About battery drainage

One of the things that was wrong with my Samsung was that it kept draining battery power for example it would skip from 45% to 25 % in 5 minutes. I want to know is there a chance my iPad mini will do that? What can cause that to happen? Like I said somewhere else I want to cover all bases.
BTW my iPod classic never had that battery drainage problem and I had that since January 2011 . So I'm use sing Apple product are a more stronger brand.

Generally no, you will not have that issue.

Of course if you spend a lot of time gaming or watching videos on your iPad, the battery will be used faster than if those activities were not happening.

Please ignore makezuekarly, most of what they post is wrong, which is why most of their posts get deleted.

Your battery is fine. You should have no troubles at all.

Yes this is perfectly normal. The display was last updated when the iPad went to sleep, the updated after you woke it up. They don't update the display continually to save battery.

About battery drainage

Another issue I wonder is the over charging. I have to run errand with someone sometimes and time is afactor. Like right now the battery is st 88% charging but we need to run an errand before long and am afraid when we come back it will be overcharged damaging the battery. Is there a danger in overcharging? Even if the power is off?

Nope. Engineers thought of that years ago.

Yeah overcharging isn't something that should be considered now. All modern (and for a while to be honest) phones, tablets, laptops, etc. shouldn't suffer from overcharging (unless it's faulty manufacturing or something).

I know it's an old post, but I encountered something new. It's almost time for a charge now, but I remember that at 25% I turned the pad off then snout an hour later I turned it back on it was 20 %, is that normal to skip so much even when it's been turned off?

That's probably OK. I suspect that there may have been some app updates downloaded and applied using that battery.

That notice will be in your notifications if you pull down the top window.
