    Hi,

    When I plug my iPad to the plug it charges, but when I try to charge via USB on my PC it says "Not in charge".
    Weird thing is that my iPhone charges the same PC.

    What can I do?

    iPads require more power than an iPhone to charge at the same speed. While your iPad says "Not charging" it it. Just rather slowly.

    You need a USB port with enough power to charge an iPad. Nine of my laptops will charge my iPad's. When I use a USB port from my desktop USB 3.0 port that has enough power or my Mac Mini it will charge with no problems.

    Macs have an auto sensing USB port that detects the draw and ups the amps to allow iPads to charge. By design this is not a standard feature on pc's

    Well I'm not sure even it chagers if it appears not.

    I have like 8 USB port (2 of them USB3) and in every spin it still the same..

    So weird..

    USB Implementors Forum spec is 500mA per port. That's not enough for an iPad to charge from.

    Your iPad ships with a 2000mA charger. Use it.

    It's not weird at all. They don't provide enough current. Simple really.

    It's a weird thing. I don't mean it's hard to understand or so. It's just weird that a high end PC (Alienware) with even USB3 can't charge a ****in' iPad.

    IPad's attempt to charge its enormous battery in a reasonable time violates USB specification.

    Its not Alienware's fault. They likely follow usb spec.

    Apple supplied a charger to deal with this detail.
