iPad 3 To Have Thinner, Lighter Battery Empty iPad 3 To Have Thinner, Lighter Battery

Post  Admin Tue Sep 06, 2011 5:42 pm

Simplo Technology and Dynapack International Technology have been awarded contracts to produce the battery for the Apple iPad 3, according to the Taiwan Economic News. Both companies are already suppliers for the current iPad and Apple's MacBook laptops.

The new battery has been changed up. It will be thinner and lighter--which may or may not mean the iPad 3 will also be thinner and lighter. The battery will also have a longer service life than the iPad 2's, though specifics on that weren't provided.

Additionally, the new battery pack will be required to meet the CTIA IEEE 1625 standard. This standard provides a basis for creating higher quality batteries that meat higher safety requirements. Apple would be conforming to a trend in this respect, as suppliers such as AT&T won't sell devices that don't conform to the new standard.

Thinner, lighter, longer-lasting--this all sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it sort of is.
