My ipad is only charging 20-30% overnight and when taken off charging the % charged drops off within 1/2hour. I took the ipad into an apple shop yesterday and they said there was nothing wrong with the battery and to make sure software is updated (they claim 80% of the time problems are related to software). I did this last night and no luck. I have tried charging it with another charger but no luck also. My husband is an engineer and suspects it's a dirty connection? Any ideas?
