Thoughts on a cheap charger, like this?

Wouldn't do it. Note the compatibility: it says iPhone 3G, 3GS.

Is there a difference though? Same connection right?

You're right though, I think i'll go with something of a higher quality..

There is a difference. The ipad needs more power than the iphone.

I remember reading somewhere that the new iPad takes a bit more power than the original. I've been through this already with iPad 1 - my old iPhone charger wuldn't work with it. I would make sure a new charger will work with the iPad 2 before buying, or save the receipt and return it if the iPad 1 charger doesn't work.
