Result:ipad power cord problems

Hi all,I have an older iBook with the power cord that connects to the power adapter after you remove a square connector. It looks like the power adapter that comes with the ipad has the same configuration. Does anyone know if I can take the same approach as I am doing with my iBook to extend the length of the power cable?Thanks,Ed iMac 15 Flat Panel Mac OS X (10.3.x)...|power-cord-ibook-power-adapter-ipad

Ive notice that at the Apple store i visited, that most iPads on display had the power cables exposed or the cable about to break. Ive had that problem w other power cables, and is usually at the end of the cable where it meets w the attachment that goes into the unit. Perhaps is the abuse that these display units take, but if that is any indication, Apple should consider a solution for the power cables attachments. gateway laptop Windows Vista...|power-cord-cable-ipad

As you know, the ipad cord for charging is VERY short, so I sometimes need to use an extension cord. I noticed that when I slide that plug piece out of the ipad cord, it had same connector as my powerbook cord which I havent needed lately and it fits perfect. Is there any reason this cant be safely used, like maybe some voltage issue or something else I know nothing about?Thanks 12 Powerbook G4 1GHz and ipad 16GB Mac OS X (10.3.x) Compaq Presario F700 Vista...|powerbook-g4-cord-extension-cord-ipad

For example, I have an Altec Lansing iPod/iPhone stereo... but naturally, I cant set my ipad into the dock... or, cant use an extension so I can use my iPhone as a 'remote control'.*Product Suggestion... either a "wired, male to female 30 pic connector extension cord"...AND/OR a SMALL, bluetooth "receiver", that can plug into the docking port, and wirelessly receive the ipad/iPod/iPhone output....|apple-connector-extension-cord-cord-male-connector-female-socket-usb

I just recently purchased my ipad and noticed that I might not be using the power button correctly.I am able to power down succesfully without any problem, but Im a bit confused on how long I need to hold down the power button to power up. Sometimes it seems that pressing the button once with a single click powers up. Other times it seems I must press the button slightly longer before it will power up.Can anyone comfirm how long I must press the power button?Thanks PC Windows XP...|power-button-long-hold-power-ipad

Does anyone know if its okay to use the extension cord that comes with MacBook pros on the ipad? If youre 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. Id like to use that with the ipad if its not a problem.
