    I don't know if this has come up but, when I plug into a pc, the batt percentage marker changes to read "Not Charging". However, after I unplug it, the batt percentage has increased......sometimes to 100% if I leave it plugged long enough.

    Now, is it really charging or not....????

    Does anyone know? Has this issue been hashed out here before?

    Pc charging isn't usually any good, as most pcs can't deliver the juice. Wall charging is the main sure fire way to charge

    Oh, I agree. I was just wondering. I sync to a PC at home. But I also use Xilisoft iPad Manager on my PC at work to manage some things into and out of the iPad. While it is plugged in I get the no chage msg....but the batt level always goes up. So I am wondering what the truth is.

    When plugged into a USB port, generally the iPad is just being trickle charged. There is nothing wrong with that, I keep mine plugged into my laptop all day at work and it just keeps it topped up for when I need to use it without a power source.

    Always worth checking your PC manufactures website for updates too.

    All USB ports (except powered hubs such as those that plug in to the mains) can only provide 500mA per port which might not be enough to charge an iPad depending on other devices that are connected at the time.

    That's really good to know. Several guys here at work sync their iPhone to their laptop.....and complain about how long it takes to charge....they will be happy about this!

    I think that a complete discharge and a slow recharge is probably good for the battery occasionally.....maybe once a month. At least that's the case for most Lithium Ion Batteries.

    the ipad charges at 2.1mA which is slow but good for a healthy long lasting battery:)

    the reason i got excited was that da place where i live suffers frequent power shortage! so the electricity comes for like an hour and then 4 avg of 3 hrs its CUT-OFF!!!:mad:

    i also bought a backup battery dock for ipad rated 5000mA for 30 dollars! and BOY! I wasted my money! its charging time was 10 freaky hrs
    and charged the ipad upto 20%!!!! really pissed me off!
