If the iPad is not charging on the wall outlet, can you try a different charger and cable to see if either of them might be defective? If that is not an option, can you take it to an Apple genius bar and have them test to see if it is the charger, cable or iPad.

It appeares that when I put in in a USB outlet it gets a signal, so i'll just have to go to mom and dad's to see if an other charger works.
Otherwise it won't be until tomorrow I'm affarid, over here every store is alresady closed for the night.
Thanks for your input.

If you can try with another charger and cable, mix them so you can isolate the problem, you will then be able to visit the Apple store and explain the issue and get a replacement part...be sure to take the iPad, charger and cable with you as they will want to check for themsleves.

The quickest way (and really the only way) to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer with a high-power USB port (many recent Mac computers) or with an iPhone Power Adapter (5W). When attached to a computer via a standard USB port (most PCs or older Mac computers) iPad will charge very slowly (but iPad indicates not charging). Make sure your computer is on while charging iPad via USB. If iPad is connected to a computer that’s turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPad battery will continue to drain.
Apple recommends that once a month you let the iPad fully discharge & then recharge to 100%.
At this link http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/galaxy-tab-android-tablet,3014-11.html , tests show that the iPad 2 battery (25 watt-hours) will charge to 90% in 3 hours 1 minute. It will charge to 100% in 4 hours 2 minutes. The new iPad has a larger capacity battery (42 watt-hours), so using the 10W charger will obviously take longer. If you are using your iPad while charging, it will take even longer. It's best to turn your new iPad OFF and charge over night.

To all tanks for THE replies, there appelaars to be aan issue with the adapter for the wall socket.
To Tom, like I said, it didnot recharge in the wall socket. I knew it did not work with the USB port on the pc.
