I use various chargers depending on my situation. I bought a Belkin power bar with two USB outlets. That works. So does the original iPad charger. The iPhone charger does not.
In my car and truck I have a Monster cable twin USB outlet that charges iPad and iPhone simultaneously.

Got my ipad last May, the wall charger has stopped working after only 16 months. The cable is fine works from my daughters wall charger. I have tried to charge of a desktop but i get not charging message next to the battery icon. What am I doing wrong or is their an Apple specfic charging system? Thanks in advance, as I have read eslewhere this may be a common problem. I was hoping that my desktop usb would allow for charging while at the firehouse.
Use the specific charger for iPad. The USB port of a pc doesn't supply the right wattage for the iPad hence you get the not charging message.Originally Posted by firedog83
Thank you quake, thought this might be the case as we are all beholdent to the manufactures no matter what product. Oh well.
Your USB connection will actually charge the iPad. It's just at too slow a rate to activate the charging symbol. In the worst case, it will slow down the rate of discharge.
