View Full Version : Charge IPOD through IPad

Jun 2, 2011, 01:15 PM
Maybe a dumb question but is it possible to charge an IPod through an IPAd. For instance could it be done through the camera connection kit. This year, on vacation we will take only our IPAD and not our MacBook which we always used to charge the IPods. I know we can buy a wall charger but that is one more little electronic gadget to carry and between my razor, cell phone, IPad etc. I already have too many chargers to carry.

i dont think the usb power through the connection kit will be enough to charge an ipod. its probably only enough to just provide power for reading a flash card.

I don't think it will work that way but my question to you is how are going to charge the iPad? It should work for the ipod to.

Wouldn't work. Even if there was some device that let you, you'd just be transferring the charge from the iPad onto your iPod and that just seems a bit silly.

Buy a dual charger like the Griffin PowerBlock Dual Universal Charger.

Can't believe noones said you can charge the iPod with the iPad wall charger ROFL.

The iPod and iPad charger are the same. It works for both.

I smell troll

as someone mentioned just use the same charger for both

even if you could charge your iPod with the iPad, draining one battery to charge another one = stupid idea since its not as efficient as just charging both
