Why does my iPad chirp every so often during recharge? The intervals seem random. No error messages or warnings on the iPad, as it contunues to charge. The display activates showing a large battery icon with charge percentage, then the display shuts off. Not an issue, really, except it's at bedside during overnight charge, and wakes me up!
I can confirm that Italian 3 service works as advertised in various threads in Florence. Excellent coverage even behind the thick 16th century walls!I am back in the UK and need some help and advice - perhaps from someone in Italy. Part of the iPad plan with 3 / Tre is free roaming in the UK. As the Italian data plan is cheaper than the UK one, I would like to continue to recharge my 3 Italy account. I have been on the tre.it website to try and figure out how to add addition Euro to the account. I am using Google to translate the pages which is a mixed bag. I have found a place to set up an account and (I think) to start the process of recharging the SIM. Unfortunately it seems to require a "number". In the Settings -> General -> About it says that the Cellular Data Number is Unknown.
My new iPad won't charge when connected to the laptop, it will only charge with the plug that it came with and with the incar charger, won't charge when in use. Is this right or should it go back to the shop?
Can I recharge the I-Pad battery overnight without running it all the way down (ie: maybe at 30%) without harming the unit? Or should I only recharge when it is totally depleted?Information: I-Pad Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Happily off to south of France this week and apartment has a wi-fi connection. Just wanted to check that iPad will recharge ok with adapter.Pretty sure it should but wanted to check and see if it takes longer and how long?
My battery has been draining about 5% an hour while asleep with no apps running. I read online that restarting the ipad should fix it, and I did that, but it was still there.I decided to drain the battery completely and then recharge it to 100%. I did that, and now the battery is stuck at 100%. Ive been using it for 3 hours and its still at 100%. What can I do to fix this?
According to apples website it is a good idea to completely drain the battery at least once a month, and then do a full recharge, to help prolong the life of the battery.
I usually keep my battery topped up, and it is very rarely below 50% so I am thinking it would be a good idea to drain it overnight while I am sleeping, anyone got any ideas how best to accomplish this?
I thought it was kinda funny when I read reports of people unable to recharge their ipads using the USB ports or their PC's and hear that they don't supply enough power.Ironically enough, I just realised that my 2007 macbook pro (the one right before unibody macbookpros came out) is unable to recharge my recently delivered ipad.
None of the two usb ports is able to provide enough energy.It's annoying now since I have to fully recharge it before I'm able to sync it to my mac. Hey Apple, I want an EFI update to fix this
I have just become the proud owner of an Ipad4, and am curious to know the average recharge time for the Ipad. Having let it fully deplete, it took approx. 9 hours to charge to 100%. Charging from e.g 20 to 100% can take 5 to 6 hours or thereabouts. I usually place it on recharge, when it gets down to 15 to 20 % . Although, it takes quite some time to charge up, it does hold its charge for for a few days.
Can't Turn On And Recharge - Unable To Sync With Macbook
Aug 3, 2010
Im facing serious problem with Ipad, the device cant turn on, I try to press the power on button for 5 second, I try to recharge through the power cord and power source, I try to sync through my Macbook Pro, and nothing.. the screen still black ( looks like theres no energy in the Ipad and no way to do that ). I think its a hardware problem.. less them 25 days using... very disapointed. I bought the Ipad in France and I living in the South America.
Share your tips for iPad battery management! Here are mine:Keep it plugged in while you sleep. I developed this nightly ritual for the iPhone and it works just as well for the iPad.Buy a car charger. For me, the order of operations when I get in my car is: start engine, plug in iPhone/iPad, punch in GPS coordinates if necessary, then drive off.Keep a USB charger at your work desk so you can charge it through your computer if necessary.Turn down brightness, especially when reading. The screen is so bright as it is that I find even the average brightness level too bright. I never turn up the brightness above 50% unless I'm looking at high-res photos.Receive new emails manually, or have them pushed 30 minutes. Anything above that is overkill - do you really need the iPad to wake up and check for new emails every 5 minutes?
