    Hi, welcome! It does charge, just VERY slowly. The iPads require something like 10 amps, while the iPods are like 2 amps (notice how large the iPad charger is). So the computer just says "not charging".

    Anyway, enjoy your iPad!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    As the previous poster mentioned, the iPad has a 10W, 2A charger. A regular USB port on a computer can only charge at a fraction of this.

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!
