    I don't know about long term use with this app. Batteries are a strange chemistry things and you should stay between the lines to get the most out your IPAD Battery. I had an old HP laptop charger which I used on my newer HP and it killed the battery in six months! I mean dead, no charge at all. After some research I found that laptop charger come in all sorts of amperage and charging voltages.

    I have the same Not Charging issue. on my windows laptop. But work fine on my new Macbook with USB 3. I have also discover that off brand charging cables will do the same thing. There is a reason why the apple chargers are thicker. My2C.

    It's really up to the pc's motherboard, if the iPad charges or not. And of course, if the usb port is older than v2, it's no cigar.

    There are some good replacement cables. Belkin's ones are good, for example.

    But one basic rule for everyone when charging any battery is not to have the device to heat up too much.

    Page 22 of your iPad manual. It needs the 10 watt Apple charger.

    I like this idea better "If my Wolfhound doesn't do it, I won't do it!"

    I totally agree with this post - the link provided works perfectly and enables even iPad 3 to charge direct from a PC (a lot of PC's and laptops will not charge from their USB ports but with this installed on your PC or Laptop it WILL) - try it - its free.

    Hmm, I don't know anyway, but I think using this software is okay since my iPad have no overheating issue while charging. I also think your situation was different. I'm writing this post with my HP laptop too, and it basically has serious problem with overheating though.

    I agree that it takes much longer when charging with the unsuitable cable. However my laptop hasn't got any hardware's problems yet :)
