    iPad 2 not charging via usb hub
    Not sure if anyone's mentioned this before or not, but noticed a minor hiccup with the iPad 2's charging.

    I plugged my iPad 2 directly into a USB port on my MBP, and it charged up no problem. My husband plugged his into a USB hub that he has plugged into a port on his iMac and his iPad 2 displayed "Not Charging". I googled the problem, and noticed a LOT of people had the same thing. So he plugged the USB charging cord directly into a USB port on his iMac (not using the hub) and then it DID show that it was charging.

    So if anyone else sees their iPad 2 not charging, don't panic, try plugging it directly into the computer's USB port and not using a hub. (Or just plugging it into a wall outlet, which is how I will normally charge mine, and how I usually charge my iPod.)

    This was a "problem" since the iPad 1. The iPad takes 10W to charge up properly. It will charge up with any new Mac - but sometimes slower than the 10W charger it comes with. Anything else will still charge it but it has to be off and it takes a long time. Unfortunately I sync to an old PC - so the iPad has to be fully charged before I start syncing. It won't charge while syncing but when it is done it will charge it up as everything is off.
