my mini can only charge up to 93% max using the supplied charger will try to drain out the batt and re-charge..
Try reboot it after you unplug from the charger, it should shows 100%.

Hi, I think I owe some answer to some forum friends here. I did not call the tech support anymore. I gave a real last shot. I bring the two 5W charger that cannot charge fully, to my office to charge. For the last 5 days, no matter what battery percentage my iPad mini is, it can simply charge to 100%!! My conclusion can be three factors. The temperature in my office is rather cold. So the charger will not be that hot. Secondly is that I keep charging it with my iPad 12W charger before I decided to give a try in my office. Thirdly maybe the default power point in my room got issue. Now the last thing I could try is to switch to other power outlet in my house to charge, using the original charger.
Highly likely it is due to the temperature problem.

Have you guys gone thru the battery full cycle charging for a few times? Try to do that and it should revert to normal.

I went thru full battery calibration mode for 4 times, by draining the battery until ipad mini cannot even boot up, and charge all the way...still kana stuck at 90%. I call Apple and they keep insist it is software issue and want me to hard reset and also refresh OS. I fed up bring to my office to charge instead. No problem so far charging in office. Maybe really be the temperature issue. But why for those who have this issue always stuck at 89% - 90% one? Cannot be so jun temerature reach max at these two points mah...

If you done that and you should be returning it. Sound like a hardware issue.

Unboxed and i never use the 5w charger. All along using ipad 2 charger. No issue and always able to charge to 100%.
Strangely, this morning plugged in and charged my mini(32gb celluar)that read at 83% in car. Using those gmarket purchased 12v usb chargers that come with 2.1A and 1A port. The 83% maintained at 83% despite 20mins of traveling, despite showing thunder sign(not not charging) and i am certain i am using the 2.1A port that meant for ipad.
Unplugged from 12v car charger and plug in again. This time round able to charge and when i alighted from my car after about 30mins drive, the batt reads at 98%.
My wild thinking, is theret a chip or regulator in the mini to detect new charging source? And the chip wil deter charging within the grace period and eventually accept it...funny..

Note:using original sync cable.

I did a restore to the ipad mini using ipad2 backup. Some of the photos became very low resolution (blurry) while others are still clear as per ipad quality.

Anyone face this problem? Any idea how to resolve this problem? Thanks
