Is Your New iPad at 100% Charge? Well, Maybe Not...

Soneira of DisplayMate suggests the tablet device is not fully charged even when the on-screen meter says 100 percent."</em></p><p><img height="241" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1331425284.usr105634.jpg" width="600" /></p><p>When I first charged my new iPad, I thought it took longer than it did on my old one, and apparently it does. It takes up to 5 hours to charge the new iPad, and according to<a href="http://www.displaymate.com/iPad_ShootOut_1.htm" target="_blank"> this report</a>, when it says it is at 100%, it really isn't. The solution is to let it stay on charger about an hour after it hits 100%. And this isn't just an iPad problem per Dr. Soneira, it happens with numerous devices. So this is a good heads up, but I wouldn't necessarily call it a problem. What are your thoughts?</p>
