    If I plug in my iPad after using it for a few hours, it wouldn't charge and my computer would not recognise it. It would only charge after I perform a soft reset (hold Home + Power), with it still plugged in.

    Even then, often a message saying 'Accessory Not Supported' would pop up, and the green charging icon on the iPad's status bar would turn white. However, it is still charging and sync-able with iTunes. This is my second Lightning cable (brand new from Apple), so I'm not sure if it's a cable problem.

    If I plug it in after shorter periods of usage (say a few minutes), it will charge no problem.

    Anyone has any similar experiences?

    Are you using the included power adapter or trying to charge from your computer?

    I've tried both methods.. Same results (sans the syncing and 'Accessory Not Supported' part with the charger).
