    It's connected to my laptop, albeit this is my first iPad, I only have 3 usb plugs in, my mouse, my iPhone 5, and my iPad Mini. What is going on?

    Does it charge when you plug it into an outlet?

    Not enough power from most USB ports to charge while it is in use. If not in use and asleep it actually will power charge.

    Not true. My PC charges it just fine. My motherboard has a driver that provides more juice to the USB ports.

    Your ipad is completely normal. The USB ports do not provide enough power. As someone above mention you may get it to charge if the ipad is not being used and asleep. But it will still be a very slow charge. iPhones and iPads require different amounts of power to charge.

    Only an USB 3.0 port or a special tweaked USB 2.0 like those used by Gigabyte will provide enough juice to charge an iPad. The other USB port will not, hence the message.

    Install Asus Ui Charger and it will charge! And no you don't need a Asus laptop or Asus motherboard to use it!

    Give it a try
