    I actually just bought a new laptop about a month ago for $350 from Best Buy that has totally blown me away. It is an Asus K53 and it has a USB 3.0 port but it also has a USB port that does what is called "Quick Charge" and it does charge my new iPad and will even charge it while the laptop is sleeping or turned off. This is a great feature and has come in handy on a couple of occasions while sitting in a hospital room with limited plug in accessibility.

    So look for this feature when shopping for new laptops!

    How long does a full charge take compared to the time it takes with the normal charger?

    I haven't tested that as I've only used the charging feature 2-3 times and probably had 40-50% when I plugged it in to charge. From the little experience I do have it has seemed to work as good as the wall charger though.

    "with your laptops charger input being about 5v ...."
    Incorrect : Laptop power supplies range from 15-20 volts not 5V
    Yes I know all of this but it's much simpler to quote it the way I did as most people have no Idea what amps and ma are, not making a big difference as they're not in need to know the outputs, if they were I would've stated them. Thanks for the response.

    Gigabyte have a desktop that provide a similar feature. According to the spec their mb is capable of delivering 3X the current of a standard usb 3.0. This means that it is capable of charging a 13.5 W device. If this device is the Ipad 3 then the charging time will result to 3 - 4 hours based on my calculation. This is more or less faster compared to the Ipad 3 charger unit can provide.

    Your iPad should connect wirelessly, ensure you're signed in on both devices on the same email account, also ensure you're connected to the Internet on both devices.check that you've successfully and fully set up your iPad. Anything else just let me know, I'll do my best.

    To connect wirelessly to iTunes on your computer, you must have your iPad connected to the mains charger.
    Took me a little reading to get it working.
