Connecting Ableton Push to iPad

I've been using Apples lightning to USB adapter to connect a midi keyboard to my iPad for a while now, however I'm now looking to use my push as a midi controller for my iPad. When I connect it to my iPad (with the power source plugged in) it states that push uses too much power. Is there 1) a way I can overcome this and 2) any good apps that have support for push or that I could use push with.

    I don't believe it could be possible for Push to work on an iPad.  It requires Ableton Live to function at all beyond just the most brain-dead simple of MIDI interfaces, and as you've discovered its power draw is pretty high.  Also myself I've discovered that Push won't work when connected through any external interface (other than a standard hub) due to it using Python.  I highly doubt there's any way to make it work with iOS but if you ever figure it out, do tell!  =)
