Hey guys only have my iPad 3 days and battery is still not dead!! Just have a question regarding charging my iPad should I use the charger in box or would the mains charger I have for my iPhone do the job?

From one Irishman to another...

If you charge using the iPhone charger it will take much longer and only charge if the display is off. Best using the one that came with it.

Its up to you, if you're in a hurry to get it charged a lot of the time, then get the other Apple one, failing that and you're happy with the wait, then the one that was in the box.
