    Hello everbody.

    I wanted to charge my iPad and went my room. When I was walking, I dropped the charger. Now when I plug it in it doesn't charging. When I shake it does not make any noise as usual. Now, Will I have to buy new one ? Is it completely useless anymore ? I have an iPhone and iTouch but they don't work on iPad.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I don't think you should hear anything when you shake an iPad charger. I don't with mine.

    The charger contains circuit boards so if the drop was hard enough you certainly could have damaged it.

    How old is it?

    If under warranty just say it stopped working, provided it has no physical damage

    So there's no turning back, right ? I was preparing a presentation and this thing happened. My iPad's battery is about die. What should I do ? I must finish presentation and it is 2 o'clock in the morning here.

    Just a month. But I bought it when I was in abroad. And it doesnt have guarantee. Also there's no AppStore in my country.

    Try using your iPhone charger and keep it connected to your iPad while you're working.
    Turn down your screen brightness at notch too.

    You can charge an iPad with an iPhone charger it just takes a lot longer.

    Let me know how it turns out.

    Just realised it is an ipad 3

    You could try third party usb charging adapters, test them out first if you can, as they may charge an ipod/iphone but not an ipad.

    Have you tried plugging it into a computer?

    I'll buy a new charger online. Now I'm charging it over the computer by using Asus Software. I'll show the charger to my father when he wake up. Maybe he can open it do something. (I have no hope by the way)

    Belkin makes a 120 volt six outlet box that plugs into an existing duplex outlet. It has USB ports with enough available current to charge the new iPad. I ought mine from Costco's warehouse.
