well, i just spoke with an apple customer service tech and he said the usb connection from the kit can "only import video and pictures from a camera" but did not specifically mention if the "flip camera" will work. if he said its "imports videos" i would assume the flip will have no problem in importing your videos. hope it helps

The first time I tried it it gave me an error about the device drawing too much power. Tried again and was able to import all videos from the camera but in the Photo.app it only shows a mp4 icon. This is a flip video HD (720p.)
I hope this gets remedied in a future revision because the iPad video format seems pretty similar.

No it will not. It is limited to only sd image files. Sorry!

I agree as it will NOT import from the FLIP. The problem is that the FLIP tries to charge up while connected to a any USB port. Since the iPad does not support that feature with USB devices it will give you an error message.
You MAYBE still might be able to import some video despite the error message but its rare real rare that it will happen or succeed.
