    Hello everybody,
    When I connect my ipad mini with my windows 7 PC with itunes in the upper right corner appear the following :
    "not in charge"
    Anyone have the same problem ?
    Can be depend on itunes version ?
    The other stuff (sync with the library, apps , music, etc,etc,) all goes good.
    Pleas let me know,
    Reagards,
    Brunix

    it's a design feature for all iPads (including the Mini) - they don't charge from a computer (unless that computer has a high-power USB port). The iPad draw more power than most computer USB ports provide, so Apple made it that they would tell you they are not charging so you'd use a wall socket.

    Actually, they are charging, it's just such a light trickle charge that it's not registering.

    This is all normal behavior - so it means your Mini is working fine.

    Hope this reassures.

    It's still charging, just very very slowly. At least on my iPad Mini anyway.

    As everyone had mentioned already, your PC's USB port is only supplying low power. Install AI Charger and your problems are solved. I have this installed on one of my PCs since my iPad 1 :)

    Download & install: ASUS Ai Charger - Quick charge your iPod, iPhone and even iPad!

    Even though it says not charging, the iPad Mini will charge through the USB port on a computer. It just trickle charges, taking a very long time to complete the charge.
