    Try another cable. That will be your answer. If its a bad cable, Genius Bar will exchange it.

    Or your local Best Buy should have iPad mini's on display. Same cord. Maybe try that.

    Maybe your phone is just not into bi-charging...

    You definitely wanna make sure it's the cable and not your phone

    Default iPhone only charges one way

    Some new cables I bought did that at first but after unplugging in and out it started working and have had no issues since
