Won't Work With Battery / Can't Find Voltage Info For Charging
I wanted to buy a HyperMac battery for my iPhone and (iPad) and wondered how big the iPad's battery is. At the Tech Spec of the iPad says 25Wh, but since the specs of the HyperMac batterys are in mAH wonder how much those 25Wh are in mAH. And how much a 1800mAH battery would charge the iPad.

When My Power Get's To 90% On A Recharge - Power Charging Icon Flash And A Constant Beeping Sound For A Few Minutes
I just got the latest upgrade that I installed yesterday from Apple.When my power get's to 90% on a recharge. I am seeing the Power charging icon flash and a constant beeping sound for a few minutes. It's like the power charging is being unplugged then plugged in again. Even if i turn off the device, and plug it in, I get the same results. It lasts for about 5 minutes and then it quiets down again and it appears to be charging normally.

It's an apple charger and and apple cable. I plugged in the same power configuration and I do not have an issue with my ITouch so I do not believe it's power related. I believe it was the last Upgrade because I never experienced this issue with the device and power charging configuration prior.I am on Version 5.1.1 (9B206) and it's a Model: MC705LL

Charging The Battery - Message - Charging Not Supported With This Accessory
I am having problems getting the new IPad to charge at all and sometime it displays this message.' charging not supported with this accessory'. This message is appearing occasionally on my 5 week old new iPad (3) within a few minutes of plugging it in.: (It is also not charging after this message appears. I am using the supplied wall socket and cable. I am also having problems getting the iPad to charge at all even if the message does not show. This is frustrating me no end. I expected a reliable device given the amount I paid.

I rang Apple support today (twice) and it made a liar of me working just fine for few minutes the first time then again failed, then for hour or so after the second call seemed to work just fine. Now it is not charging, and won't charge despite repeatedly unplugging and repluging, Switching off the iPad and turning it back on etc etc.

Charging The Battery/when Shoul Be Charge A New Battery?
I have just bought my brand new iPad and as I was leaving the PC World store the tech guy told me that I should charge the unit for TEN HOURS before even turning it on.

I know this used to be common practice with batteries in years gone by but in this age of non-memory Lithium Ion batteries is it really necessary to do that?Did you all charge yours up for that period of time before getting stuck into it?

3G Power On Charging
First....Last night i had the iPad plugged into the wall charger as I was using it since it was at about 15% charge and i would randomly use it, put it down, use it, etc...and i'd say it was plugged in for about 2.5 hours and then at about an hour after that it randomly wouldnt turn on.

I had held and pressed the power button but nothing i eventually got into DFU mode and it would restart after that but does that indicate any form of defect with the iPad itself?
Should i restore it to default and resync my apps/music/ etc?

Second....I noticed when powering on i have to hold the power button for a quite a bit longer than I previously thought I did as i usually have never turned it off for the most part only seldom.

What length of time does anyone usually hold their power button on theirs for to get them to boot up?

Battery Status Was Low At 5% When Surfing The Net - No Battery Charging Sign, No "plip" When Connect Via Charger Or USB On Computer
I have a problem with my iPad 1:The battery status was low at 5% when I was surfing the net so I shut it down. Came to it the next day to charge it up and the Pad is not reacting at all. No battery charging sign, no "plip" when I connect it via the charger or USB on the computer. I have checked all the obvious stuff such as cleanliness of all the connectors, function of the the wall charger etc. I changed the USB/power cable and nothing has worked. I have also tried to reset it by simultaneously pressing the start and home buttons. The pad still isn't switching on. Before this fault the battery was excellent: held its charge really well.

Not Charging With 10W USB Power Adapter
I tried to charge my battery yesterday with my 10W USB Power Adapter, but it seems that iPad isn't recognizing it as a power adatper. When I plug it, iPad shows me the message Not Charging, the same message that appears when I plug iPad to a USB port. I then connected it to a USB port and my computer doesn't recognize it anymore. I turned iPad off and plugged it to the power outlet again. The iPad turned on automatically and the message Not Charging appeared. I disconnected the iPad from the outlet and connected again. Nothing happened. As I needed to charge my iPad and it seems to be recognizing my 10W USB Adapter as a normal USB port, I just turned it off again, plugged it to the outlet and when the Not Charging message appeared, I put the iPad to sleep and let it charged this way. A left it over night and it charged from 20% to 89%. The big problem is that now I can't connect my iPad to my computer, which is a huge problem. What should I do? Any Clues?

Not Charging From Power Block
Yesterday I took delivery of four 64GB iPads for work. Two are WiFi only and two are 3G models. Here's the strange thing. One of each type will only charge from the included power block and cable. The other two will charge on my MacBook Pro, from the included power block and from my new ZaggSpark backup battery unit. The two that won't charge except from the power block have gone to PC users but I don't see how that could be an issue unless the USB ports on their IBM desktops aren't providing a sufficient charge. That doesn't explain though why neither of the two units won't even charge from my Mac. Strange voodoo or busted out of the box?

Charging Via 10W USB Power Adapter From Inverter?
I kept the new iPad for charging overnight using original Apple 10W USB Power Adapter. Next morning i found adapter was not working and it was leaking a liquid which was smeling like burnt oil - there was no damage to iPad. I guess adapter got damaged due to power fluctuations as the power outlet was sourced from Inverter. I never thought charging this way may cause any damager to adapter, othewise for long I have been charging my other laptops and smartphones in the same way. Just thought to post this incident to this community for knowledge sharing and understand what may have happened.

Erratic Power Behavior When Wall Charging
Whenever I charge my iPad using the charging block and AC current, I like to turn the power off altogether, rather than just put the iPad into sleep mode.As soon as I plug it into the wall, the iPad power comes back on. When I go to shut it off again, sometimes it stays off, but sometimes it powers off and then back on after a few seconds.Is this normal behavior when wall charging?

Different Power Outlets Affect - Charging Speed?
Does anyone know if the outlet my 10w ipad charger is plugged into might affect the speed at which I charge my new iPad?

I don't know if I'm imagining things but I recently noticed that my new iPad seems to charge much more quickly from the outlet next to my couch vs outlet next to my dad. Is this possible? Same charger, same cord, nothing else substantial plugged into the other receptacle on the outlet (just a small lamp).

Does anyone know if plugging your charger into one outlet versus another or a power strip would affect the speed at which your iPad chargers?

I had assumed that the amount of electricity coming out of any outlet or power strip well exceeded what your iPad needed so there wouldn't be a problem - but now I'm wondering if there's some strange walt vs amps electricity thing going on that I've never understood.

Battery Seems To Lose Power Quickly
Must be my imagination but my battery seems to be dying quicker than usual. I have been Atomic Browser a lot lately and I heard that may be an issue. I has my iPad plugged into the charger all night. Woke up and unplugged had 100%. Now after about aprox 10 minutes of use it has dropped down to 97%. When i first got it it would take at least an hour before it would drop down to 99%. I'm probably worrying about nothing. If I'm being stupid just say so.

Way To Charge Battery - Connect To Power Outlet ?
"Charge the battery: The best way to charge the iPad battery is to connect iPad to a power outlet using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable and 10W USB power adapter. When you connect iPad to a USB 2.0 port on a Mac with the Dock Connector to USB Cable, iPad may charge slowly while syncing.
Important: The iPad battery may drain instead of charge if iPad is connected to a PC, to a computer that's turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, to a USB hub, or to the USB port on a keyboard.3g 8GB
