How can I convert mobi books to ePub for my iPad?

Fisnllly F October 31, 2013

Hello, I have collected hundreds of mobi books on my computer windows 8, and I got a iPad Air.  I want to read mobi books on my iPad Air, but when I drag it to iTunes, and sync to iPad, I didn’t find them on my iPad Air.  Some people said iPad doesn’t accept mobi format so please help!  Are there any ways to batch convert mobi books to ePub for my iPad reading?

    If you need to make your own ePub books, you may met some difficult in the format.
    Some .mobi books -especially if they were generated with Kindlegen 2.x- have a .kf8 version AND an old .mobi version inside (all the more, files generated by the service of Kindle Direct Publishing, are .mobi files). When we use KindleUnpack to unpack that kind of files, then the KindleUnpack produces an .epub book -for the .kf8 part of the original mobi- and others files for the .mobi7 part. We must work in Sigil with the .epub generated from the .kf8 part. Of course, if the book is an old one (previous to .kf8/azw3) then things are more difficult. Still we can build an epub with the .html, .ncx and .opf generated by KindleUnpack and the epub will work in ADE but won't validate at Epubcheck. If we want to be more prolix, then as you say, we have to use a lot of regex to clean de .html and after that to write a css stylesheet.

    Or if you feel what I say very confused, you can directly try some other software to convert your mobi books to ePub, easy and save time. There are many program can do it, like: Coolmuster ePub creator and more...

    Vibosoft ePub converter,

    iStonsoft mobi to ePub converter

    Coolmuster ePub creator

    and more...

    they works well in converting mobi to epub format, but it is a pity that they're not free!
