    Until now, my iPad has functioned flawlessly, but now when I plug it in, it will not charge. It has never charged when plugged into my laptop, but has always done so when plugged into the car or at home. Does anyone have a suggestion why this is or what I might do?

    It could be the charger, the cord, or the iPad itself. If you have spares for the first two give them a try. If the only thing common is the iPad then give Apple a call. If it's an iPad 2, then it should still be covered by the hardware warranty.

    When plugged into the laptop it is charging but it's more a trickle charge and the laptop just reports back that it's not. You can download a small program for you laptop called ASUS AI Charger that will show your ipad charging via the laptop.

    Does sound like your wall charger has gone bad. You can pickup a Belkin wall charger at Wallmart for pretty cheap

    USB2.0 does not provide sufficient power to charge the iPad. It does actually charge, but very slowly. I am led to believe that USB3.0 will charge an iPad but you would have to ask a user who has a newer computer than I do.

    I had the same problem so I bought a charging station for the iPhone and iPad. Charges quickly. I save the a
    Wall charger for trips when I usually just plug in all night.

    That seems a bit too good to be true. How does the software a able a USB port to have a higher voltage output to charge iPads etc? Surely it would affect other USB devices adversely? Has anyone tried it out? Does it work on all motherboards?

    yes i have tried it! i use it on all my computers and laptops! from all my old ones to new ones!

    basically what it does is bypass the voltage regulator of the computer and adds that extra "power" to the port to give the ipad the charging signal.

    my ports, devices and computers are still working 100% fine and ive been using it for at least 1 year and half now

    Tried it and it makes absolutely no difference at all. My iPad show's not charging when connected to the USB port.
