    Hello,

    I have a new 3rd gen iPad and a white MacBook from 2007. I realized I could take the extension piece from the MacBook charger to extend the iPad charger basically creating this product

    The brick portion of the charger gets quite warm and I just want to make sure that what I'm doing is safe for the iPad (and for my house!).

    Thanks in advance.

    It's just fine. I've done it multiple times with no issue. It should be fine with any newer Apple power supply that it fits. For instance, from a macbook onto an Airport Express.

    No big deal. It's just a cord. The cord can certainly handle the current. If it can handle your MB it can handle the iPad.

    Transformers generate heat. They're not 100% efficient. Nothing unusual there.
