battery replacement

Why won't my iPad charge?

Episode 1230

Eric from Hollywood, CA

Eric has a first generation iPad that won't charge. Leo says that the original iPad needed a 10 watt charger and if he's using the smaller cube, that may be the problem. He should try a USB charger that's 5 volts and 2 amps. That should do it. If not, it's likely that the battery has reached the end of it's life and needs to be replaced. Apple will replace it for about $90, but if he's a hardy type, iFixit has directions and videos on how to do it.
