biii

There shouldn't be a problem, but to be safe you may want to ask what power is supplied. They're intended for charging cell phones so there should be no danger of damaging your iPad. The problem is that they might not supply enough power to both charge and use the iPad at the same time.
