Ipad Not Charging
If your iPad refuses to charge, you shouldn’t get scared or annoyed, because most of the times the problem has something to do with the port you are using to power up your iDevice or the adaptor available. That’s why you should also keep close the original charging cable that the iPad came with and replace it only with chargers that are approved by Apple for iPad use.
If your iPad is not charging while connected to a USB port of your computer, then most likely the port doesn’t offer enough power for the iPad’s charging needs. If you own a Mac, you should know that not all models come with high-powered ports, especially if they are older. You will never be successful charging an iPad through the standard USB 2.0 port of a computer. So, if you own a PC, if you want to slightly charge your iPad you will have to let it charge in sleep mode. However, if a high-power port is not available, it’s best if you locate a compatible charger.
Another reason why your iPad might not be charging may be the charger cable you’re using. Although the iPhone and the iPod Touch comes with a similar 30-pin connector, they don’t have the same power requirements as the iPad. That means if you intentionally or by mistake use your iPhone’s charging cable, for instance, is very likely to get the “Not charging” message. However, if no other option is available, you will be able to partially charge your iPad using your iPhone’s power cable (that delivers sonly 50% of the power necessary) if you switch your iPad to sleep mode while charging it.
The iPad’s “Not Charging” message can also be caused by connection issues. If you determine that the cable you’re using is the right one and the wall socket adapter you’ve chosen is compatible with iPads, you should then make sure that the outlet you’re using is able to deliver its power to your iPad. What you should do is unplug the iPad and then check the docking port and the plug for debris that might be staying in the way of the connection. You should also take a look at the connection on the wall port and wipe the prongs by using a dry cloth. You should then reconnect the iPad and reattempt to charge it.
If none of these suggestions helps you get rid of the “Not Charging” message, you should check if the wall outlet is not broken by connecting another device. If everything seems to be in perfect shape, you should consider visiting an Apple store and letting professionals see if you’re not experiencing a sort of hardware problem.
