Why does my new iPad take forever to charge? It has been on the provided apple wall charger all day and still not at 100%. If the iPad is gonna take 24 hours to fully charge then I don't want it. Anyone else having this issue?
I started charging at 75% and in 3 hours has gone to 88%. In the last 1 hour it has only gone from 86% to 88%. This is ridiculous!...what did you start charging it from?
I still havnt seen a definitive answer, but the battery has 70% so it might take 70% longer to charge. But still, its not THAT crazy slow.
This!I learned this today about the new iPad from twitter.
It explains things a lot and I hope people get it.
The new iPad has a 42.5wH (11,666mAh) battery. The iPad 2 had a 25wH (6944mAh) battery.
Charge time = forever.
Same issue, people are claiming its the bigger battery, but unfortunately their math is wrong. 14-16hrs of charging should not be necessary to charge this device. Try turning your iPad off and on and see if you see some strange behavior... I saw mine go from 96-92 in about 5 seconds while it "calibrated." At the current status of things I would have to let my iPad probably charge for 30 hours straight to possibly charge it to 100%. I am having my friend test his readings against mine.My biggest issue is that it does not seem to charge while plugged in AND using it...
Yes wall charger.
I don't think we get longer periods of run time. The extra battery is needed to output triple the display resolution. It might even be worse as far as battery drainage, but that I dont know yet.There's no problem.
The good news is the battery is huge and will return long run times. Therefore... it's perfectly normal to require longer periods to charge.
Just plug it in at the end of the day, let it charge while you sleep and you're set to go for the following day.
