    I'm getting an iPad next month while on vacation in the States (I live in the UK).

    Obviously, while I'm in the States, I can charge it with the USB cable + power adaptor supplied. However, I can't quite tell from various unboxing pics, but I'm guessing I can use USB cable supplied in the box along with my UK iPhone wall charger to charge the iPad when I get home?

    I've read the various stories about slow charging over USB via PC (I don't have a Mac), but I'm not too worried about that.

    Also - one question I've never been able to find an answer to is how to "deauthorise" iPod's on my iTunes account. I now have four iPods connected to my iTunes account (it was five, until I got rid of my wife's iPod Shuffle). We have two iPhones, an iPod Touch and a Nano - but I'm selling the Touch before I go to the States.

    I'm concerned, that by adding the iPad, I'll be over my limit on the amount of devices that can share apps and music...

    Anyone got any thoughts or answers on this?

    The charger is universal 110/240 you just change the little plug thing.

    There isn't a limit to the number of devices. The limit is computers using your account which is 5. But to deauthorise everything you load iTunes click store then on the right click account then tap deauthorise all. You can do this once every 365 days.

    Thanks Gav.

    Any thoughts on the deauthorisation of iPods?

    You can connect as many iPods as you want, but they can only be synced with one computer at a time (syncing to another computer will wipe existing content).

    One ting I'm not entirely clear on - I know Apple will set up iPad for me in the store when I make my purchase, so that I can use the web/email - but will I be able to access the App Store, or will I need to sync it first?

    You should be able to buy things on the app store, which will then sync to your comp when you connect it? It should offer to transfer purchases I believe.
