    Suddenly I'm not able to charge my iPad battery...at all! I've tried it plugged into outlets, and also through the keyboard/docking station...nothing! I'm now down to 17% power and very nervous! I've done a lot of Googling on this but most problems seem to talk about the USB charging...not much to be found on outlet charging problems.
    Anyone have any suggestions?? I've tried it in sleep mode, while it's on, and when it's completely shut down...nothing!

    If you have tried it by the mains and USB I would take it to the apple store see what they say or where ever you bought the iPad from.

    I can't think of what else to try sorry.

    Hope you get it sorted.

    Likely a faulty charger or cable. Try plugging in to the USB port as a final test
    Take the iPad and power supply to apple store The will decide what to do with it

    If you happen to have an iPod or an iPhone try a different cable... And even the mains..... Otherwise take it back....

    Time for confession (sigh)...there was absolutely nothing wrong with the iPad (but there was a lot wrong with me!) Long story short: I have a Kindle DX which has the same type of USB cord & electrical plug attachment. Have you guessed already? I had put the Kindle plug onto the iPad cord!! It fit, but it's not compatible. I had forged ahead and done a restore and then a reinstallation of the OS. So...five hours later I saw the iPad plug sitting there...lesson learned!!
