    Charging Lead

    Just had a nasty shock when I tried to charge my iPad 2, it refused to charge; first thoughts ......... a new iPad or an expensive repair! I "Googled" the problem and found that Apple had made changes to iOS 7 to stop the use of some third party charging leads. Yet another greedy ploy by Apple...
