    Hi, I just purchased my iPad 2 a day ago. I hooked it up to my laptop and it will sync and do everything I need it to except charge! I hooked it up to a wall outlet and it charges just fine. Please let me know why I am having an issue getting it to charge hooked up to my laptop. That is how I was planning on doing most of my charging. Any help would be appreciated.

    THanks

    Most computers will not have enough power to charge the iPad. Wall charger is usually the best way.

    Hi Mike - welcome to the forum - :)

    The wall charger that comes w/ the iPad2 provides a 10W electrical power supply which is not possible w/ a standard USB port (although this will provide a slower 'trickle' type charge and take much longer).

    This has been an oft discussed issue and plenty of threads and posts exist on the topic if you care to do some searching - good luck!

    I don't think that Asus is using a cable. I think it's just software that tells their motherboards to send more power to the USB ports. I have read about a lot of sync issues after it's installed.

    No sync issues whatsoever here. The Asus AI charger software works a charm with my iPad2...it charges via usb port on my laptop.

    Hi Everyone, one of the problems with ai charger is that it is really slow to charge my iPad. IchargeAndSync charges it at full spped by introducing house power into the equation while you sync. Really cool stuff. See www.ichargeandsync.com for more info and to get yours.

    Oh, I also meant to mention tht ai charger caused my iTunes to go unstable on my Windows 7 super powerful PC. IchahargeAndSync cleared up that problem.

    So, tell us...you have no affiliation with the company that *sells* this charger, right?

    Btw AIcharger works just fine on my Win7 machine.
