    Definitely not the 10W USB Charger from Apple (charges at 6W rather than 10), March 22, 2011

    There is truth to the claims that this is not the same charger as the one that comes with the iPad. I just got this today and the two units are definitely different…this one is lighter, has different writing on it [the phrase “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China” is missing from this product even though it does say “(c) 2010 Apple Inc. All rights reserved.” The electrical information appears to be the same. I note that the male USB receptacle is mounted in this unit the other way around! There are some other difference too.

    I haven’t had it long enough to see if the charging performance is the same or roughly the same, but I plan to test this over the next few days. At least my iPad does charge. Not sure about the rate of charging or if this is a durable product.

    Comment: I have a charger for my Nook Color that is rated at 5V and 1.9A (or 9.5W). The iPad will NOT charge at all with this charger, but it does charge with the unit under review here. Apple has obviously built some smarts into the iPad and has a fairly tight range of voltage/current that it will accept for charging.

    I have been using this charger for the last 3 nights to recharge my iPad 2. Even though this is not an Apple product, the price is also not an Apple product price, either. It seems to work fine for charging my iPad. I will continue to post updates on how this charger performs. And for those who only want the Apple charger, why not order it from Apple or Best Buy? Apple products always seem to come with Apple prices and not discounted (unless Apple has discounted the product themselves (like they did for the 1st gen iPad recently).

    Edit: I have now been using this charger for nearly two weeks. It works fine. I’m not giving it 5 stars as the product wording does lead one to believe it is an Apple product. But the iPad 2 won’t tolerate charges can’t can’t supply the required 2 A @ 5V. This one does and charges my iPad 2 the same rate as the one that came with my iPad. It’s a good bit cheaper, but it hasn’t fallen apart and doesn’t over heat.

    Edit2: I’ve been using this charger for several months now. Charges my iPad 2 just fine. It is clearly not the Apple product, but it puts out 5V @ 2.1A and that’s what the iPad 2 needs.

    Edit3: Well, I decided to put a Kill A Watt meter on this unit to see what wattage is is providing compared to the Apple charger. It turns out it is only putting out 6 Watts according to this meter. However, the Apple charger puts out 11 Watts. Now, this is the measurement according to my Kill A Watt meter. Apparently, it is giving my iPad 2 what it needs to think this is a compatible charger because the iPad 2 chargers, but obviously it is going to charge the unit at a slower rate. This is definitely NOT even a 10 Watt charger, let alone an Apple charger. Thus, this is indeed a rip-off device, even though I have used it for months to charge my iPad 2.

    I just noticed that the price of this item has increased, too. I’m going to write Amazon about this.

    Edit4: While the product may not be up to par, the seller is apparently of a much higher order. I was refunded my purchase price for this product. In the future, I will continue to buy from this seller and they do stand behind what they sell. Also, they did offer to test another unit and send it out to me.

    This is a cheap copy of the real thing. The included USB adapter doesn’t fit properly in the iPAD. It is 10 Watt, but it doesn’t charge the unit is fast as the original iPad charger. I’d buy the real thing!

    This is a counterfeit copy of the Apple iPad charger. When connected to this charger, the iPad battery icon shows that the iPad is charging, but it blinks, indicating that the iPad is not charging at full power like it does with the real 10W charger.
