    Why does my iPad say not charging at top right when plugged up via USB?

    Because it isn't. LOL
    No, seriously I think it has been shown that it does actually charged via USB but at a very slow rate. The power source of the USB is not strong enough to charge the iPad so you need to plug it to the wall outlet for charging.

    If you have a recent MAC, it will charge properly, if you have a newer motherboard in a PC with the higher output USB ports it will charge. Otherwise, that's why it came with a charger just for the iPad. Technically speaking, most USB ports put out 0.5 amps @ 5 volts, the iPad charger puts out 2.1 amps @ 5v. That's what the iPad requires to charge fast, but it will still charge up on the USB ports, just slower.

    You probably did not understand the instructions.
    It is a USB cable connected to a power supply.

    It does not charge while the screen is on. It will charge, albeit slow, when the screen is off. It will take about 8 hours for a full charge from 0%.

    Using an app that changes the voltage of a USB port is a bad idea and will harm (eventually) any system for which it was not designed. AiChargerAP is meant to run on specific ASUS motherboards, not all computers.
