100% SOC = -5.64 Ahs
12-FEB-2014

100% SOC = -5.64 Ah's




At 3:18 PM the iPad clicked over to 100% SOC and had consumed -5.64 Ah's to get there. At this point I stopped the test.


DISCLAIMER: It should be noted that my iPad Air does not discontinue charging when it says 100% SOC. It continued drawing 0.8-0.9A for approx 40 minutes beyond where it said "100%". Li batteries, in devices like this, stop charging when truly full. A 100% screen display on the iPad does not necessarily mean it is totally full or done consuming charging energy. After noticing this I discovered that this is a fairly well known issue. It makes sense because tracking Li SOC can be very difficult...


Just because your screen says 100% this does not mean it is full. When the charging icon disappears, then your iPad is fully charged....
