Result:use extension cord to charge 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

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

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.

I have tried charging it with the wall unit charger it came with, I have tried to sync it with my nearly brand new Mac Book Pro, and several different electrical outlets, etc. Sometimes I can get it to say Not Charging and I guess it will charge in sleep mode that way, but i can barely get it to say that, only if I power the whole unit off, and then plug it in, then it says not charging.
