    Are you sure you're using the IPad charger end that came in the box with you're iPad? It will only trickle charge using a computer. I don't do it on my iPad 4 but I'm positive my girlfriend uses her iPad 3 while charging and it does take the charge, albeit slower than usual of course.

Still, if you ever felt the plug after it is fully charged, it is cool (as opposed to very warm while charging) leading me to believe no more power going to the battery. I always figure my iPod 4 charges about 15% a hour.
    G'day cyndy, no need for concern. What buerkletucson quoting the iPad executive above quite correctly said, you can't overcharge or harm your iPad in any way by leaving your iPad on the dock for whatever time.

    I bought an iPad 4 last week, actually my first Apple product, and I love it. Basically except for work, I haven't been off the thing!

    I initally charged my iPad using the supplied Lightning cable that came with it but I found it too short when stood in a stand on my desk and plugged into the mains so I ordered a 2 metre one from Amazon. This turned out not to be ideal as the iPad would drain when connected to the mains and while I was using it, albeit slower than the normal battery drain when off the mains. This does not happen with the official 1 metre lead. This lead would also only charge my iPad 4 to 80%, at which point it complained that the accessory was not compatible (which is weird when it managed to get to 80%).

    Anyway, I managed to find another 2 metre lead that was listed as being compatible with the iPad 4 and this one works fine, as well as the original lead from the three days I have been using it, recharging my iPad in around five hours, although I always do it overnight so it might well be longer. It will also recharge while it use and connected to the mains with this lead too, although how quickly is dependent on the screen brightness. As long as it is 50% or less then it'll recharge while in use but I typically have my screen on 33% brightness anyway otherwise I find it too bright. I seem to be able to get 10 hours of my iPad between recharges, although I've mostly been downloading stuff, browsing the internet and reading digital magazines not gaming.

    I'm a bit puzzled what the problem might be. Get a long enough extension cord and you could recharge your iPad from a power point in the room next door.

    I got an iPad 4 last week and u
    I was testing his battery capacites, and I can say that:
    1. A new iPad without nothing on it (you just set it up) it need 5 days to die the battery and 3 hours to fully charge
    2. If you are playing on it from fully charged, you can get 10 hours full of fun with it
    And this was all what I observed yet, be sure that if I observer something new I will post again

    Good luck finding the IPad 3, they are discontinued. I would definitely get the Ipad 4

    Apple sells refurbished iPad 3's in its stores and it's online store. They're cheaper than they were when new and carry a full one year warranty. They take just as long to charge as the iPad 4, about 5 or 6 hours.

    Best Buy continues to sell them as do many online retailers.
