How do I get my iPad mini to charge on my computer?

    How do I get my iPad mini to charge on my computer?

    I have the newest iTunes on my new computer but not on my laptop, nor do I want it on my laptop. I want to be able to charge my iPad on my laptop since I'll be traveling over seas soon and m laptop has a built in voltage converter. My iPad won't connect with my laptop since I don't have the newest iTunes. Is there a way to remedy this?

    I'm not completely positive, shouldn't the Apple iPad charge up when connected a USB port anyway? iTunes is used only to sync/transfer the data on the computer and iPad and buy/manage content/apps.

    When your laptop is on plug in the iPad via USB and see if the battery icon/meter on the iPad/iOS changes.

    The Laptop should be running normally (plugged in to outlet for optimal performance)  in order to "feed" power to the iPad. However  the Laptop computer can not go into standby/sleep mode since this stops the charging process. 

    Hope this helps some how

    It shouldn't require anything extra, as long as the laptop is plugged in to a power source and you've got your ipad plugged into it,that's the normal way to take care of it without itunes. The computer must remain on while charging the battery.

    Can't you just plug it into the wall with the charger? It will charge much faster that way.  Other than that it does not need iTunes to charge.  Just plug it into a USB port but it may be that if the laptop is operating on its battery, it might not have enough surplus power to charge your mini.  That you you are asking the battery to run the laptop and charge the iPad - that is a huge request power-wise.

    My iPod does not recharge when plugged into the computer, just when I plug it into the wall.
