Well, i bought this product and did not read reviews about charging problems.
So it is really good product and i extremely like it, but with a stock charger it does not charge my iPad 3gen if the device is turned on. So i was really disapointed because it is such a great product, so i decided to try my Apple charger which came with my iPad, and it charges. ( it charges very slowly, if iPad is turned on then 1-2 % for an hour but if it turned off then much quicker, maby like 8% for an hour)
But i like this product so much so i am keeping it even if it charges not very fest.
if it did not have charging problems i would easely put 5 stars but because of that i am puting 4 stars.
There are times when it simply does not charge my 3rd Gen iPad, regardless of whether I have it plugged into my Mac, my powered USB hub or the wall with the included (and very nice) AC adapter.
Also if you need a stand that charges your iPad with a case installed, this is not the stand for you.
If you have an iPad that needs a spiffy looking well made stand, and you have 149 bucks burning a hole in your pocket, then this is the one for you.
