  1. I have had this happen, and it was the USB chord, but not from being the wrong one. My cat had tugged on it and caused the connection to come loose. It wasn’t all the way out and still looked like it was plugged in, but even the slightest disconnect stopped the charge. So along with wrong USB’s check the connection is tight and secure. 😉


  2. I’ve never tried but Apple is very special in his things, everything is more expensive and less compatible with other Apple technology not but appreciate the information and will consider!


  3. Another reason is not using “Certified” cable but mostly it’s underpowered or powered off USB ports


  4. Probably you are using the wrong charger. Get your charger directly from Apple stores. Or may the charger you are using is bad, get a new one from the Apple stores.


  5. I’ve found that I’ve had to mark my chargers. My iPad 1 charger will not charge my iPad 3, nor will my iPhone charger charge anything other than the phone.
