Help! My iPad Doesn’t Hold a Charge

Posted in iPhone Repairs

When protected and maintained, an iPad can last for many years, but that is not necessarily true of the battery. Like all batteries, the iPad’s battery eventually holds less and less of a charge. If you have an iPad that barely holds a charge and needs to be plugged in to use, it is no longer living up to the mobility function that makes this device so popular. Here is what you should do if your iPad battery has lost its charging capacity.

Head to an iPad Repair Shop

The first thing to do is to find out for sure it is the battery causing the issue. Sometimes the port where you connect the charger is no longer supplying the electricity needed or there is some other issue. Many quality iPad repair shops will perform a free diagnostic on your iPad to determine what is wrong. If it is the battery, many of these shops can replace it for you.

What Does It Cost to Replace the Battery?

Cost on replacement batteries depends on the model and year of iPad you have but expect to pay more than just a few bucks. If you have an older iPad, you may want to consider your options. You may spend the money to replace the battery on your old iPad and then have something else go wrong. Some iPad repair shops will buy your device for cash, even with a bad battery, giving you money to put towards a new device instead of investing more into an obsolete model.

While it is possible to replace an iPad battery yourself, it is not always easy, and you could damage your device. It is best to bring it to a repair shop and find out your options.

iPad and iPhone Repairs

iPads and iPhones are extremely popular tools for consumers all over the United States and overseas.  Their popularity has contributed to the global decline in computer sales, as they have the same capabilities of a computer!  They offer amazing capabilities including phone, email, Internet access, video and still cameras, music, video and the ability to run tens of thousands of entertainment and productivity applications or “apps”.  The downside is that these devices are expensive and while they are generally very durable, either dropping it or having it exposed to water can damage them.   

In the past, a damaged device usually resulted in the need to buy a new device, with the owner learning a very expensive lesson.  Now it is possible for experienced and highly trained technical experts on iPhones and iPads to repair damaged devices quickly and economically.  iPad and iPhone repairs include touch-screen replacement, front glass and LCD replacement, water damage diagnostics and battery replacements.  The certified technicians have the specialized training, equipment and parts to work on the iPhone 3G, IPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3 and the iPad Mini.
