    If you're using a wall adaptor, your iPad will generally recharge much more quickly than if you're trying to charge it via usb cable on your PC. Also, if you own an iphone, be sure you haven't grabbed the adaptor for that by mistake. My understanding is that the adapters for both devices are identical in appearance, but the iphone adaptor will charge more slowly.

    Hey thanks for your replies! I mostly charge it on my laptop. I took you advice and connect it on adaptor but still the same.

    To try ruling out possible problems:

    -- Plug into different outlet.
    -- Switch cord if you have another or can borrow one.
    -- Switch plug if you have another or can borrow one.

    If none of these makes a difference, you might have a bad cord and/or wall plug. If that's the case, just contact Apple or take them to a store for an exchange.

    Sometimes people get cords and/or plugs that are lemons. They're covered under warranty.

    Thank you guys for all your help. Now I tried another cable and it worked like a charm---but at least at this very moment.
