I wish the dock port was on the long side of the iPad - it's much better used in landscape than portait.

stupid question would this work on an android ipad

this wont work with iphone, might work with ipod touch.

Uses Apple's proprietary connector, so nope!

Ordered cheers op

jus got an ipad las week so could use one of these for convienence..heat added

Good price

re: "- Input Power: from PC USB port (iPad connection cable not included)".. shame most computers can't supply the power the iPad needs from the USB. I haven't yet found a single PC that can!

Masseur

PCs do as long as wifi is disabled and / or its in sleep mode. Not ideal by a long shot but they do power them

If you have an asus mobo then the ]Ai Charger software automatically detects the connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad and boosts the power to those ports. There's probably sw for other mobs too - or try that ASUs download and see if it works.

Will this charge an iphone4? The iPhone cradle is £7.99...I'm guessing this won't charge my phone but as I don't own an iPad I thought I'd ask before I purchased this. Thanks in advance

I bought one of these a few months ago hoping I could use this to charge my iPad via supplied mains charger however I couldn't get this to work. No matter what I tried no power would come through to charge (I wasn't interested in the sync function). I did not try it in my pc via USB so I can't say if that would work. I hope this helps someone.

These perennial sorts of question about chargers and charging is due to the fact that people do not ask the correct question, they merely asked the dumbed-down questions - will X work with Y. The manufacturer definitely knows the answer but resellers might or might not - because with the advent of Mama-Papa sellers/resellers/”businesses”, they too are as ignorant as some of their buyers. For example, you don’t ask the station attendant whether diesel fuel will work with your petrol-driven car, you know what is what and needs only to source the correct item. Not having the requisite knowledge allow chimps, monkeys, and the living[-but]-dead “resellers” do as they please - the, “Return eet..” learning curve - not when the postage is more or a large chunk of the item cost.

A USB port is specified to allow a maximum of 0.5 amp[eres] [or 500 milli-amp/500mA] of current over [a] 5-volt [sustained potential] - ½ amp over 5-volts - regardless of whether the USB port is from a 3-pin plug mains charger, a MAC or a PC [though some PC motherboards like, say, the Gigabyte “3x3” series, will offer 1.5 amps at some of their USB ports]. An iPad needs [a maximum of] 2.0 Amps [over 5-volts] to charge whilst switched on - 2 amps over 5-volts. As devices become more power hungry due to their complexity, oka being more saleable [and power is the current multiplied by the voltage - this knowledge is not necessary, of course], and as the Apple generation of devices progress, discrete [i.e not PC based] USB chargers have increased their output from 0.5 amps right up to 1.0 amp claimed, both real and unreal, the unreal being the cheaper [componentry] design, thereby reducing their claimed max current output.

The thing about chargers and charging is that the current specified is the maximum supply-able by the charger/source, it is not necessarily what is coming out when you plug-in your to-be-charged device. As such, with a charger specified with a maximum of, say, 1.0 amp current deliverable, your iPad won’t be charged should it be switched on. Switched-off, the iPad will charge even from a ½ amp [deliverable] PC USB port. Switched off. Not being used/useable. It’s mostly a joke, right? [A good analogy for the power draw/requirement is the water hose pipe and its flow of water - the hose diameter, ie the voltage, is always the same, but as the water pressure increases, the flow, ie the current, becomes quicker/more powerful. It depends on the turn of the tap, ie the device power-draw/charging-requirement].

Apple sells a very expensive [for what it costs to make] mains/discrete USB charger for the iPad and this charger is specified as having a max 2.0 Amps [deliverable] - ie. its circuitry is designed to sustainably deliver that current and it won’t get overheated and expire as you’ll experienced should you plug-in a ½ amp or even 1.0 amp charger to a switched-on iPad [or whatever device you want to charge matched]. When you get nothing when you plugged-in a lower [deliverable current] specified charger to, say, a switched-on iPad, that is the protection circuitry cutting-in to protect the charger from overheating/expiring/smoking. When consumers become more knowledgeably demanding, the manufacturers and resellers have no option but to become more honest and sincere in their specification/offerings as opposed making frivolous offerings and using mesmerism to promote their acceptance.

Reality is when knowledge/potential becomes empowered/its-kinesis. Having just the knowledge but without being thusly empowered means you won’t be able to handle the knowledge and vice-versa, should you have the power but lacking its knowledge/truth as to what the power is really for, you won’t be able to handle the power. Just look at the current round of “Cuts” - those jokers here, there, and everywheresss, do not really know what they are doing because, in reality/Reality, they do not know what or why they [and “others”] were born for. If it is for faith, being mighty, and scholarly, oka Immortality, Fortune and Fame, one’s vested selves, then that’s no problem. There are plenty of those for vacuuming should one have the capability and capacity to be cruel and cunning, but having to die thereafter, much like being born to merely die, now, that’s another matter - unless one is a gangster or an addict or all sorts. The reality about being alive is to be truly living and not be living but dead. To be truly free as opposed to own or be owned. Being owned by a gadget is one thing, to be owned by the subsystem of the gadget is the pits.

TL;DR

Your hosepipe analogy is screwed up. Voltage is like pressure, current is the rate of flow and resistance is the inverse of the diameter of the pipe. So if an incredibly enlightened individual such as yourself gets this wrong, what hope for the poor plebs who just want to know if X works with Y?

Free delivery always a saver

Be warned that this product does not allow syncing or charging. I bought 2 and none of them works and the company is not responding to my requests for returning. Faulty product combined with no customer service...

A close run thing, but I think you just about managed to convey the right about of irony there.

Mine doesn't work either
