Link: 70 Percent More ☍

Shared on March 15, 2012

M.G. Siegler reviews the new iPad for TechCrunch and a certain part really stuck out to me as the big feature of the new iPad (the Retina Display is awesome, but also very familiar and expected):

So how was Apple able to keep the battery life the same while adding LTE and without drastically changing the design? It appears that they’ve had a fairly major breakthrough in their battery technology. While the new battery clearly isn’t much bigger than the old one, it can hold much more juice (42 watt-hours versus 25-watt-hours). The downside of this is that I’ve found it takes quite a bit longer to charge the new iPad. As in several hours — you’ll probably want to do it overnight.
