It’s the new iPad (iPad 3rd Gen) and is 2 years old and was in perfect shape even before a month. One day I noticed that the battery was at 20% and I didn’t charge even then. Now after 3-4 more days I find it as switched off. Plugged in the wall charger and it booted up. But the battery percentage was at 92% and the charge full indicator was on (that plug symbol inside the battery icon). Upon detaching the wall charger, the iPad just shuts off and then the red battery indicator comes up while powered off. It starts to reboot and shuts off a minute or two after reaching the homescreen. The battery doesn’t take charge (tried for a whole night) and it just shuts off completely when the wall charger is detached (Nothing happens whatever button combination I try). Note: Running iOS 6.0.1, Don’t want to upgrade iOS at all. Any suggestions apart from taking it to those moneysuckers? PS: It was running for 7-8 hours on a single charge just before this. Can the battery health deteriorate so quick? + Attached the red battery screen on plugging in. + It shuts off momentarily if the brightness slider is moved up.
