    When I charge my iPad mini overnight it only shows 99% charge not 100%. Anyone else have this happen?

    It has been noticed before not only with mini but with the other iDevices.
    Usually the advice is to let it fully discharge until it shuts down, then charge it again for 6-8 hrs back to full. That's called battery calibration and is recommended to be done at least once a month to improve battery life.

    Try it and see how it goes.

    Hope it helps.

    Hello Bbueding.. The last 1% is a "Trickle Charge".. and your unit may take some time to reach it's full capacity.

    I actually heard that you should let your iOS products completely drain then charge them. Anyone agree or diagree?

    Happens to me almost every time. Usually 98 or 99.

    Your device will charge to 100% then the charge will stop until it goes down by 5 or 10 % and charge again. It's a safety thing with Apple if I'm not mistaken.

    If it really bugs you, just unplug for a second and then plug back in, will show 100% in about 2 mins ;-)
