Doesn't Charge When Plugged Into The PC?

May 18, 2010

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 Air :: Doesn't Charge Unless Plugged Into Mac

Sep 11, 2014

I'm thinking of getting the iPad Air. I currently have a Mini and I love it but I am looking for a change.My plan is to take my iPhone and my daughter's older, hand me down, doesn't charge unless plugged into the Mac iPad 2 and get Apple GCs for them. If I am right, it'll be about $225 towards. She will get the Mini.

Do you think the Air will drop in price with the new one coming out? I can't remember if the others have when newer came out. I probably have a better chance of it happening at stores besides Apple.

Battery Losing Charge While Plugged In AND In Use

Nov 26, 2010

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.

IPad :: Won't Charge When Plugged To The Wall

Jul 1, 2014

The iPad was normal until today. When plugged to the wall, the Ipad was charging correctly and it was showing "charging". When I came back today to charge it, the iPad wasnt charging and showed "not charging" even if it was plugged to the wall. This usually happens with a computer but now it happened using the wall. Sometimes it did not even showed "not charging" like the iPad was not charging AT ALL even if it was plugged in. The computer does not recognize the iPad anymore. 

I tried everything, from checking all my settings and switching options to make the battery better to power off and power on. I did some research on the Internet and I found nothing to solve my problem ...However, this post explains well my situation: [URL] ....

Please note that the cable and the adapter are working fine because I tested them with other Apple devices.

IPad 1 Will No Longer Sync / Charge When Plugged Into MBP

Oct 18, 2011

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.

Doesn't Charge From Usb After 4.2 Update?

Nov 23, 2010

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

Mar 18, 2012

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?

Oct 30, 2010

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

Apr 19, 2012

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.

IPad 1 :: Doesn't Charge Even After 5 Hours Of Charging

Sep 1, 2014

My Ipad 1 was left with 58% battery charge when I decided to charge it through the wall socket. After leaving it to charge for at least 5 hours, I went back to take a look and the ipad was still charging, except it has a black screen with the charging logo on it.  

I unplugged the ipad from the charging cable and it showed me the "Connect to charger" logo. I plugged it back into the wall socket to charge and attempted to switch it back on. 

The ipad doesnt switch on.  

I tried the "Home and Power" button to reset my ipad but it does not solve my problems. 

I tried the "Toggle the mute button for a few times before pressing the home and power button" but it does not work as well. 

I tried using different chargers and cables to charge it but it still show me the same "charging" logo. (The Battery sign) 

I tried plugging it to my laptop to try to restart it but it also doesn't solve my problems. (Still the battery sign)
