Can I use iphone 4s USB cable to recharge for the new ipad

The iPod, iPad & iPhone cables are identical, however, the chargers are not.
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%.
How to Calibrate Your Mac, iPhone, or iPad Battery
http://www.macblend.com/how-to-calibrate-your-mac-iphone-or-ipad-battery/
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.

  • Can i use an extented usb cable to recharge my ipad ?

    Hello !
    I just bought iPads for my business. I want to use it with stands and i'm looking for a way to recharge it. I bought a 5m extended usb cable, plugged it and the ipad made a sound like if it was recharging but then, it says, "not charging" !
    How can i charge it ? Any ideas ? It seems that this 5m cable is useless...
    Thank you !

    Ok, i see...
    But the thing is that i'm going to use it on a stand. The Apple charger doesn't go inside the tube of the stand so i need an usb extension...
    I tried with my phone (Nexus 4), it worked !
    Here is a plan as yours of what i need :
    iPad-----Lightning/USB inside the tube------------Extended USB cable----------Apple charger-------(eventually a classic electrical cord extension if i need it longer)---------Wall.

  • Can I use a midi/usb cable to connect to garage band?

    Can I use a midi/usb cable to connect to garage band? Or do I need to buy an interface such as M-Audio. I have the M-TRACK, but haven't connected it yet.

    Do I need two cables back and forth between the M-TRACK or just one OUT from the piano and IN from the M-TRACK?
    i must confess i haven't checked GBv10, but all previous versions (and i'm guessing GBv10 as well) have only supported MIDI-IN, so all you need is to run the keyboard's OUT to the interface's IN

  • Can I use my 10W iPad 2 charger for the new iPad air?

    I need several chargers - work, home, travel. Therefore, can I use the 10W chargers from previous iPad models for the new iPad Air? I don't want to purchase 2/3 additional chargers when I purchase my new iPad. Also, can I use the 12W iPad air charger for my iPhone? I don't want to fry it so want to confirm beforehand.

    The new model will have the 12W charger, so you should be able to use it with the new model - from http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4327 :
    iPad models come with one of two different adapters. iPad (third generation) and earlier comes with a 10W adapter while iPad (4th generation) comes with a 12W adapter. iPad mini comes with a 5W adapter.
    While these USB Power Adapters are designed for use with iPad or iPad mini, you can use them to charge all iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, and iPod models by connecting them with either the Lightning to USB cable or the 30-pin to USB cable.

  • Can I use my 2TB WD My Book Essential for the Time Machine feature on the MacBook as well as two other Windows computers (one running 7 and one with Vista)?

    Can I use my 2TB WD My Book Essential for the Time Machine feature on the MacBook as well as to store information from two other Windows computers (one running 7 and one with Vista)?

    Yes you can but you need to partition the drive into at least 2 separate drives.
    To do that you need to use a Windows PC to do the first partitioning. Say you split the drive into two partitions each 1TB (or close to 1TB) each.
    Partition fand format both partitions on a Win PC as one NTFS and the other FAT32.
    Then move it to the Mac and Reformat the FAT32 partition Mac Extended (Journaled) with a GUID Partition Table.
    I have that same drive and that is what I did originally with it. I now have it just for the Mac as I have other externals for the Win systems.
    Good Luck.

  • Can I return my iPad2 for the new iPad

    My parents bought me the new ipad2 in January and they also pay for the one year guarantee. The iPad 2 is brand new in good condition. Now, can I return my ipad2 for the new iPad without paying?

    No, unless the store you bought it from has a very generous return policy - the Apple Store official policy is 14 days. The one year warranty is on defects in the product, not for upgrading. You can sell your iPad and use the funds to buy a new one, but you will likely sell for less than you paid.

  • HT3302 Where can I get a screen replaced for the new ipad?

    Do apple repair screens for the new ipad?

    Apple does not repair iPads, but if the screen has been damaged due to accident will replace the entire iPad for a flat fee. If you have AppleCare+ on the iPad, the cost will be relatively minimal; $49 in the US. Otherwise, see the Repair Pricing section here:
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipad/service/faq/
    There are independent iPad repair services that may be able to replace the screen for less. Do a web search for "ipad repair".  You can also look for parts and instructions and do the repair yourself. Note, though, that if you elect to have the iPad serviced by an unauthorized shop or perform your own repair, you will get no further support from Apple.
    This is the iPod touch forum, by the way.
    Regards.

  • Can I trade in a Brand New iPad 2 for the New iPad?

    I have had the iPad 2 since late July 2011 in Australia. Since then it has had some problems, one major one recently was the screen near the Home Button starting to peel off.
    I took it in to the apple shop and the next day i picked but a brand new iPad 2, and have restored all my old stuff on it.. and now i am wondering if i can swap this for the new iPad?
    Thanks

    Apple don't do trade-ins - all they do is allow returns if you bought it from them within the past 14 days. If you want the new model then will probably get more for your current one by selling it privately and then buying the new one, and not looking for a store that does trade-ins.

  • Can you get wireless hard drives for the new ipad as apple again havent increased the size

    someone has mentioned that you can get wireless hard dives for the ipad.....this would be beneficial as yet again apple have not increased the size of the maximum hard drive of their new "soon to be released" ipad.....thanks Lee

    The wireless "drives", which are more truly media streamers rather than true file storage, continue to be an optiono for the new iPad just as it was for the previous versions. Confirm compatibility with iOS 5.1 before purchasing, just in case the product might need an update for the new version of iOS.
    Regards.

  • Can I use my iphone as a hotspot for the new ipad thru Verizon?

    Verizon does offer Personal Hotspot (aka "tethering") for the iPhone. You will have pay extra for the service. Contact Verizon to get pricing.
