It works great - but no sync on iPad 3's
I am using this with an iPad 3 and it does exactly what I wanted - which is to charge my iPad from my PC. I am not sure if this is just an iPad 3 thing (not had any other iPad to test) but with the dongle plugged in iTunes does not see the iPad and so will not sync it - no problem as it just means I remove the dongle to sync and then put it back on to charge.
It is handy as I can sync on my home PC and then just take the dongle to work with me so that I can keep the iPad charged up.
I have not timed how fast it takes to charge the iPad from empty but due to the USB voltage I should imagine that it would take a lot longer than charging from the Apple mains adapter - once again this is not a big issue as it can just sit connected to the PC and stay topped up but if you are in a hurry or completely flat then go for the mains charger way.
Worth the money? well I have not seen anything else like this and it works and is easy to keep with the iPad for emergencies etc and I am guessing that Apple would as normal charge a small fortune for something like this - so I would say - yes definately worth it.
A great handy gadget to have - get one you will not be dissapointed.
