APPLE IPHONE AND IPAD CHARGERS?

I have a family member who just moved out of the country and when he sold his car, he forgot to take his iphone and ipad car chargers with him.  I was thinking of buying him new chargers and sending them down to him, seeing as we do not know if there are any Apple stores where he just moved to.  He has an iPhone 3G or 3GS and a first generation iPad (the one with 3G and wi-fi).  Does anyone know what car chargers both devices require?

iPhone/iPod charge with .5 to 1A chargers, most any car USB charger will work.

 

iPads need 10A, which is tricky to get in a car charger. You'd need to buy one that specifically says "charges iPad"

I believe you mean 10 W (not 10 A).  [5V at 2A = 10W]

 

I just checked my iPad charger at it stated "10W USB Power Adapter"

Yep. That's what I meant. If you've ever looked at your iPad when plugged into either an iPhone or your computer, it indicates it is plugged in and not charging... not getting enough juice.
