Result:my battery of ipad 1 not charging and dead

Received ipad for Christmas, it was fully charged by my mother with the provided adapter. Charged twice after that with no problem. Having been trying to charge since Sunday night (this is Tuesday), and all I have is a picture of a battery in the center of the screen with a lightening bolt under it and the end of the battery is red and never changes. Have not tried to charge with USB to computer, as we do not have a Mac. Any suggestions? Closest Apple store is over 50 miles away, and ipad was purchased at local Verizon Store.

Anybody know if it matters or harms in anyway the ipad battery leaving it on charge? Maybe if your going to sleep or out for awhile and it only needs a short charge time, but it is hooked up much longer than it actually needs to be. iMac Intel, 2.4 GHz , 4G Ram / ipad 3G Mac OS X (10.6.3) Tech Artist:|battery-charging-ipad

I have my ipad and the battery icon with RED shows up with both plugging it into the wall and the computer. The computer will not recognize the ipad in iTunes, nor will the battery recharge. Ive only had this thing since Sept, and it never had this problem until recently and I am using iOS 4.2. Does anyone have a clue? Is this a battery that I have to replace? A new motherboard? Or is it something really stupid to fix? Please help.Thanks. ipad iOS 4...|ipad-battery-charging-problem

Im not sure if this is normal, but my ipad when plugged in using the supplied charger will only charge to 97%? Also my battery is draining really quickly, my ipad was charge up over night, its not been used all day but already down to 65%, is that right?I wonder if I have faulty ipad and need to take it back? iMac Core 2 Duo 24" Mac OS X (10.6) Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo 13.3"...|standby-time-battery-charging-ipad

This I could shift to a USB vs. straight power discussion but I only am curious about charge time in general.As I see it the ipad can be charged in three different states: -Turned on while working -Sleep Mode -Powered DownI am just curious how the overall charge time is altered by these different states. (i.e. does it charge faster if I power it down or just leave it asleep, etc.)Thanks!All the best,Richard 27" iMac 15" MacBook Pro ipad iPod Classic Apple TV Mac OS X (10.6.3)...|ipad-battery-charging-time-states

I have read all the apple pages on this (why they have to be in 3 documents is beyond me) and still can not determine WHEN it is best to charge? I have let my power run to 0 before recharging. This is how my camera batteries work best.

I plugged it in to charge (but I recall it has at least 70%) power when I turned it off) and got nothing. I just plugged it into my computer with iTunes running and it wont show up.Its dead.
