    I know, but it seams we are all mad at something...I can not know all or everyones issues, but for now my Ipad3 is charged 100% and I am using itand it appears to be charging at the sametime. It does not charge hooked to my Airbook...It is charging while I am using it...So my issues are fixed..I guess I need a class as my text skills are lacking...Such as FU and KMA and LOL all is well

    Mostly just mad that we don't have fully functional devices.  Unfortunately it is sometimes difficult to tell what's going through someone's mind on the internets.  Anyway, I'm glad that you have a functional device!  I'm off to the Apple store to exchange my "perfect except for a few dead pixels" iPad now.  Wish me luck!

    I can only suggest that you connect it to your computer and Itunes and revert back to the clean Ipad, install the new update and see if that helps...It did for me...I am now happy...The cloud will not fix it...which is another suck should be on the cloud

    I am sorry for your display, mine is perfect, but I could not keep it charged...I am sure you can fix the pixel isssue with a new screen...Happy you can get it exchanged... Stay Safe!

    by experience... change the USB cable and try again ;-)

    if that helps, go to the shop and ask them to swap a USB cable for u

    So far, for the ppl with charging probs.. can try farmerpig's method...
    1. Restore to factory defaults via Itunes
    2. Update the Ipad via itunes...


    If the above works, it means IPADS from factory has been preinstalled with wrong or bugged software? LoL

    better check if brightness and other stuffs are turned off by default.


    Btw, turning off positioning, 4G and lowering brightness does save alot of battery life.

    Thank for your post...My settings were reinstalled, half brightness, positioning off and I am still charging while plugged in and suffing the net / using apps...I believe this is the fix....But since I did this today and I am still redownloading my apps, I can not be sure, But I am charging my Ipad3 while all else is going on...and I could not do this before...It would have been a battery drain...not no more, it is charging while using!

    Half brightness is not a fix.  We all know it will charge at half brightness.  The problem is having it charge at full brightness like every other device on the planet.  The threshold is between 75 and 85% brightness.  Beyond that, it will not charge while being used.

  • farmerpig Level 1 (0 points)

    Ok, My Ipad(3) is now at full brightness and I am still downloading apps, yet from the cloud, but I am still showing I am charging...So maybe the fix, as I advised several blog inputs ago will work...Dud, did you do what I said to do, if you did not, FU! - I am sure after reading all of my post's you know what that means...Not perfect but depend...Who Dat!

    The iPad 10W USB Power Adapter, Apple iPad Adapter are turning to cosmetic design of 2006, but contains enhancements that have never been seen on Apple products and the size of the previous price. The new circuit inside allows the 10W Adapter works with any iPhone and iPod released since 2005, and the relative power hungry iPad, dynamic switching between 0.5 Amp, 1 Amp and 2.1 Amp output level so that one device can recharge the maximum possible rate-about 3 hours for the iPod and iPhone vs 4 or 4.5 hours for the iPad. My new iPad with RIGHT charger as delivered in the box charges from 10% to full capacity in 6 hrs. NO CHARGING PROBLEMS WHAT SO EVER. If you compare the specs (tiny, tiny letters) on the various chargers you have with the one for the New Ipad you notice a difference in amps, but they're all 10W. Hope this helps. See also

    If you mean not seen since the release of the original iPad then you are correct. And there was no iPhone in 2005, I am assuming you meant 2007.

  • DavidMills7 Level 1 (0 points)

    There was an iPod released ;)

  • deggie Level 9 (52,662 points)

    There have been many iPods released.

    Not only are you right but,

    1. One of the iPad 3's was at 67% and all others 94-97%. None at 100%

    2. Then I went past three tablets in a row that were at 100% before I realized I had turned to the iPad2 display.


    Many posters on this thread should chill but the reality is the iPad3 I bought to upgrade the wife's iPad 1 was returned today, day 14 after purchase, with no hassle. They guy who took it said it was his first open box return. The screen was resolutionary but the battery was a slow charge, quick discharge under low demands, in spite of the tricks listed on this thread. It was warm with use, not hot, but all she was doing was book reading and Words with friends. I went through THREE of the gen one MacAir's before getting one that was good (not hot, no kernal failures) so I may be a bit sensitive on being an early adopter. I also have an iPad2 and it is a good machine. May be the best thing to get now if you are in a wifi environment is the iPad2 at $399. Pretty great machine for that price. The safe play here if you want an iPad3 is to wait a couple of months. Apple will fix it along the way, perhaps without acknowledging the issue. I say wait until you see 100% battery on the display iPads in the store before your buy.

    As far as the dead pixels and the pink/yellow hue on the screen, I didn't have it. The screen was very nice. I miss it already even though it was "hers."

    Having the same problems as pretty much everybody else on this thread with the charge level dropping during use even though plugged in to the supplied charger.  Just did a small experiment and turned the screen brightness down to 50% from the max level I usually use.  The charge was at 96% and still plugged in, I did some surfing and email, noted that the charge level did not change (good, i thought, at least it's not still dropping), then opened iCal, stared at it for a minute, stood up and went into the kitchen for 5 minutes (no more, really).  When I returned, I was shocked to see the reported charge level at 100%!  ***!  This sudden jump screams "software issue" to me, as it is physically impossible for the battery to charge that much in that short of a time.  Undoubtedly there are genuine hardware issues as well (I've tried turning off LTE and cellular and still saw the drain issue), but there has to be a SW bug on the charge level reporting side, too, perhaps in the power management as well (we can hope; this means a future update could fix).  FWIW, this is my third iPad (one of each gen), and my screen is definitely one of the amber colored ones and in general the unit is not up to the same quality as the priors (in addition to the screen and power/battery life issues, the home button sticks out too far).


    BTW, in the time it took to type this out on my iPad, the charge level now show 100% with the plug icon.  Weird...
