So given that scenario, does anyone know how to get Kindle books from Calibre into the Kindle app on an iPad. (No, I do not want to strip the DRM as I do not feel that is fair to the authors. But in my case I bought and own the books. I just want to be able to read them on the device of my choice.)

Thanks in advance.
I might be missing something but if the books are in Calibre doesn't that mean that they have the drm stripped already?

Only if you have installed and configured a plugin to deal with DRM.

By default calibre leaves any DRM present in books intact.

OK - personally I wouldn't put a locked book into calibre, but I guess there may be reasons.

I ran into a similar issue with one co-worker. He and his wife have been using the same Amazon account for several years. When they were splitting up, she got to retain the Amazon account while he got to keep the dog. What we did was to have him create a new account on Amazon, de-register his Kindle app on his iPad and register it to his new account, setup calibre and the Kindle app on his laptop with the old account settings, download all the purchased ebooks, bring them into calibre removing the DRM and email them to his new Send-to-Kindle email address. About 130 ebooks in total so this worked for him.

In this situation, I highly recommend removing the DRM and retaining DRM-free copies.

After doing that, and making sure you have backups, delete the books from the Amazon account that you are having to give up. That way you can be assured that you're not defrauding the authors in any way,
