MGG 742 - iPad battery issue
On espisode 742 a listener question was related to an iPad that was only responsive when plugged in to a high capacity charger. One thing to try before taking it in for battery replacement is to plug it in to a good charger and let it sit overnight.
I have seen the behavior described on a family members iPad that was let drain all the way down and sat that way for a period of time. After plugging it in and letting it charge overnight, it was back to full functionality the next day.
Of course, once it is up and running using a program to check on the health of the battery is a good next step to determine if a battery replacement is needed.
