Charge Time AirpadXL
« on: May 21, 2012, 12:28:55 PM »

What is the actual charge time of the Airpad XL from when it automatically shuts down because the battery is too low to continue to power it safely enough that it won't abruptly cut off and be improperly shutdown.
The so called manual that comes in the box says "It may take up to 4 hours to fully charge the unit."
This is not true with my XL I once started charging it with the power off at 2:30pm and 8:30pm it was still not fully charged and that is 6 hours. Not only after 9 hours of charging was it finally fully charged that is it said "Charged" on the lock screen.
How ever it also says
"The AirPadXL does NOT charge via the included USB cable."

and this is NOT True because if you plug in a USB Cable it Will start to charger but it has to have enough current to keep up with the power draw the tablet has when powered on so you can't trust the lame manual that comes with the AirpadXL.
