5. Can't charge iPad over a USB port First I tried it on my USB hub, then on the powered USB port on my MacBook Pro, but nope...no juice�not even when the iPad's syncing with iTunes. Looks like the only way to charge the iPad, apparently, is using the included AC wall adapter. Good thing the iPad's battery is rated for 10-plus hours.Is this true? I just read it over on Yahoo!
If a PC USB port will charge the iPhone 3GS, will it also charge the iPad?The reason I ask is that my iPad will not charge from ANY PC USB 2.0 port on any of my 9 PC's and laptops.But the same ports will charge all my other Apple devices using the same cable.

Charging Options - Charge On A Computer's USB Port ?
Mar 14, 2010
The iPad includes a 10 watt charger. I'm not sure what that means, but I assume it puts out more power than a standard USB port. It does say on Apples website that the iPad will charge on a computer's USB port.What I am wondering is:Will the iPad charge faster on it's own charger vs. a computer's USB port?Will other USB wall or car chargers work with the iPad?
Is It Possible To Charge An IPad With Any Charger Which Fits Into Its Port?
Aug 29, 2012
I am not an iPad user but planning to buy an iPad but before that I want to get some information about it.Actually I have heard that iPad only charges through its original charger.I am a regular nokia user and have found that my present mobile charges with any charger which fits into its port.even I am able to charge with USB cable.Is it possible in iPad or not?
I have a simple question for you today. I own two TC, a late 2009 MC343LL/A model (1 TB) and an early 2009 double-band model (500 GB).The question is: is the integrated USB port an high-power 2.0 port?I tried to charge two iPhone simultaneously through the same Time Capsule 2.0 USB port (using a simple USB switch) and it works. I can charge two iPhones simultaneously.So, if I can charge two iPhone at the same time, could I properly charge an iPad?(I haven't got the iPad yet xD)
Unable To Synchronise Wireless/USB Port Not Charging
Apr 7, 2010
Apple needs to consider wireless sync with iTunes based on the fact that the USB port does not provide enough power to charge the iPAD. I now have to charge using the wall charger then unplug this to sync with itunes then of course back again.Zune has had wireless sync over wifi since day one.OS4.0 wish list.
I have no trouble sending gmail mail via the Mail app at home, but mail will not send at work. I am guessing that the port number could be an issue, but this is not editable as far as I can tell, and even if it was I wouldn't know what port to change it to.
Unable To Charge The Battery/cannot Charge More Than 8%?
Nov 27, 2010
This is a FYI of my personal problem.I have an Ipad, a morning decided to charge it with a "OEM" china 6 ft cable and wont reach the charge after 8%,
I went crazy.... start to troubleshoot and found out that thre china 6ft cable, maybe don't have the same pins, same cable specifications causing a weak current, I tried with a original cable short version and wala! is getting warm and charging as normal.
i'm from germany and we bought 6 ipads last weeks. one of them is making trouble while charging: my pad ahhh while it's connected to the 10 w power adapter using it is impossible because the touch screen don't react on my touches and makes what it wants to.
New iPad owner here. I was wondering if it's normal for the iPad to only charge from the wall charger and not via USB. It syncs up fine but I get the "Not Charging" message as long as its connected to my computer via USB.
Information: iPad iOS 4 also have a Custom built PC runningWin 7 32 Bit Pro
My question is that I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this, my iPad will not charge while plugged in via USB port on my PC. Anything else I plug in charges fine. Any help will be appreciated!!!
I got my iPad a couple of days ago. When I connect it to the USB port on my PC it will sync with iTunes and do everything it's meant to. However at the top of the iPad it will say "Not Charging" next to the battery icon. It will charge when connected to the mains outlet but not via PC. The USB ports on my PC are 2.0. (MY iPhone charges fine when connected to these ports also).
