My iPad 3 64gb/4G seemed to throw a wobbly during the night, in that.. I thought I'd give it a good charge cycle by running it right down, and give it a full recharge.
So at 1% I put it on charge using the proper 10watt charger, expecting to see it fully charged when I got up 8-hrs later, but when I just came to check, it strangly was displaying the 'Not Charging message' and was only showing 65% charged... so why did it stop at 65% ? mine doesn't normally get very warm at all, and it's pretty cold here in the night so I doubt it's temperature related. I'm hoping it was just a poor connection..
As soon as I unplugged the connector and re-inserted it again the 'Not Chargng message' went off and it's now charging again.
It may have just been a poor connection during the early hours, as unlike the iPad one which is sensibly designed around the edge, the thinner rounded edge iPads leave a bit to be desired I think, with regard to how well the connectors fit, as half 30way charging connector never goes into the iPad at all due to the rounded edge. When pushed in, it seems as though it only just about makes a connection... the square shape of the iPad 1 edge was more practical and sensible with regard to it's connectors IMO.
I've no idea what caused it... all I can do is hope there's not a charging issue.. after re-inserting the plug its charging okay and has now reached 70%.
Anyone else had any weird charging issues where it stopped charging part way through a full charge.?
