No it cant. It is too weak. It will take 24 hours of constant charging with the IPAD OFF to charge. The ipad needs a 2.1 amp charger. I bought this and it is awesome. Charges two devices at one time, and is capable of ipad charging. Built well too.

Amazon.com: PowerGen Dual USB 3.1A 15w High Output Car Charger for Apple iPad 2, New iPad 3 4, iPhone 5 4s 4 3 3Gs, HTC Samsung Motorola Android Phones (USB Cable NOT included) - white: Kindle Store

Seems like they are sold out, but if you can find it somewhere else, it is an awesome charger.

BTW, if you try and plug it in, your ipad will think it's charging and show you its charging...however, it wont be and the battery will continue to drain.

Don't have one yet but was thinking about buying one so I was curious to know beforehand.

I guess if I get one I'll just use the power inverter built into the center console with the wall charger. Was just hoping to not have wires hanging everywhere if I did up a dash mount for the ipad.
