iPad Not Charging From PC and Laptop

ipad charger om usb laptop

Here’s are just some of the complaints I heard from my friends who are iPad fanatics.

“My iPad won’t charge using my laptop’s USB”.

“iPad is showing “Not Charging” when using the USB cord”.

Sounds familiar?

Do you have problem in charging your iPad using your laptop, PC or any USB ports?

Well, I do!

I left my iPad’s wall charger in our house and when the battery of my iPad goes down to 10%, I quickly asked my office mates if they brought their wall charger or else I won’t be able to finish my DragonVale game :) . I was disappointed when they all shouted “NO”.

Luckily for me, one of our reliable network admin staff brought the USB cord (only), without the wall charger itself. I told myself that I’m still  lucky (or so I thought) because I can just plug-in the USB cord in any USB ports of my laptop and it will work. Boom!!! The reality hit me hard. None of the USB ports of my laptop works! Not even the USB ports of any other PCs in our office.

Panic sets in. How can I finish my DragonVale Game without my Ipad’s power? I saw one of our boss using a USB wall charger. Unfortunately, I can’t just simply borrow it because he’s using it to power his MP3 players (and he’s currently enjoying “his” music).

I’m in total despair! I browsed the internet if there’s any solution to the USB power problem of iPad. What I’ve found were mostly complaints and more complaints!

However, my search for the solution ended successfully. I’ve found a very intelligent and should I say smart way to charge  not only your iPad but including iPhone/iPod too! It can even charge your Apple devices up to 50% faster! Read more…

How to Mass Delete Facebook Wall Posts on Timeline

A lot of you are probably wondering how to mass delete your facebook wall posts. Given that you have enabled your timeline, there are certain posts that you wish to hide from your friends and public viewers.

All In One Headset for All Devices

Is there actually an all-in-one headset for different devices? Well, the answer is none.

Perhaps in the near future when all gadget manufacturers will be united and agree in one design of the headset.

Well, my problem was like this. I love listening to music ( I think everybody does). I listen to my collection of songs in my laptop every time I work. I was using a headset that came in the box with my laptop which we bought from Hong Kong. I’m also using this headset for my skype chat and when watching movies too.

However, I’m switching to another headset every time I want music to accompany me in my jogging routines. I’m using my smartphone that doubles as an MP3 player.

Headset Buddy Adapter

My laptop and the smartphone I’m using have different plugs for the headset and so I used to have two headsets. This was where my dilemma comes in. Sometimes, no, not sometimes but often I forgot which is which. I’m using the same brand of headsets but the plugs are different even if they look identical. One has smaller plug which according to the box that comes with it has 2.5mm in diameter while the other one is 3.5mm.

My dilemma comes to an end when I’ve found the Headset Buddy adapter. I was not fully aware that such devices exist. It’s just actually a very simple device that Read more…
