The New iPad – 3 Possible Solutions for the Heat Issue

The New iPad Heat Issue Could be Solved

The New Apple® iPad® is a Hot Product! It is selling like Hot Cakes! Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company had a record sale of 3 million iPads sold in the first 3 days.

However, many early adopters complained of its heating issue.

Naturally, with the faster dual-core A5X chip with quad-core graphics, and a 70 percent larger battery (42.5Wh) as compared to the iPad 2 (25Wh), there is bound to be more Heat generated.

The new iPad is warm, but still acceptable to be held for a long period of time. In fact, a normal human being would feel more comfortable sitting on something warm for a longer period of time, than sitting on a cold metal bench.

One suggested solution to reduce the heat produced, is to turn off Auto Brightness and manually reduce the brightness of the display, but that would defeat the purpose of having the nice Retina display technology.

The Retina™ Display is reported to consume only 65% of the total power, and thus have been ruled out to be the main culprit in the heat issue.

Another great suggestion from users, is to run the battery all the way down, and then charge it fully again as per normal.

This power cycling method was used by many, to prolong rechargable battery life, but in this situation, it also resets the PRAM (Parameter Random Access Memory) and allows the new iPad to run cooler.

The third suggested solution would be to use the new iPad together with a laptop cooler.

However, most laptop coolers are USB powered, so we need to find one that is battery powered or does not use any batteries at all.



Here is a cooling solution that does not require any batteries.
