    5 What will TOTALLY drain the 100% charged BATTERY on an ipad AIR overnight while turned off?

    I can't figure it out. Battery so dead (down to 5-11% ) that it won't even turn on!
    I DID discover that my phone, ipad and computer charge up TWICE AS FAST if I put them in the AIRPLANE MODE while charging!!

    You who SEEK revenge,or JUSTICE for the wrongs, crimes and sins done to you, will find it in the same place that God is freely handing out Mercy, At the Cross, where Christ died taking the punishment not only for your sins, but also for the sins committed against you by others!

    My guess would be one or more of the following:
    You had WiFi turned on
    You had hotspot turned on
    You had Facebook or some other website that constantly updates on in a browser
    You had an email app turned on that checks for new mail often
    You had Zello turned on (a comms app) that continually receives and stores messages when they are sent.
    You had your screen turned on

    Sounds like the ipad was in sleep mode instead of turned off. Still had a lot of stuff running while appearing to be off.

    Maybe it was some kind of paranormal apparition that sucked the battery life to recharge their spiritual being
    I don't like making plans for the day because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in courtroom.

    Unless you hold down the power button and then slide the on-screen slider to turn it off, it’s not off. The screen is, but the device is still runnng,

    I always turn it off like that. That's what puzzles me.
    I don't seem to have that happen if I put it in Airplane mode before turning it off.
    I watched (twice) the HOW TO CHANGE THE BATTERY in an ipad air that is on youtube and I am not looking forward to that job.

    How cold was the area it was in? I had a good cell phone battery completely drain because I left it in my bag and the bag was on the floor. My floors are unisulated and the temps here have been down to 0 and lower lately.
    Please, come say Hi! and share your experience/knowledge. I love to learn.

    I use a Zagg keyboard; if I leave the keyboard on overnight it can affect the battery of the ipad the next day.

    Which is why I’d just pay the Apple store guys to do it. Fortunately, my iPad is now semi-retired.


    I actually leave the iPad plugged in to charge overnight, and unplug it in the morning.

    That's what I do with my tablet (a Samsung S2), although under heavy use (when in laid up flat in bed from my spine acting up, or like now when I'm visiting away from home) I sometimes have to charge it again in the middle of the day. I use RavPower charging packs, and it works great.

    Maybe I should start another thread,but if you're looking for a portable "power pack" to recharge a phone or tablet, you just cant beat RavPower's products and customer service.

    I dropped my best (highest capacity) pack and one of the plugs for connecting the tablet (it has 2.1amp and a 2.4 amp plug) broke loose inside the thing. The other plug worked, so I decided I could live with it (no funds to spare) Well, I was on their website for some reason, and discovered that if you registered your product, they gave you an extra 6 months warranty... mine had about 2 weeks left.

    So, I emailed them, and they asked for the serial number of the power pack. When they verified it was still (barely) under warranty, thry immediately sent me a brand new one. No questions asked... didn't care that I dropped it, or even that it still worked. Great products and company.

    BTW, they now sell packs that have enough amperage to start a car or light truck, but still fit in a pocket or purse! And they still work as a tablet or phone charger. We gave them to all three of our sons for their birthdays (all born within 2 weeks of Christmas)

    All my "I" devices have had battery drain issues when off with the latest IOS. My phone will drain 20-40% in just a few hours of just sitting there on the counter. Never used to happen until this latest update.

    I noticed the drain too with the latest update. I also noticed that now the bluetooth is defaulted to "on" and I have to physically turn it off.

    In case you missed it, I think Apple is doing this on purpose. Several class action lawsuits have recently been filed. Plus see my thread on Apple battery replacement.

    I will probably get some bad rap but when I am home, I always leave my Smartphone plugged in. Even like right now as my phone is charged 100%.

    Yup, that hurts your battery life. I used to do the same thing.

    I had that happening on my Android, turned out it was Google Maps that was using so much power it would suck it down from 100 percent to nearly Zero in about four hours, I removed the app and no problems.

    I do the same. How does this hurt the battery life?

    Seriously can you clear open apps by double clicking the home button and deleting them?

    Batteries are designed to cycle their charge. By not cycling them, they become less able to cycle properly over time. This has nothing to do with the 'memory' issue that NiCd batteries used to have. Think of it as a 'crutch'. If the battery is always using the crutch, it can't 'walk' on its own.

    Just a sidenote-last week FL's Iphone battery 'Bulged' splitting the case. Phone was about 4 years old.

    Could 'someone' access your ipad remotely?

    I remember reading a few years ago about patents pending on Apps- I think for Verizon.

    One was to turn on the phone and take pictures w/o anyone knowing. (I'm sure taking pictures w/o anyone knowing was one, not really sure about turning it on, but I think so.)
    One was to detect a heartbeat - said they could tell who was holding the phone if your heartbeat or someone else's.
    One was to detect if the phone was in a car, a plane, a train, etc.

    They sounded pretty odd to me.

    I do that all the time to increase the speed when I get a sluggish response to input and to just maximize my slow comcast internet access.

    If I am playing any kind of OFFLINE game, the advertisements in the game will actually pause the game responses, destroying my “TIMES” for game finish because MY “game clock” ticks away while I wait for the constantly changing advertisment in the corner of the background loads the next advertisement, preventing my next play!
    So, in order to play OFFLINE word, card, and board games without pauses to wait for ads to load, I have to put the ipad into “Airplane” mode to cut off internet access to the ipad.
    You who SEEK revenge,or JUSTICE for the wrongs, crimes and sins done to you, will find it in the same place that God is freely handing out Mercy, At the Cross, where Christ died taking the punishment not only for your sins, but also for the sins committed against you by others!
