Result:ipad 3 losing charge and not charging

I am new to the ipad, so htis battery usage may be normal, but I seem to be losing about 4-5% in an hour's worth of browcing on Safari or using an app. When I had asleep overnight it even lost battery.  I've turned off 'push notifications' & location use on most apps.    Also I am not using it with a Sim card at this point.I have the new ipad.What else can be done?...|battery-losing-charge-quickly-expect

I got my ipad opening day. By the end of the day, I noticed that even though I had the ipad plugged into the supplied charger with supplied cable, the battery was slowing draining at a rate of approximately 5% every hour. So I called apple care and they decided to send me a new replacement. However...|ipad-battery-losing-charge-plugged

I got the new ipad on June 2012 and I wish to keep the long life of the battery as much as I can. I always and only use the cable that comes with the product and never charge it through computer. Should I:1) wait till baterry is completely empty, pratectly dead and then charge it?2) charge it when it reach 5%-10%.3) turn off the ipad when I charge the battery? Thank you apple support :)...|results-keeping-battery-life-longer-charging-5-10-empty-charge

I've had the ipad now for almost a week and have not yet managed to bring up to fully charged.  Last night it was at 8%, and I turned it off and plugged it into the wall outlet.  This morning it was only 68%.  Surely this is not right? It also does not show any charging icon.  I took it to work and tested a different charger, and tested my charger on a different ipad.  The problem is definitely with the ipad and not the charger.  Any ideas on what to do?...|ipad-takes-age-charge-show-charging-symbol

My ipad (3rd Gen) seems to stop charging if it is plugged into my MBP if either the ipad is closed or if the MBP goes to sleep. My iPhone charges whether the MBP is awake or asleep or even if the MBP is closed. There is a screen display that shows the iPhone is charging. The ipad only has the tiny icon at the top of the screen that show it is charging. However, the battery's % charged does not increase if the lid is closed when I am charging the ipad if the lid is closed on the ipad or if the ipad off after pressing the on off button.

When I sync a text file to ipad, I lose formatting. I usually have to click a button that say I can read this but append here, and then I get something I can edit, but the formatting is gone. Then when I sync back to my main computer for finalization and sending out... Its STILL unformated. I have to go back and hit every single paragraph indent again.

My ipad clock was losing time.I resolved the issue by deactivating the screen saver on my PC. I determined that my PCs clock stopped working when my screen saver kicked in. When I touched any key on my keyboard the screen saver went away and my PCs clock started working again. Therefore, evertime my screen saver activated my PCs clock would not sync with my ipad clock. If this happended a dozen times a day my ipad clock would not sync and start losing time. ipad G3 64GB...|ipad-clock-losing-time
