With the New iPad already a weekend old, Cellular Firm eaves drops on a few interesting comments about a troublesome over-heating battery.
Indeed, the forum posts rising above the blogosphere clamour have trumpeted an over-heating iPad device.
According to Apple forum member TechnoMike, “Yesterday my iPad was massively over heated, I decided to use up all the battery…”
But this wasn’t an isolated incident, another post by masterblingpimp stated, “I just received an iPad 3 White 32GB WIFI, unfortunately, when holding it in portrait mode, the iPad WARMS UP (not overheat) on the left, near the bottom, where my hands would be. Anyone else notice this?“
Apple employees have gone on record articulating that the New iPad’s over-heating problem is due to its larger and more powerful battery.
But this shouldn’t be a surprise to iPad users both young and old.
Both the original iPad and the iPad 2 experienced overheating problems as well.
iPad operating temperatures are known to fluctuate between 0 degrees to 35 degrees C (32 degrees to 95 degrees F).
But are there any easy solutions?
According to TechnoMike, he suggests to drain the New iPad’s battery to zero per cent, then recharge again; ultimately “solving this problem.”
Another solution users can consider is to find iPad folios or protective cases.
Either way, akin to all wireless devices, the New iPad isn’t perfect.
