These past few days we’ve heard many stories regarding the New iPads battery charging beyond the 100% mark, and requiring around an hour extra charge time. This report came in after a study was completed by Dr. Soneira late last week. But now we are hearing that extra charging could have negative affects on your device rather than positive.
CNBC reporter John Fortt is reporting that charging beyond 100% may help retain charge right now, but in the longterm could have negative affects. We’ve heard stories of this sort in the past with a range of devices, but they tend to be related to charging when the percentage bar isn’t near 0 percent. Check out CNBC’s video for the full report details:
Apple is saying when it reads 100% the battery indicator reads 100%. It’s actually full enough to give you the kind of performance that they promise in their marketing. That’s ten hours of all-day battery life. They say if you charge it more than that, you could harm the longevity of the battery. So they say this isn’t just an issue with the new iPad. It was an issue with the previous ones well but this battery is 70% bigger so you’re more likely to notice it.
Have you noticed your battery draining faster on your New iPad?
