Here we have got you covered. Check this wonderful solution which will fix it and will give a option to charge ever faster, all from your computer, no other hardware needed.
It happened to me also. My iPad 2 charge fine from MacBook Pro and wall charger, but when I plugged iPad USB to a Windows Computer it starts showing “Not Charging”. I am familiar with this issue. Today I thought I will share the solution.
Cause of this issue:
According to Apple support forum “Most computers don’t provide enough power via their USB ports to be able to charge the iPad (first or second version)”. But when the iPad remain in sleep or screen off mode it does charge slowly, but shows “Not Charging”. So its basically because most Computer or Laptop USB does not provide enough power to charge iPad as it needs higher power, over 2A. But for Apple’s own device like MacBook Pro or iMac, they have made their device to power up that much electricity.
