iPad not Charging and a Pretty Photo

Charging the iPad Problems

Having trouble charging your iPad? I’ve updated my HyperMac Review a bit with information on how I am using it to keep things charged on the road.  My Macbook Pro just ain’t cuttin’ it!

I also have much greater luck when plugging it directly into the wall with the plug that was included. In just a few hours, the iPad is full. The USB connection to my new MacBook Pro just charges it way too slow!   I think we have all gotten used to how fast the iPhone charges… and the iPad is just a different beast.  I will keep testing the this battery thing and let you know how many charges it can supply… I’ll update the HyperMac review here when I figure it out.  Anyway, there are two options for your charging the iPad problems – hope they help!

Daily Photo – Chihuly in Space

I know you guys don’t get tired of the Chihuly pieces, and neither do I! In fact, I like this one so much that I use it as my desktop wallpaper.

Just as much thought goes into lighting these as it does the creation. I always wonder if he has the “lighting scenario” in mind when forming the piece and its colors. Or maybe, it’s just so awesome and naturally formed that it looks good under any kind of light. Heck, it would probably even look good in a 7-11 at 1 AM when all the pasty-lonely people stumble in for a Big Gulp and a Snickers. I can say this because I am often one of those people.

By the way, you all are free to use my images as desktop wallpaper, for fun, on your blogs, etc. That is the beauty of the Creative Commons license. If you are going to use them for any commercial purposes whatsoever, contact licensing at stuckincustoms.com — the team there will take care of you.

Here is another Chihuly from just down the road… I’m sure some of you have been lucky enough to see this beautiful monstrosity in person!

  • Chihuly’s work is really amazing.

    I like what you did with the flip for the bottom image. A fresh perspective!

  • sharad

    omg. this is so awesome. Trey, you are an outlier, and I simply love u 😀

  • Amazing colors!!!!

  • Terrific work!

  • Amit

    I think I read on ars that ipad requires 10 watts to charge but USB can only provide 2 watts hence need for wall charger…

  • I like the perspective on the second image. Like I could walk through an underwater bed of flowers.

  • These are some wild and amazing colors.

  • I’ve found the same thing even charging with the USB on my Mac Pro desktop. You have to plug it directly into AC unless you are going to leave it connected to the computer overnight.

  • Trey,

    Chihuly’s awesome. You photos look live 🙂 Great work.

    BTW, did you turn the 2nd image upside down captured from bellagio? If so, its a brilliant work I think.


  • casusan

    Oh wow! Both these images are sooo beautiful – could stare at them for hrs!

  • Trey, Had a quick question. How do I know if my image has been selected in HDRspotting.com? Sorry this is off-thread but not sure where to ask!

  • I too have been upside down in the Bellagio and noticed the same Chihuly

  • Alby

    iPad needs the AC adapter to charge properly, unless you have a high power USB…

  • waa…the colors..very inspiring for newbie HDR like me

  • Thanks all!

    Sathya – well – it will show up in the Latest, Featured, or Editor’s Picks after human editors review it.
