The New iPad Keeps Charging Beyond 100 Percent

by on March 23rd, 2012

In a recent study by DisplayMate (via iLounge) there have been some apparent discrepancies between the use of the new iPad’s battery life. They noticed that even after the iPad showed it was fully 100% charged, via the included 10W charger, it still pulled energy for up to one hour after changing from charging to fully charged.

iLounge noticed that there have been instances of when the battery only went down 2% during the first hour of use and 10% for every hour afterwards. Is this an issue of iOS not being consistent in showing battery numbers to make it seem like faster charging and slower loss?

This ‘trickle charging’ past 100% is not new though. iPhone users have known and experienced this for years. Since the new iPad’s battery packs 70% more juice than the iPad 2, charging times take longer than normal.

Have any of you noticed any discrepancies with battery life when using the iPad?
