    Will the charger that comes with the iPad charge my iPhone 4 and iPod nano faster then their original charger?

    Related question- is using the iphone charger for the iPad a bad idea?

    No. With the obvious caveat that if you have both available, go with the higher-wattage iPad charger. In a pinch there's no harm in using the iPhone cube.

    My iphone charger wont work with ipad - it plugs in, sounds like it started charging, but says "not charging"

    Only the ipad orig cable works for me

    it says not charging, but it's charging slowly. you get the same message if you're charging via usb. i rarely use the wall charger unless i need an immediate boost in a short time. i find that when plugged into my computer, the ipad will charge from 20% to full overnight without issue.
