    Hello. Usually electronic devices ships with 40% charged batteries. When I got mine it was fully charged. Is this how it is?

    One can only assume that all new iPads are given a charge at the factory, or perhaps the batteries are already partly charged when fitted, but it's unlikely that every new iPad will be showing the same % charge, as no two batteries will be exactly the same.

    I think mine was at around 70%. Assuming your's was indeed brand new with it's proper sealed shrink wrapping, then all is well.. it's likely a good indication that you possibly have quite a good battery in yours...in that it's holding its charge well. However, if one had a suspicious nature, and it was not a sealed new unit then it may indicate that someone else has given it a full charge.

    Hey, thanks for comment. It was sealed when I purchased it, so I guess I'm fine. It was also purchased at rather serious store in norway. But I know batteries keep their capacity best if you store them at 40%.

    My new iPad from the apple store came fully charged so I think it's quite common

    Make the most of your fully charged battery, because it last all of 5 minutes on the new ipad ! The battery life is rubbish

    I got mine on day one, and it was 90+ charged.

    "Rubbish" you say? :)

    Not quite that bad. I would say approx 70-80% of previous gen iPads.

    For the OP, both of our new iPads came with 92% charge on the battery.

    Cheers

    My launch iPad (3rd Gen) came in at 85%. My second one three weeks later came in it at 95%.

    I think Apple learned from the iPad 2 that they should ship them as close to a full charge as possible due to having to activate the 3G/LTE side when purchased.

    My iPad which I bought direct from Apple Store UK arrived with around 93% charge if I'm remembering right. Almost fully charged. I was surprised, and quite happy, as I could start 'playing' with it right away. Nice as most devices arrive mostly discharged and take hours to charge up before you can use them and I'll admit to being a tad impatient especially if it's something I've wanted for a long time and been looking forward to getting.

    As for battery life I get great battery life esp. in comparison to other mobile devices I own. I tend to charge it at night giving it plenty of time to charge up. Which also seems pretty quick, was expecting it to take ages given reviews on line but as I didn't own a previous generation maybe it is a lot slower to recharge, and I have yet to run out of battery life while using it even on days I've been using it for hours that day.
