    Hi, new to this forum. Just wondering if anybody is experiencing something similar. My ipad 4 looses power when in use even when plugged in to the main. It's never happen to my old ipad 2 and does not happen to my iPhone either. Any thought or suggestion? Tanx

    The Retina Display is very hungry, particularly when set to higher levels of brightness. It's easily possible that you are drawing power faster than your charger can supply it. For the fastest charge turn your display off as well as any apps that draw power such as GPS, and charge overnight. You can't overcharge. When the iPad has had enough if will stop drawing power.

    That's Not Good.


    Personally I've never experienced that type of bug before.
    The device does pack-a-mean-punch and it does have apps running and GPS,
    So maybe that's why it's draining battery while its charging. Just for a while keep the GPS off
    And close applications if your not using them and see if you encounter that problem if you do
    That's when I suggest you call Apple or a company that repairs the Free of for cheap.

    Everything is turned off. I am only surfing that is and it's very very hot as well even whilst in the case.

    I find that charging my iPad 2 only just keeps up when I'm using it in my truck. I use MotionX GPS HD, and keep the screen on nearly maximum brightness. I'm not above having music blasting out either, although I find that Music is very light on battery use on it's own.

    Could be a duff battery. If it gets that hot, and you're sure the battery consumption is abnormal, you should probably take it in to the Apple Store. Do a backup first, as they may exchange it on the spot. Then you can set up a new one from the backup, and won't have to go through the tedium of setting up from scratch.

    For this purpose, I'd back up to a computer.

    I think display is eating the battery. Just decrease the brightness and turnoff the wifi when you are not using it.
