    Hi,
    Just received my iPad2. Connected it via USB to PC. iTunes, photo sync etc. - everything works perfect.

    But on the upper right corner I see "Not Charging".

    It charges with from wall 220V with no problems.

    What is the problem with USB? USB works and charges all my mobile phones. Except iPad2.

    USB does not have enough power, only latest USB ports do. Happens to me too there is something on the Apple website, but I can't find it ATM.

    It really is charging, but very very slow. There is not enough power.

    I guess its pretty hard to read? Asus AI Charger does this. Its software. It's a workaround
    Asus came up with to compete with apples charging sys. It adds power to the USB bus.

    My system is a am2+ and it charges my iPad 2 with it installed.
    Ps it's software

    My 2010 MBP charges my iPad 2 (and my previous iPad) just fine. I haven't yet been able to get it to charge with a Windows PC USB. It has to do with the amount of power generated. You'll find this is the case with car chargers as well. If you turn your iPad off, it'll charge (but very slowly).

    Not sure is the AI Charger has been updated but near the end of 2010, there was lots of talk on the ASUS forum that folks were getting BSD's and having other problems. Hopefully, it's been updated and is working better now.

    It charges just fine via USB

    even though it says in is not charging. It does, however, charge at a slower rate than it would with the wall charger included with it.
