try kill all apps when charging ?

When you hook it to the charger, however, the iPad won't start charging until you stop using apps. This will probably be fixed with an update, but it's an annoying little bug for now

I already confirmed that wifi is off and no apps running.
The first charge brought it to 100%. But the moment i off the switch, it showed me 99%.
On switch - 100%
off switch - 99%

So i left it hooked up to the charger and left for work. came back from work. its stuck at 95% despite being charged the whole day

FYI- I leave my wifi on and background games on- charged for 7hrs and hit 100%.
Once hit 100%, I unplug and start using for 1/2 an hour on Internet browsing , replying to comments in forums before it drop from 100-99%

Mine is 4G 64gb white.

Yes, u should. My new iPad virgin charge was on the 1st day which I received at a 70% battery life. I charged till full before using.

The next charge is when I used up the whole battery where the iPad shut down itself before I performed a full 100% charged.

I personally quite impress with the long last battery life except for the super long charging hours.

As for the heat, it is not even close to my ausu laptop and it's quite manageable and not as hot as some folks claims.
