    Hi all,

    My ipad showed that I only had 19% battery usage left this morning so I placed it on charge. I have just checked to see how it is doing and the meter in the top right of the screen now shows only 16% battery left. This is 7 hrs later and, yes, it made the sound that it was charging together with showing the lightning symbol at the side of the meter.
    The ipad is only 2 years old and although used daily I do try to maintain the battery.
    Any ideas p,eae, before it goes down completely?
    Mike

    Sorry, forgot to add that I always use the charger and cable that came with the iPad and recently I charged my iPad fully on the same kit, no problem.

    Here's what you could try:

    Reset your iPad (Home and Power button...).
    Use a different wall outlet. Maybe this will help.
    Take a look at the port, maybe it has to be cleaned. If you have to clean it, do so very cautiously and carefully.
    If possible, use a different cable and/or charger. Although they were charging before, there still could have happened something in the meantime that damaged them.

    I do hope one of these will fix your problem. :)

    Hi Johanna,
    Thank you very much. I had done everything you suggest, other than a different charger as I do not have spare. That was the next step
    I have just checked and after 30 mins, the charge has risen fro 16% to 20%. Here's hoping

    Just an update to let you know that my beloved ipad has charged ok. Seems to be back to normal so I guess it was down to one of the solutions recommended by J. A. Anyway, relieved to know that I do not have to put a new ipad on my Christmas list, I wish!
    All the best to everyone, have a good Season.
