There has been a lot of complaints flying around regarding the new iPad. They don’t seem to come to an end anytime soon.
Today we get Dr. Reymond Soneira, creator of DisplayMate, who actually measured the power the new iPad draws when you’re charging it. Interestingly, it will continue to charge even though the battery indicator shows that it’s fully charged. It will continue to charge up to 1 hour after it claims to have reached full battery charge.
“I measured the power actually drawn by the AC Adapter and found that the new iPad continues to charge for up to 1 hour after it claims to reach 100 percent,” Soneira said for Ars Technica. “This affects the battery run time if you stop charging when it says 100 percent. Other tablets and smartphones also lie about their charging status, so if getting maximum battery run time is crucial, people need to keep their devices recharging for longer than the screen claims.”
