HT4060: iPad: Charging the battery

Learn about iPad: Charging the battery

HT4060 I charge my iPad mini through an extension which my iPhone has no problem charging. The problem is consistently and persistently, even after I change to different sockets, the iPad mini for some reason stops charging itself. Help?

This is my second day using the iPad mini and I've encountered some odd behaviour while charging my iPad mini. I charge my iPad mini through extension sockets, which previously and currently my iPhone 4S charges with no issue. The problem is my iPad stops charging itself, of which the timing of when it stops charging I have no idea, randomly. The same socket I unplug and plug back again, it charges. Then when I'm not noticing, it sometimes stops charging. For that extension sockets, I tried it on on different sockets which none of it is of problem for my iPhone. Is it that my extension sockets are faulty? Or the iPad mini is designed to stop charging for a certain reason? Or the iPad mini itself is faulty?

iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular (MM), iOS 6.1
