    Hi Apple comunity.

    This is a FYI of my personal problem.

    I have an Ipad, a morning decided to charge it with a "OEM" china 6 ft cable and wont reach the charge after 8%, I went crazy.... start to troubleshoot and found out that thre china 6ft cable, maybe don't have the same pins, same cable specifications causing a weak current, I tried with a original cable short version and wala! is getting warm and charging as normal.

    Take care...

    App Q&A testing by request.

    Generally, powered USB only works at less than 2 meters. So a top of the line 6 foot cable is hitting the edge, and cheap china ones, not so much :D
    Good to know from testing.

    the iPad needs a 10 watt charger. it does not charge via USB when it is in use.
