Can I use a generic wall socket adapter to charge my iPad2 or do I have to use a genuine Apple charger?

Will the iPad only recognize the 10W Apple adapter or will generic ones do, assuming they can handle the power rating?

    Generic ones will be fine, and no matter what the power rating of it is; the Apple charging cable will only take 10W. (The same way the iPhone would just take 5W if you used the iPad charger to charge it).
