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

"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?
