    Hi Everyone! I am new to this site.
    I have looked everywhere for an answer to my problem to no avail so I must assume I am more ignorant than the average Ipad user.
    It concerns the charging plug which came in the box.
    Two parts...I put them both together and connected the cable.
    Was successful in charging but found I had to wedge the two parts together to stop falling apart. What am I doing wrong?

    The two parts connect together in a particular way...it should be fine. Check Google images and compare images of the iPad charger you find to how yours is.

    The two parts of the charger click together fairly solidly. If you need to add a wedge either you haven't seated things home or you have a faulty charger. Obviously a trip to an Apple store would solve the latter issue.

    USB side of the cable goes into the charger. (the white block)
    The wider side goes into the iPad with the little rectangle logo on the top facing up.
    Easy. :)

    And might I recommend titling your thread something helpful that describes your problem such as "charger assembly issue" or something to that effect. It makes things easier. :)

    Thanks

    Thanks to everyone who replied
    Yes you are right I was not pushing the two parts together firmly enough .
    I was afraid to force it too much but obviously that was what the problem was.
    Thanks everyone. Easy when you know how!!

    Re the thread title, I don't think you've been stupid at all - you were sensible and careful! :)

    That's what I think. If you haven't been around electronics a lot then of course there will be some starter questions.
    Good to ask then destroy the iPad in the process.

    I have found that the Larger Hammer school of mechanics seldom works with electronics.
