I own a multi car socket adapter with a USB slot that won't charge my iPad. I own the Verizon Droid car charger with USB slot that won't charge my iPad. After doing some research I found out that most USB car adapters only have an output of 1 amp, the iPad needs at least 2.0 amps to charge. The Griffin Technology PowerJolt Power Charger has 2.1 amps which is perfect to use with the iPad. It even comes with the standard Apple USB dock connector that works with all iPods, iPhones and the iPad - you don't need to carry your original connector, just leave the included one in the car.
I really like how it is short in length (low profile)and does not stick out or bend up like most other car adapters on the market.
Now when I have long driving trips I can listen to my music on my iPad and not worry about draining the battery. It will charge even when your Apple product is in use.
If you are like me and own an iPad - this is a must have!
