iPad Charging is Certainly Low Cost

"All of our electronic gizmos, whether as large as a 27" iMac or as tiny as an iPod nano, need electricity to thrive."

Interestingly enough, you can find out exactly what it costs to power an iPad all year at the Electric Power Research Institute, and it turns out to be about $1.36 USD per year. Laptops, by comparison, are about 6 times as much in the usage department.

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

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 11:00 AM

"As pointed out by Ars Technica, a report on the iPad by Dr. Raymond M. Soneira of DisplayMate suggests the tablet device is not fully charged even when the on-screen meter says 100 percent."

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 this report, 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?
