The iPad , since its launch people have been complaining about the charging problem. They say the device doesn’t charge fully even when it displays onscreen that it is full. Apple now has come up with their response. All Things D reported from Apple had broken it down for them.
The iPad just displays 100-percent charge, but it actually it isn’t. It continues to charge further to capacity, and simultaneously discharges a little and then again charges to 100 percent.
Apple VP Michael Tchao explains “That circuitry is designed so you can keep your device plugged in as long as you would like. It’s a great feature that’s always been in iOS.”
Yankee Group analyst Carl Howe told All Things D:
“[W]e shouldn’t apply our prejudices formed (both good and bad) from older generations of battery technology to today’s systems… If it says it’s charged, consumers should assume it is, and not worry about whether the charger is drawing current.”
