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.
Anyone had any issues with the iPad battery losing charge quickly? For instance, my iPad lost 12% of its charge (from 100% down to 88%) over a period of 10 hours with the device turned off. I made certain that all wifi and 3G network connections were switched off when I turned the iPad off.
I read a thread here suggesting that GoodReader may be a culprit (for some reason) and have since removed that app. Still waiting for a decent time to elapse before checking battery capacity again to see if that has made any difference.
Did not have this problem when the iPad was 'new', ie a couple of weeks old.

I have an ipad1 the battery works great until it reaches with 10 percent battery left. And it comes up with a warning with 10 percent battery left and should charge. The problem is it drops quickly and it doesn't charge. I usually have to reconnect it to my CPU and when the screen comes back up plug it into the wall charger and then it is a slow process back to 100 percent. I have tried changing the cable wall charger plug.
I was wondering why my iPad has been causing problem?.¬† I do not to insurance for the item though I still have to pay for the product through the financing company.¬† Surely, with or without insurance, this is a hardware problem.¬† I have had the item for a little under two years and do not believe this is the end of a cycle for an Apple product.¬†
My iPad battery is draining more quickly than normal when being woken from sleep by opening a case that works with the cover lock/unlock feature, It does not require me to slide to unlock. This happens whether I lock it by clicking the sleep button at the top of the iPad and then close the cover (there is the audio "click" that indicates it has slept). It does not happen if I wake it by using the buttons of the iPad. I'm unable to restore the iPad.
I'm on the 3G model and I've noticed that the battery drains three percent down to 97%, WHILE ITS CHARGING! Anyone have a similar experience or an idea why the device is consuming more power than the charger is supplying?
Some tip to share here, if you encounter your iPad / iPhone 4 battery power dropped faster than usual after upgrade to 4.2.1, than you need to restore your 4.2.1 again, I encounter the issue when I upgrade my iPhone 4 to 4.2.1, the battery power dropped much more faster than usual (24hrs dropped 40%) I brought to carrier, they back up my data and restore again and the issue solved.
"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
I wanted to make sure I didn't mess something up during the back up process. I just backed up my ipad2 using iCloud, but forgot to use the power, so it backed up on battery power. The back up seems to have been successful, but did I damage anything not having it connected to the AC power source?
I noticed lately the power consumption on my ipad 3 has gone considerably up. A full charge lasts me about 8 hrs and to chrge it upm(through the mains), it takes 4hrs +.† I downloaded many apps lately and suspect one of them may be power hungry.Is there† a good App that allows me to establish which app(s) eat up the power on my Ipad 3 & equally allow me to terminate unnecessary processes?†
I've noticed a sudden drop of battery efficiency. I don't know why but once the battery reaches 100% and the charger is unplugged its level drops from 99% to 90% in a very short time, even without using the Ipad and leaving it in the standbye mode! If used, it goes down even faster (which normally would be natural but a month or two ago it wasn't like that).
I'm just wondering if this is normal: the battery charge on my iPad Air decreases even when it is plugged in to the power, most of the time I am only using Safari or Mail. This happens when it is connected to the Apple 12W power supply or to the USB port on my MacBook Pro.
Strange thing the new ipad. It takes a while to fully load and the funniest thing happens while playing a game ( like infinity blade )the battery wont charge it keeps on draining. This is hopefully a bug that apple fixes in a short time.
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†

I have an older iBook with the power cord that connects to the power adapter after you remove a square connector. It looks like the power adapter that comes with the iPad has the same configuration. Does anyone know if I can take the same approach as I am doing with my iBook to extend the length of the power cable?
I know little about display technologies, but is it possible for some future version ot the iPad have a low-power display mode like that of the Kindle reader. If so, I might be willing to fork over the difference in price between the Kindle with 9+" display and the iPad.
Still waiting, like many, for my 3G iPad, but I just downloaded Opera for my first gen. iPod Touch. WOW! That is one speedy browser. I couldn't believe how quickly pages were loading and instantaneous flipping back and forth between open pages. I was wondering if anyone has tried this on the iPad and if the experience is notably improved or any other observations.
Is there any way to "toggle off" background Apps? I have no need to keep newspapers, books, games, etc running in the back only to have to "Double tap the home button, hold the icon till it wiggles, tap the negative sign, close the bottom panel" - useless wate of time.If no, any shorter way to close an app other than the method described above? How about just flick up on the Home screen to get to the running apps bar (what do you call that bar anyway?) instead of having to click the home button twice? (You wouldn't believe how much noise that stupid button makes when it clicks when your partner is sleeping and you are reading in bed!) At the very least can't Apple just make the background Apps already have the little negative sign on them when they come up (like the close program "x" PC programs now have)? It would at least save the "hold till it wiggles step".Don't even get me started on the Mute button that only mutes system sounds (which I have turned off anyway) yet makes be do a whole bunch of steps to be able to screen lock! Can you say "user selectable function"?
I forgot to update my credit card info with AT&T, which expired in june. My unlimited plan was from 6/30 to 7/30. AT&T tried to renew my plan today, but failed. Please tell me that I didn't lose my unlimited. I got my iPad when it came out. Does that make any difference? I quickly updated my card info. Will AT&T try again?
I have the 3G iPad with the grandfathered unlimited data plan. Does the unlimited plan apply only to my current iPad, or will it transfer over to a new iPad. I'm thinking that the plan is specific to the device rather than the customer.
While on a trip, I bought an iPad last week and used a MacBook Air to sync.I also bought a few books via iBooks' store.The MacBook Air has iTunes with my normal account.
At home I have a Mac Pro which has all my music, movies, etc.When I connected the iPad to my Mac Pro, there was a warning that if I would sync it would erase everything on my iPad and replace it with the Mac Pro iTunes stuff.
Is there any way of syncing to my Mac Pro without losing the books?
