Battery Died And Now It Won't Charge Because It Keeps Turning On / Off

Jul 5, 2012

My 1st generation iPad's battery died so I plugged it in. When I did, the Apple logo came up and it went to the lock screen for probably about 2 seconds and then turned off to the loading spinning wheel thing. It turned all the way off and then went back to the logo screen and did it again. It's been doing this for about two hours now and I don't know what to do. When I plugged it into my Mac, iTunes would only recognize it the short time that it is on the lock screen so I can't reset it or do anything with it at all.

May 14, 2010

Anybody know if it matters or harms in anyway the iPad battery leaving it on charge? Maybe if your going to sleep or out for awhile and it only needs a short charge time, but it is hooked up much longer than it actually needs to be.

2. When I turned the iPad off to see if that reset the battery the unit seems to turn off, then comes back on and then switches off properly.

Anyone else had either of the above happen?

Bluetooth Keyboard Keeps Turning On And Waking Up (draining Battery)

Jun 12, 2010

I realize this might be an odd issue, but my Apple wireless keyboard keeps turning itself on (and waking the iPad with any button presses, and draining iPad (and I'm sure the keyboards own) battery just with the connection it's maintaining). I keep both in a bag together and am guessing the power switch on the keyboard is being pressed at some point and turning it on. Is there any workaround besides just removing the batteries until needed? Some sort of "lock" switch to prevent it from turning on or a function where you need to hold the power button for a few seconds to turn it on? My guess is that walking around the button is getting touched briefly, and since any key-press will light up the iPad, I'll sometimes lose 10% of the battery life just walking around with it in my bag.

Charging The Battery/when Shoul Be Charge A New Battery?

Nov 3, 2010

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?

IPad 3 :: Stuck In A Loop Charging / Turning On / Restore And Then Running Out Of Battery

Aug 21, 2014

The other day I decided to give my Ipad it's long awaited system update, alls good, it starts installing I go to bed, however during the night it must have run out of charge as it died. Now I am stuck in a loop of it charging, turning on, asking to be restored and then running out of battery again (or so it says). 

I reckon the problem is the brightness is at max and the restore screen does not seem to turn off, so it sits there draining what little battery my ipad has accumulated in a never ending loop. My charger isn't apple branded but it runs at 5.1 volts (I believe that's just over 2 amps?) I think that is enough although I could be wrong? I was hoping you good people would be able to tell me. If it is meant to be enough, is there any way I can turn the ipad off during this loop at any point while still charging it?

How To Charge Battery For Best Battery Life

Oct 22, 2010

I have read all the apple pages on this (why they have to be in 3 documents is beyond me) and still can not determine WHEN it is best to charge? I have let my power run to 0 before recharging. This is how my camera batteries work best. So I am doing FULL charges, not PARTIAL charges.Also, when large battery pic says 100% charged, top right small battery pic says 98% instead of 100, twice now. Information:Ipad 3G & 13.3 MacPro

Better To Charge More Often Or Let Battery Get Really Low?

Sep 9, 2011

I was wondering, since the battery life is based on charge cycles, if it is better to charge your iPad daily or to wait until the battery is pretty drained (>20%) before you plug it in? I told my mom, who has an iPhone, that it's probably better to drain it bc the battery is based on charge cycles, but my brother who is probably more tech savvy than me told her she should charge it at the end of the day regardless of her battery level. I obviously want my iPad to last me as long as possible so I'm wondering if it makes a difference which approach you take to charging, and which is the better option.

Refuse To Charge The Battery?

Jun 1, 2010

My iPad has been working fine for weeks and suddenly today it basically refuses to charge the battery. Even connected to the 10W charger, it takes hours to get even +10% charge. When plugged into the 10W, it doesn't show the charging symbol. When plugged into a PC, it doesn't even say "Not Charging" anymore. Actually now that I'm trying to sync, the PC complains about not being able to recognize the device and I don't see it in iTunes anymore.
