This faulty charger causes overheat. It stops charging whenever it reaches max temperature.
You can try to charge under 20'C room temperature.
The charger will able to charge 100%.
Yeach.. It"s freakin' stupid. But Apple still doesn't acknowledge this issue.
Even the service centre refuses to exchange this faulty charger.
My solution: get myself a 12W charger for normal iPad.
It works fine!
At the end Apple is just great design with bad service and quality!

When I tried to charge my ipad mini (battery level at 63%) today, it stopped charging at 86% after 3 hours. This ipad mini was bought on 28/3/2013 from an apple authorised store/centre. My friend is experiencing the same issue too. What is wrong? Is there something wrong with my mini ipad or the adapter/charger?
iPad Mini, iOS 6.1.3

My big suspect is the faulty charger.
This happened exactly to my iPad Mini.
You can try to use other iPad charger, it should work.
Or you can still charge with your iPad Mini charger under 20'C room temperature.

HAd the same exact problem as many here are facing,only charging till 88% or 89% and then it got disconnected.
BOught my ipad mini on the 30th June 2013 and there's 60% battery on it when purchased. And started charging it for the 1st time on 1st July and charging stopped at 89% and wont charge untill i pulled out the cable and reconnect it then only it will continue to charge to 100%. The next day when battery had drained to 15%,charged it for the 2nd time and same thing happened,charged at 88% and stopped there. Now the 3rd day after purchased,tried using my ipad 3rd generation's power adapter and with the ipad mini's cable,charged ipad mini and then only i get a smooth fluent charge to 100% without being disconnected. But what i am worry about here is whether the different power adapter which i am using from the ipad3 to charge my ipad mini will cause any harm to my device.

I have the same problem with the I pad mini not charging at all or not fully. Took it to an apple store to have it checked out. They said that the plug was not apple and that's where the problem is. They plugged my mini into there system and it started charging straight away. If I use my partners plug with my lightening cable it also charges straight away.
I I pad mini came in an apple box and contained the plug. !!! Have yet to purchase another plug as the shop could only offer two pin and I need a three pin and do not wish to use an adaptor. Julia

I was told by the apple store that the plug was not produced by apple, and I should buy an apple one. it was in the apple box when I bought the package. This is not good good so many people with the same problem they should sort it julia

Same thing happened to me. I tried everything, but the Ipad Mini would not charge... while on that is. If I turn it off, it charges from the wall adapter or while plugged into the USB port. Ridiculous. Even all my cheap Android tablets don't have this problem.
