IPad not charging
My iPad sometimes charges fast, sometimes slow (only a 10% increase in charged level over a whole night), and sometimes not at all. In fact sometimes it seems as if plugging it in is actually draining the power from it.
I am plugging it into the mains, not a PC, and I am using a proper apple charger. It always says itís charging.
I have tried restarting it (sometimes that works but not always) and have exited all the apps that were running.
Yesterday it was charging fine while playing music, but it then crashed out during playing a track, restarted itself, and then had the charging problem.
I suspect itís software rather than hardware since the problem is intermittent. Could something be going round in a loop in its little brain somewhere? I donít want to do a restart and lose all my stuffÖ
Itís an iPad 1, a year old.
Any thoughts? I canít be the only one with this problem, surely?
