My newer ipad will not hold a charge even when every app is off, just sitting.  In two hours it went from 60%-off and I was out of house.  Yesterday went from 100% down to 27% without even looking at it.  Everything that I know of is not running to take any power.  What is using this power?...|lose-battery-power-60-2-hrs-visibly-running

my ipad is on an infinite loop.  I used IOS7 for a few days and then did updates on some of my apps. that's when the infinite loop started.  I have tried pressing the power and home button at the same time, but it doesn't work. Please help!I even tried some hints posted for ios6 (turn off ipad, holding home button and plugging in power cord at the same time and then releasing the home button) I did manage to get a different screen that shows the itunes icon and a power cord, but nothing happens....|ipad-infinite-loop-ios7-days-updates-apps-infinite-loop-started

I just recently purchased my ipad and noticed that I might not be using the power button correctly.I am able to power down succesfully without any problem, but Im a bit confused on how long I need to hold down the power button to power up. Sometimes it seems that pressing the button once with a single click powers up. Other times it seems I must press the button slightly longer before it will power up.Can anyone comfirm how long I must press the power button?Thanks PC Windows XP...|power-button-long-hold-power-ipad

Hi all,I have an older iBook with the power cord that connects to the power adapter after you remove a square connector. It looks like the power adapter that comes with the ipad has the same configuration. does anyone know if I can take the same approach as I am doing with my iBook to extend the length of the power cable?Thanks,Ed iMac 15 Flat Panel Mac OS X (10.3.x)...|power-cord-ibook-power-adapter-ipad

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 have owned an ipad since they first shipped in April 2010. I picked up an ipad 2 when they first started shipping last week. The ipad 2 battery drains at a much higher rate than the original. I see it losing 10 percent or more while in sleep mode over night. They are both set up to fetch mail manually, location services are off as are notifications. I am concerned that this may indicate some other issue. Anyone else notice this?RA ipad iOS 4...|ipad2-drains-battery-quickly-sleep-mode
