    Its not a power supply. Call them on the effectiveness with the Ipad 3. Not sure how long a battery like that would take to charge it.

    I would look at batteries that can charge a Macbook Air.

    Gotcha, thanks for the response. For some reason I was under the impression that if the external battery didn't output enough volts (?), the ipad wouldn't charge. Thanks!

    I've also been hearing a lot about the ipad not charging when in use, so I just wanted to make sure this would charge.

    AFAIK, 500 mA is the minimum, the higher it is the faster it will charger. The double charger that I linked to you has both a 500mA and 1A. The 1A charges a lot faster, but it drains the battery pack a lot quicker.
