    I've had my iPad for a few months now and suddenly it's developed charging problems.

    It keep it plugged in most of the time, but lately it has just stopped charging (the symbol shows battery instead of plugged) and the battery level goes down. Have tried restarting, shutting apps, different chargers, cables, etc. No luck.

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    Make sure to check your cable closely, sometimes they separate from the connector at the end

    If your cables are fine, I would take it in to the Apple Store and have them evaluate it

    Cables are fine. Only use original Apple cables and they work fine when charging other devices like my iPhone.

    This is odd. Sometimes it's charging and stops. After some fiddling it might begin charging again. I'm thinking it might be some sort of loose connection.

    I had the same problem. It turned out my Apple cable was plugged into a power strip and the connection at the power strip was the problem. Try unplugging all connections from the iPad to the wall and reconnecting.
