Okay, so some people were worked up about the new iPad and how the battery was not fully charged even though the meter read 100 percent. Now, Apple VP Michael Tchao has spoken with AllThingsD to clarify the matter:
“That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like,” Tchao said. “It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.”
It appears to have gone largely unnoticed until this latest generation iPad, when DisplayMate analyst Ray Soneira noted that his testing showed the iPad not fully charged when it displayed 100 percent.
No matter where in that cycle a battery is, Tchao said, owners of the new iPad can expect the 10 hours of battery life that Apple has promised.
We always knew about trick charging of lithium ion batteries, and it’s great Apple is clarifying this to shut down new iPad naysayers.
