    Hey wondering if anyone else is noticing if their iPad 3 loses actually charge when plugged via usb into a computer?

    2009 13" mbp, plugged into MagSafe.

    I know the new batterys take longer to charge, but the fact that I'm losing power (about 3% over 20 minutes) is concerning.

    Besides this and a slight light bleed, I'm completely stoked with it.

    Computer USB can't provide enough power to charge and use the device at the same time. You need to use the iPad power adaptor to use the device while charging.

    Mine isn't losing charge on my MBP. Turn your screen brightness down and it will charge as you use it.
