So I got an iPad 3 the other day yesterday found that the device has been having charging problems. I get about 1% charger per every half hour, which I think may be safe to assume is too slow. I tried changing up the cable with another and plugged in the computer and got a message saying 'Not Charging' on the top, which I understand is to be expected. I checked out the apple forums and noticed there's a pretty big thread regarding this issue.
I'm curious, is anyone in the Tested audience having similar problems? Or am I missing something?
@skywing: how well does it charge plugged into the wall?
I'm guessing your USB ports might not be supplying enough power to the iPad or something.
@nickb64: Sorry I don't think I phrased that well in my first post, charging plugged into the wall, I get 1% charge gain per half hour, so about 2% per hour plugged in with the packed in plug.
I know you've already tried another cable, but I'd try another. I've got a stack of dock cables here and I've got a few that don't charge the iPad or charge time is very slow. They work fine on the iPhone and iPod though. I'm not an electrician so I have no idea why. I saw a thread somewhere about issues with slow charging over a long 3rd party cable and the people there were talking about added resistance and what not. Went over my head though. The only other thing I can suggest is to make sure that the charger is the 10W ipad charger and not an iphone one. They look near identical.
Damn no edit. Should also mention that the my cables that have issues with the new iPad, work fine on my old iPad.
Just an update people:
Today I went to my local apple store and they changed out my iPad 3 for another. All is well!!!
