Charger Gets Hot More Than Other Chargers

Had my iPad for only 3 days.

First time I charged it no issues.

After using it a lot for a day and a half battery down to 40% so though i better charge it up over night.

This morning when I went to unplug it I noticed the charger was pretty hot. Not too hot to touch, but far hotter that my iPhone charger ever gets. (as warm as a warmed plate in a restaurant.).

Is this normal or is my charger stuffed?

(yes, I made sure it was my iPad not my iPhone charger I used.)

Any Difference Between Chargers?
As everyone is stating the new iPad is taking a fair amount of time to charge but I want to know if there is a difference between using the iPhone wall plug or the larger iPad wall plug? For my iPad 1 I have always used the smaller iPhone plug and never noticed a problem but obviously this may have been due to not such a large battery?

MacBook Long Charger Cord With Charger
Does anyone know if it's okay to use the extension cord that comes with MacBook pros on the iPad? If you're not familiar with what im talking about, if you look at the charger the plug pulls out. You can replace that with a longer cord. On the MBP it came with an extension. I'd like to use that with the iPad if it's not a problem.

Which Is Best Car/Battery Pack Chargers?
I asked a similar question the other day but I'm still searching for the right product..i'd like to get something which will charge my...iPod Classic/Touch iPhone 4 iPad 64GB + 3G I would like to get something which will charge in the car all three devices and also something which will charge when I don't have an electrical outlet or usb port handy... I've seen various battery packs which state they charge the devices from the battery pack itself but I'm wondering what has worked for others and if there is something anyone can recommend to me...So far I've been looking at the Griffin line of PowerJolt products... I'd like something universal also so I won't need to switch cables for each device.

Chargers With Different Voltages Compatible?
this might be a very premitive question since I'm not that smart with gadgets:

I'm living in the US and am planning to buy an iPad 2 here when it comes out.I need to travel to Korea with it in the summer, and I noticed that they have different voltage...

So I'm thinking to buy an iPad charger from the official Korean Apple Store. Here is the link (even if you don't understand Korean, you will get what I'm saying):

So, would this be valid/compatible for my US version iPad?or will it harm the device somehow because of different voltage?

Cords And Chargers Interchangeable?
Currently, I have a USB charge cord for a 1st gen iPod touch, 2nd gen iPod nano, and 1st gen iPad. I have a wall charger that i purchased to use with my touch and nano, and a wall charger that came with the iPad.

Are all these cords and chargers interchangeable? If not, what is the problem? Does the iPad wall charger have too much power output that will fry the touch and nano? Will the wall charger for the touch and nano provide enough power to charge the iPad without hurting the battery?

IPad1 And IPad2 Chargers Are Same?
I'd assumed the chargers supplied with iPad 2 was identical to the original iPad. Can anyone confirm this? I sent my new charger down to my friend with my original iPad as they were neatly wrapped up, and my old charger was plugged in & too lazy to unplug. Charging does seem slower, but not sure if it's iPad difference or charger difference.

IPad 2 Won't Charge - Tried 3 Different Chargers And USB

Solar Chargers Charging Ability?
Has anyone tried any of the solar chargers for their ipad yet?I will be working in a location without power for a month, and hope to use my ipad during those slow evenings around the campfire to catch up on some journal reading. I know that Quickertech makes a 10 watt charger product for $250: I just don't know how durable it is.

Brunton makes a similar product that looks more durable and does 12 watts. It sells at amazon for considerably less, $180: would be interested to know if anyone has tried either of these, or other products.

Video Camera - Digital Camera Cords Chargers
I am looking for a side bag that is rugged and manly looking. I am a 41 year old 300 lb man, not a trendy college kid. Looking for a bag that will hold iPad with hard candy bubble case, canon vixia camcorder, digital camera, cords, chargers, keys, knife, etc. Would be great if it had padding to protect the cameras. Not interested in leather, backpacks, fanny packs, laptop bags. This would be a carry all bag, not something i would take to the mall. More of a bag to keep my stuff in. May use it for amusement parks, day walks, etc. Any help out here? Post links or pictures if you gave them.

Which Car Charger Is Best?
I'm looking for a charger for my iPad to use when I'm in the car. Something I can plug in and use without having to monitor for battery drain. Can anyone recommend one? I do have the Apple 10W USB Power Adapter which is fine for inside the home but I want something for when I'm traveling and will either plug-in to the Car's Power Outlet or maybe even one of the chargeable battery packs I've seen around (where you can echarge or run iPad directly off a precharged battery pack). Either one would work... Can someone ecommend?

How To Charge With Charger
I have 2 issues regarding charging my Ipad. The first is that I am going back to the UK and want to take my Ipad with me. But I could not get it to charge the last time I was there.I tried to charge it through my laptop which I had been able to do from home and even with a UK Ipod charger. Nothing worked.How can I charge my Ipad while I am in the UK? This second is happening right now.It is connected to my computer, happily syncing, but it says it is not charging. Which is odd because it always used to charge this way.

Anyway To Recognize Charger
The chargers for iPod and iPad look identical. You have to look closely to read the fine print indicating which charger is for which device.If you accidentally plug an iPad into an iPod charger - no harm done, as the iPod charger runs at a lower wattage. But what happens if you accidentally plug an iPod into an iPad charger? Is there some protective circuitry that prevents the iPod from getting fried?I've already figured that at some point I'll screw these up - so I put some labels on the chargers just to be on the safe side.

Which Charger Or Dock Is Best?
I am not sure if I am right but is the Dock that I bought for the iPad charges slower than if I plugged the iPad using the Charger that came with the iPad (ie. plugged to the wall socket)?

I can't tell at the moment since both charge slow when the iPad is low of percentage.

Charge With 10W Charger While Using It?
so i know that ipad's are not charging with older MacBooks via USB.

But I am trying to charge my iPad with the 10w charger while using it. My battery is going from 17% to 18% to 17% ... Back and forth. Will iPad not charge while in use? Of note I am using a longer USB cable to connect to the 10w iPad charger but that shouldn't make a difference, no?

How long is it taking people to charge iPad and is it charging for you while in use?
