Hi,
I exchanged my faulty iPad(dead pixel) with a new one at an Apple Store today(It came out of a replacement box). I went home to restore everything from back up so I kept my data back from my old iPad.

So once I restored everything, I went to charge my iPad from my iPhone USB adapter. Am wondering if it makes a difference if I use the iPhone one rather than my iPad one? Or is it just the replacement iPad?

iPhone USB adapter is slower charging because it's 5v 1a

Use the one that came with your iPad -- it's 10W. It'll charge MUCH faster.

It needs calibrating, let it got totally flat until it switches off. The charge it up fully.
