As is challenged by users worldwide, the new iPad tablet seems to reveal more problems: overheating in games, trouble charging the battery, and now the problems with stability WiFi network connection.

IPad 2 users, now the owners of a fresh new series of iPad tablet accuses a weak reception of WiFi signal. Inconvenience to the edge appears mostly to the range of wireless network, but also in locations where a standard laptop or old iPad tablet 2 have any problems with signal stability. According to reports from users, the signal is affected not only stability but also transfer rates obtained, it is sometimes even four times lower than those achieved with iPad 2.

So far Apple has not commented on the issues raised by users, but given the increasing number of complaints coming in forums, you may have to do with something more than isolated incidents, occurring sporadically in the new series iPad tablet.

The new iPad 3  has trouble charging the battery too

Problems seem to appear when we use the AC adapter included with the accessories and USB 2.0 connectivity provided by some PCs.
Failure to use USB 2.0 connection for power can be easily understood if we consider the battery capacity used, 70% higher than the iPad 2. Given the large difference between the maximum energy absorbed by the battery and very low amperage current supplied via USB 2.0, it is normal charging time is very high, even exceeding the speed to download an iPad on. In these circumstances it is understandable why some users complain that the new iPad will only download when connected to a USB 2.0 port.

However, I can’t understand why Apple shipped for the new iPad only one AC power adapter (10W), while a MacBook Air with a battery that has almost the same capacity, benefits from a feeder four times stronger.

Even if the AC adapter is connected, the new iPad’s battery “is getting tired” visibly if we insist to conduct demanding activities such as games or sessions using multiple applications simultaneously. The irony is that this time we notify the battery is under load, even though it is often the opposite.
