    Are you using an iPad or iPod charger? The iPad charger can charge at 2 A (amps) but other chargers cannot meet this.

    Using the charger which was supplied. Strangely it starts to charge when I swap plugs but again only briefly.

    Me Too

    I had the same problem with the "original" charger that came with my iPad 2. The little "lightning bolt" would only come on (to indicate the tablet was charging) after I jiggled and jiggled the plug-end of the charger in the AC outlet. It was a very delicate maneuver to keep everything in a charging mode.

    I went to our local WalMart and got a iPad replacement for about $30 and it now charges perfectly every time without twiddling with any part of the connection.

    I also returned the "old" charger back to the store in the original packaging so it really only cost me gas money to get a charger that works. I believe that the new chargers have got some inherent defect where electrical contact is being lost.

    If I take apart the plug and put it back together and plug it in it will start to charge again! Hopefully I ca pick up a new one but my nearest apple store is not close.

    I took mine apart numerous times but it had ZERO effect. I also kept checking my electrical outlet...I moved my whole charging apparatus to several other outlets but nothing changed. This lead to my action to replace the Apple charger.

    I have the same problem, my iPad 2 is just a week old and since I started charging it, I have to plug and replug the AC adapter to the ipad so the charge would reach full charge of 100%.

    There were several instances when I left it for about 4 hours and the charge was just 85% with no electric icon on the battery. I always ended up unplugging the AC adapter to the wall and replugging it back in to get a full charge. Very annoying and I want answers from Apple. I will contact them this week.
