iPad Not Charging? Maybe it is.

When you connect your iPad to your Mac, you may have noticed that it displays "Not Charging" next to the battery icon.

The iPad is not able to charge from the low-powered USB ports found on some older Macs (and PCs) and some USB hubs. However, in many cases, the iPad will actually charge, but only when the iPad screen is off.

So, if you’re getting the “Not Charging” message, try leaving your iPad plugged-in and see if the battery has recharged a little after an hour or so.

I wonder if this is unhealthy for the iPad in some way since it is designed to be powered by the higher amperage ports/chargers/etc.?
