    if you are just using the same charger you do for your iphone/ipod in the car i dont think it will charge because it doesnt supply enough power.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    I see your question is being addressed in the other thread.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    Please read the rules too!!

    Unless you're using a charger that provides enough juice, you're probably getting only a trickle charge, which is probably why you're getting that message.

    If you want to charge faster, you need a charger that provides more juice, like this one:

    Griffin PowerJolt Car Charger for iPad, iPhone and iPod - Apple Store (U.S.)

    It doesn't have to be this brand, of course, but an iPad needs 2 amps. The typical iPod charger provides half the juice required by an iPad.

    Yes, the car charger does not support the iPad. It puts out too low a power to efficiently charge the iPad: all it does is a trickle charge.

    Check out [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004RRNJ8M"]this one[/ame] at Amazon. Includes car charger, wall charger, ear buds, 2 screen protectors & carrying case all for just $14.99. You'll have to use your own USB cable or try [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007RV3IE"]this one[/ame] for $1.27 (for a 3 foot cable) or [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003L18Z8E"]this one[/ame] for $2.40 (for a 6 foot cable).

    I can vouch that they all work with my iPad 2.

    Two threads merged.

    Messi1580... please do not post the same question in two places on the forum. It causes unnecessary confusion and duplication of effort, and is a contravention of Rule 4.
