    Anyone got any views about using a (quality) generic charger, or about using an Apple iPad charger, instead of the supplied one.

    The Apple supplied one is a 1A output so OK for iPhones but not iPads.

    What about portable battery packs?

    I would prefer to take fewer chargers suitable for all devices when travelling, if possible.

    Thanks

    i use a apple looking belkin usb adapter for my iphone with no issues as well as a 10,000 mAh battery pack for recharging on the go with no issues. i cant imagine the watch will be any different.

    Anything that conforms to the USB standard (and has a USB plug )will work fine.

    Have charged mine from various charging points including:
    • iPod adaptors
    • iPhone adaptors
    • iPad adaptors
    • Kindle USB adaptors
    • An older style Apple 'travel' charger fitted with euro pins, plugged into the shaver socket on a sleeper train
    • The watch foldy-uppy adaptor plugged into the laptop socket on a train
    • Every other USB port imaginable including the ones in the car
    • A TomTom adaptor plugged into the 12v
    All fine.
