    This white adaptor for wall plugs, to charge up iPad does nothing. A USB 2.0 port does charge her up, but upon many hours. Are iPad's batteries f*cked?

    A pc USB port does not supply enough current to charge an iPad any faster then trickle charging. It will take ages charging on a PC, because they don't supply the 10A usually draws while charging.

    If your wall charger does not work, it might be broken, any Apple Store will replace it.

    I was wondering about the USB charger as well, as mine wasn't getting charged. My AC Wall charger does keep it charged up in short order. Was news to me about the charging difference.

    if you change another style ,like that one with output current: 2.1A,I believe this is very useful to speed up the charging time
