    Second review down on that page says it won't charge an iPad and honestly I believe them after reading its 2amp but split between the two USB ports so really it's 1amp per port.

    I bought this

    It's 2.1 amp which is what you are really looking for when it comes to iPad charging.

    I like the design and it's reasonably prices. But do the adapters with two USB outputs that support iPad charging exist?

    I could never find one that would charge two iPads simultaneously. I ended up getting this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0042X8XQE/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00
    and am very glad I did! Now, I don't have to worry about 30pin adapters, etc. Plus, I can charge my MacBooks, too. It's been great so far.

    What are the chances of ruining your iPhone's or iPad's battery when you charge them in the car?

    Most if not all car chargers have a fuse so if there is a surge the fuse will stop the surge from getting to your devices. All you'll have to do is replace the fuse.

    Pretty slim. I've been doing it for years and haven't had any problems with any of them.

    I have a lot of chargers, mostly griffin, but this is the latest one I bought:

    http://store.griffintechnology.com/ipad/ipad-3/powerjolt-dual

    It can charge 2 iPad 3s at the same time. It's a beast. I usually use a Griffin Autopilot, but unfortunately it can't charge an iPad, but works great to charge and play music through your iPhone with one connection.

    Can't wait until they come out with a lightning connector version.
