    I have an iPad two and I'm an American living in southern italy. Today to charge my iPad I tried plugging in my USB chord to a european power plug. My iPad recognized that it was plugged in bu it said "Not Charging". Then I tried plugging it into a laptop through a USB chord and it still said not charging. Can someone please help?

    Were you using the proper iPad charger - not an iPod charger or iPhone charger?

    Only the iPad charger will properly charge the iPad. A normal USB charger can only charge at 300mA whereas the iPad charger is 2.1A. So an iPad charges very slowly on a USB port or regular charger and the iPad indicates this with the 'Not Charging' message.
