When I plug my iPad into my computer's USB ports, the iPad battery area displays "Not Charging".
I understand the iPad requires more wattage to charge compared to an iPhone or iPod, as evidenced by the iPad's larger power adapter (10W) vs the iPhone's (5W).
Is there anything I can do to enable iPad charging from my computer's USB ports? The computer in question is a desktop PC, and it has a 950W power supply. I presume the motherboard's own USB ports are the issue, as opposed to overall power available :-)
So I'd like to know:
Are there external USB hubs that can supply enough power to charge the iPad?
Is there any other solution to enable a computer's USB ports to charge an iPad?
e.g. doubling up a USB port, as I've seen done with some external hard drive enclosures?
