Info on the dreaded “not charging” iPad and iPad 2 screen + solutions

Simple tips for charging the iPad via USB | Digiupdateshttp://digiupdates.com/2011/simple-tips-for-charging-the-ipad-via-usb/What we found in all of our test is that although the iPad might say “not charging€ on the display, in reality, juice is still trickling to it and the iPad is in actuality still charging; albeit at a slower rate.
