I have a ipad2 . I have never had any problems with it,, up until a few weeks ago.. My Husband was on the ipad and I had told him it had maybe 5 to 10 percent left before it was going to die. So he plugged it into the charger.. and he continued using it while plugged in. Maybe a hour to 2 hours passed and I seen him trying to turn it on and he was checking to make sure the plug was in the wall and in the ipad correctly.. He knows how much I love my ipad he was scared to tell me that the ipad was charging one minute then turned off and wont charge . So I checked the plugs and changed outlets and it started showing the battery signal with a little red in it and I figured it was charging but it was maybe to dead to go on. so I left it like that for more then 24 hours and when I checked on it the next day. It was the same but this time it was going from showing the apple icon to battery with a little red displayed on the screen. so I left it alone and on the next day, I seen it from the corner of my eye , turn on but turned off 1 second later. so I watched to see what it was doing. And it was going from Apple icon to turning on then off and repeating it over and over. I wouldn't let me do nothing when it was on.. I did notice that when it did turn on for that quick second I seen that the battery display on the top right concern said 1%.. now does anyone know what's going on?? I hear that it is something with charger base , then I hear that its the hardware, got fried.. SOMEONE PLEASE PUT SOME ANSWERS TO MY QUESTION.
