    Should my ipad charge from my laptop?I use my iphone connection cable and it charges it just fine the ipad shows "Not Charging"
    Perhaps I should try to charge from the wall outlet?

    The short answer is yes...with conditions.

    If your pad is plugged into your laptop and you turn the pad OFF then it will very slowly charge the pad. But if the pad is ON it will not charge it. I have tested this and it is true.
