Thread: Charging problems

    Default Charging problems
    Anyone else have problems charging? Mine will only charge via the wall charger, I've tried 3 different windows computers and none will charge via usb and my car charger that i use for my touch won't work either.

    Its not a problem, thats just the way it is. It will only charge when using the wall adapter. Here is the info about battery charging from the ipad user guide in safari.

    I've seen in the other ipad threads that it will only charge via a powered USB

    You can charge the iPad with USB but only if it follows complaince.

    Older, USB 2.0 ports deliver 0.5 amp, which is only enough to charge the iPad when it’s off. Newer machines that feature USB ports conforming to Battery Charging v1.1 standards, and the iPad’s own power outlet, have enough power that the iPad can draw the full 1.5 amps it needs to recharge the battery while it’s running, according to the USB Implementers Forum.

    A car charger has the same output as a wall charger, there's no reason why it shouldn't work

    Unless it's one of the 10's of thousands that pop up the "this is not a compatible device" warning.

    Grrrrrrrrrr

    It charges on my Macbook Air. Not super fast, but does.
