The proprietary connector on the iPad means you need special cables to charge them. This retractable cable from Macally is designed for travel, and combines the special iPad connector on one end with a USB connector on the other. The two are connected by a retractable cable the collapses for travel into a tiny package. It works well with the dual device charger also featured in this collection.
