    After the battery was fully charged, i have played 30 minutes of temple run and 10 minutes of browsing and my battery still was at 100 percent. Than It changes to 99%, and the next changes from 99 to 98 and etc goes absolutely normaly, every 6-7 minutes.
    The battery was calibrated 2 weeks before.
    Is this normal or a bug?

    Nope - the battery indicator never indicates a flat percentage - it's always been slightly skewed.

    What you are seeing is likely due to the trickle charge mechanism in iOS. When it says 100% it can really be anything from like 95-100% so a truly fully charged iPad can sit in 100% for a while.

    My also have problems. When I unplug the cable, I get 99% directly why is it so? It get 100% if I restart it but that I do not have to do every time.
