    It's not an issue if it doesn't annoy you. Has it only just started or was it always like this?

    just an update on the vibration problem with my ipad2,i just plugged in my macbook pro to charge and i get the same sensation when i touch that,i never noticed it before,wonder if its something to do with the aluminium case on both? strangely i feel a bit reassured now i feel it on both,i would be very interested to hear if anyone else has experienced anything similar.

    Further to my earlier post on my ipad2 vibrating while charging,I found my mbp was doing the same,well I just found a post on a forum that said if you plug the mbp in with the longer cable it won't vibrate,it's true it doesn't so thats one problem solved,now what I need to know is this-can I use the long cable from my mbp to charge my ipad2?the little plug fits but I was worried about actually connecting it to the mains,hope someone can advise.

    i found out that the reason you get that vibration is because the 3 pin plug supplied is only 2 core wire,the big pin is a dummy pin,its not earthed,you can prove this by putting your fingers on the back of the ipad then put your other hand on,the vibration then stops because you are grounding or earthing it,i connected my ipad cable to my mbp cable to charge my ipad and the vibration stops because the mpb cable is earthed.

    Thanks for the various updates on this - you've found a reason for a very interesting problem. If it's OK, I'll take a note of this thread and point Members in this direction when they have the same problem. Very interesting to know the final reason!!

    please do,i know from trawling google ect that a lot of people out there are experiencing the same thing,the only thing is now is that it will be a pain to keep swapping the cable,i have an appointment at the apple shop tomorrow so i will show them what i have discovered. p.s i cured the vibration on my mbp too by using the long cable supplied instead of the 3 pin plug.
