Ipad 2 not charging - Picture courtesy from www.jasonslater.co.uk

Many users complaint that their iPad2 can’t be charged from the PC, they will get “Not Charging” error whenever they connect the iPad2 to the PC/Laptop USB port. It is simply because PC USB port doesn’t provide enough power to charge the iPad2. The iPad2 requires 2amp for charging but PC can only give out 1amp.

The iPad will be charge when you put it into sleep mode. But it will take long time as the charging is quite slow.

The fix for now is to install Asus Ai Charger software; it tweaks the power of the USB port of the PC, enough for the user to charge the iPad2. But beware, not all motherboard supports this software, some of you might get the blue screen.
