Doesn't Charge When Plugged Into The PC?

I just purchased a 32GB iPad 3G/Wifi model. Overall I am very happy with the product however, to things baffle me about Apple decisions. Number one why is a product that by itself with tax is around $800 dollars have such a short charging cord? This is just a ridiculous choice on Apples part....I am extremely disappointed with that aspect.

Next I plug my iPad into my desktop PC (non-Mac) to sync it to my master iTunes library and I notice while it is plugged into the PC it does not charge the battery??? Seriously......I go to the Apple store in Waikiki today and plug my iPad into a brand new MacBook Pro and have the same problem. On site tech's state that there currently are many computers not powerful enough to charger the iPad via USB.....Seriously Apple??????

Last but certainly not least, the iPad is essentially a giant iPhone with an awesome screen and features however, why does Apple not provide an Apple logo lint free cloth like they do with every iPhone on the planet???? I know Apple are marketing genius's and all but come on now another way Apple has seriously disappointed me. I hope Steve himself gets wind of a post like this and they fix these issues ASAP!!!

IPad 2 :: Will Not Charge When Plugged In?
Until now, my iPad has functioned flawlessly, but now when I plug it in, it will not charge. It has never charged when plugged into my laptop, but has always done so when plugged into the car or at home.

Battery Losing Charge While Plugged In AND In Use
I got my ipad opening day. By the end of the day, I noticed that even though I had the ipad plugged into the supplied charger with supplied cable, the battery was slowing draining at a rate of approximately 5% every hour. So I called apple care and they decided to send me a new replacement. However, the behavior is the same with this iPad. We own two of them, so I did try the power adapter and cable from the second ipad and again, the behavior is the same. I would like to see if anyone else notices this with their iPad if they could at least give it a try:1) Fire up bluetooth and WiFi, plug in the supplied cable and charger.2) Crank up the brightness.3) Run an app that is demanding on the device. I love drum apps and will drum along with my macpro playing iTunes on the MacPro and listening to the iPad via GarageBand so that it plays on the nice set of speakers.

Losing Power Whilst Plugged In On Charge?
When using the new iPad, just for casual browsing on wifi, it loses power even though it is plugged into the mains using the charger that came with it.

My iPad 2 didn't do this.

IPad 1 Will No Longer Sync / Charge When Plugged Into MBP
I finally got around to updating the iPad to iOS 5 and when I go to plug in the iPad via the cable to my laptop (MBP) it will not charge or sync, and I dont hear the little "beep" when I used to plug it in. iTunes does not even register that a device is connected. At first I thought it might be my laptop so I plugged my iPhone in and voila, works every time (in all 3 ports as well) take the iPhone off, nothing. So I thought, I am going to use the cube charger that comes with the iPhone to see, sure enough, nothing, the ONLY thing that will charge it is the iPad charger itself.

It Doesn't Charge Over USB On MAC Or PC?
My iPad does not seem to charge over USB on my Mac Mini or Desktop PC. It says "Not Charging" next to the battery. It does however charge just fine with the AC Adaptor.

Is this normal behavior? I should also mention that it's NOT plugged into a hub, it's directly into the mac mini/desktop.

Doesn't Charge From Usb After 4.2 Update?
I updated my ipad last night, and everything went well except when I saw that after the update finished the ipad said "Not charging" in the higher right corner, when before the update it was actually charging.
I didn't change anything just installed the update. So what is the deal? Is this new update making the ipad consume more energy and cannot be charged via usb anymore?

NewPad Doesn't Appear To Charge At All Well From USB While Being Used
Noticed that newPad doesn't appear to charge at all well from USB while being used. Tried a number of older chargers out of curiosity: stock iPod charger & iPhone 4 charger (both 5v 1a) result is power drain while iPad in use, and several hours to charge while not in use. iPad 10w (5.1v 2.1a) charged very slowly while iPad is in use.

WiFi Doesn't Charge Quickly While Connected To USB To My MAC?
I'm aware that the iPad doesn't charge quickly while connected by USB to my Mac. I've been using the supplied wall adaptor to charge it and it seems to take a really long time to charge compared to other Apple products. I had a 50% battery life remaining this morning and plugged it in to charge. Four hours later, it's up to 90%. That implies it would take about 10 hours to recharge the iPad from a dead battery. Does this sound right?

Doesn't Charge Via Third Party/unofficial USB Cables
This is probably said elsewhere but I've realised that my pad will NOT charge via some third party USB cables. It will transfer data and sync with iTunes but will not give any charge either via USB to computer (which is normal as the output generally isn't powerful enough on a laptop) NOR will it charge when the USB is used with the official Apple plug.I need to use the official USB leads with the plug for it to charge.

Apple Wireless Keyboard Doesn't Work - Prime Doesn't Go Much Faster ?
Anyways, there's lots to like about the device and Android, but I've got two problems:

1. The Apple Wireless keyboard doesn't work. Yes, I tried Bluekeyboard JP and Bluetooth Keyboard Easy Connect. No luck.

2. PDFs. I always felt like the iPad 2 was a little slower than I'd like on page rendering. The Prime doesn't go much faster (if at all)...

Only Charges When Plugged Into A/C - Not USB
When I plug in my iPad to sync, it does not charge the battery. So I have to plug it in to the A/C to charge the battery once I'm done with the sync. Really a pain and certainly not what I expected. The iPod's sync and charge simultaneously. Anyone else having this problem.

Reboot Itself After Plugged Into Charger.
Has anyone else had this happen. My iPad for the first time since launch dropped to 10% battery, I plugged it in to charge it, before i went to bed. I place it on the stand and noticed it was rebooting. I waited. My wallpapers were the same but the front page icons were default with the message on how to move em, while the rest of the icons were all over the next 6 or 7 pages. I had to spend some time reorganizing, but I never seen this happen before. I was charging and went to open the ABC app to watch something before I went to be. What is also odd, is the device seems a little snappier now. I have turned it off and rebooted it 4 or 5 times before. What causes this?

Has anyone else experienced the Ipad dying when plugged in? It will be at 100% with the battery bolt showing charging, and when I watch a movie, or play a game the battery will start dying. Would like to know if this is what it is supposed to do, or it may be a software glitch not letting the Ipad know to use AC power instead of the battery when plugged in.
