    Is the charger made for the iPad2? A standard usb charger does not put out sufficient current to cause the indicator to show a charge. The standard usb charger puts out about 1amp while the iPad2 car charger I have indicates 2.1 amps.

    I don't know if you can change the charing notification. However, lack of notification does not necessarily mean it is not charging. As posted by others, some charger put out less power than others. Sometimes, the iPad will not know it is charging on a low-powered charger. My suggestion is to ignore the lack of charge indication, use your existing charger, and listen to your music. If your iPad runs out of battery power under these conditions, then consider alternative methods.

    You need to make sure you buy a car charger rated at 2.1 amps, for a iPad 2 fast charge to take place. I can recommend the Griffin GC23095.

    Agree! The charger that comes w/ the iPad provides 10W of power, basically 5V w/ 2 amps - if an adapter w/ say half that power or a standard USB port on a computer is used, the iPad will indicate 'no charging' - now, there actually is a smaller 'trickle' charge from these less powerful sources but the iPad does not indicate that event.

    So, as already stated above, make sure that the charger you are using in your car is putting out 10W of power - appears that the recommended product by Griffin has that output - good luck! P.S. - welcome to the forum!

    You can use standard iPod car chargers, but they only trickle charge, so you'll get that message. If you want a faster charge, get an iPad-specific charger as mentioned. I can recommend the Griffin PowerJolt. I've used it for coming on two years, since iPad 1. I now use it to charge both iPad 1 and 2.

    By the way, be careful about not buying the wrong one if you want the 10W one. Griffin and other makers use the same model name brands to sell both iPod and iPad chargers, I've noticed. But the packaging should indicate 10W or 2.1 amp.
