    Hi, my IPad-3 does not get charged from my Laptop, whereas, it only gets charged through 10W power cable. I would appreciate if anybody could give me the reason for not charging. Thanks

    USB does not supply sufficient power to charge the iPad. It will charge very slowly, but the charging symbol will not show up.

    I should add that USB3.0 supposedly supplies enough power, but my computer only has USB2.0, so I can't vouch for that.

    hi Kevin, thx for yr advice. when I charge my IPad thru my Laptop, it just write on the top right corner Battery sign 'Not Charging'. It means, it does not get charged.

    You will always see "Not Charging" when the iPad is plugged into USB2.0, however it will charge sufficiently to maintain charge, or at least slow down the discharge. Eventually, it might even fully charge, but it is going to be a slow process, even if you have the screen turned off.

    When charging using USB 3.0 from my HP DV7 laptop:
    • SYS Activity Manager Plus indicates that it IS Charging
    • The screen battery indicator says "Not Charging"

    SYS Activity Manager Plus (for Memory, Processes, Disk, Battery, Network, Device Stat & Performance Monitoring) is one of the relatively few paid apps that I have bought yet (and well worth the 99 cents).

    There is an adapter cable for cheap on amazon that "upgrades" to allow for USB 3.o charging.....works with stock ipad cable. $7

    BoxWave iPad Charging Adapter, Allows You To Charge Your iPad 3/iPad 2/iPad on ANY Computer or USB Hub for Compatibility With Generic Chargers

    Works great

    Hmmm. Interesting. Does the battery percentage increase over time?
