I know the iPad battery questions have been beaten to death, but did Apple purposely design the iPad's to not boot if they have a bad battery? I have an iPad 1 that plugged into the 10W wallplug, it'll show the Apple logo and boot loop. I can get it to show the recovery mode, but the moment I unplug it, it dies. If I plug into my Macbook, the LCD backlight briefly flashes and turns off. I can get it to DFU mode, but the moment iTunes tries to restore, it goes to "Preparing iPad for restore" and it reboots it to that backlit flash again. Is there no way to get it to boot? I see iFixit has ipad 1 batteries for $49 dollars and I'd install it myself.. is that roughly what Apple would charge me for their service or would it be like 2-3x as much?
