I received my new iPad 3 in Oz some 10 hours ago, and immediately synced it with my old iPad 1 settings from my 2010 27" iMac


After the sync, the top right showed 'not charging'. I'm using the same 3rd party cable as I've used on my old iPad for over 6 months, no hassles.


I unplugged the cable, and re-inserted it. The iPad 3 showed as charging, and it filled for another 2% (to 93%) then the 'Not Charging' message showed again.


This happened several times, and in the end I used the wall charger, with success.


When the new iPad is down a bit, I'll try the wall charger with the 3rd party cable.


Any one else having charging hassles with an iPad 3 on an iMac?





iPad (3rd generation) Wi-Fi + 4G, iOS 5.1
