iPads are most widely used tablets in the world. Their charging problems are, however, a bone of contention with these devices. Many customers do complain of that their iPads do not charge correctly and even when charged, the power is too easily drained. Most users do not realize that the charging problem is one that they can take care of by themselves. The ‘iPad not charging problem could develop for more than one reason. Finding out the reason that your personal device is not charging should help you fix it. Before you contact Apple’s help service, here are a few things that you can try:
Restart your Phone
When it appears that your phone is not charging, your first move should be to force a restart from the device. Rebooting your device ensures some bad bits are discarded. To do this, you should press and hold down the power button that is either on the side or on top of your device. While pressing the power button, press the Home button and the screen should start going off and getting darker. Hold both buttons down until the device, iPad or iPhone shuts down and restarts. You should release the buttons when the phone restarts and the Apple logo appears on your screen.
Ensure That You Use Apple Certified Accessories
Make sure that you use a Lightning Connector that is Apple Certified. Some accessories will be MFi ( Made for iDevice) certified which should be a green light, but they do not always pair with Apple devices. Also, ensure that your cable has not been damaged. If it is damaged even though it may not appear so, it will not work. You can switch cables or ports to solve the issue. Sometimes it may just be the port, or the cable won’t work with your iDevice.

Restore your Device in iTunes.
iTune restoration is one of the harder fixes that one can try.
