Third-gen iPad reportedly shows inaccurate battery level while charging

Quote:
A report alleges that the third-generation iPad continues to draw a significant amount of wattage after displaying a "100%" battery level, and claims that the device actually finishes the charging cycle some two hours after "prematurely reporting" a full charge.

Possibly when it is on and charging, the 80% "fast" charge is displayed as 100%. If it is off it may be more accurate.

I think devices do this anyway, my iPod classic has a low battery, if you plug it in for only like 30 Min. and unplug it, typically shows half or more though I don't believe it. People don't usually drain batteries all the way, but if it looks threatening they become more conservative with the use.

Wouldn't be surprised considering the 4s battery is so messed up. Sometimes after charging it all night it only says 97%.

My Blackberry Playbook only says up to 99% sometimes 98% plugged in, it has to be on for it to charge.
