TECH Tips . . .

iPad Charging issues


Many students are complaining about charging issues such as only charging to 20 - 30%.


This could be because they are not using the 12v charging block provided to them at the beginning of the year.


Following is an example of the charging brick necessary to charge an ipad 7.


https://www.amazon.com/Certified-Foldable-Portable-Lightning-Compatible/dp/B093WRT5MJ/ref=sr_1_9?dchild=1&keywords=ipad+7th+generation+charger&qid=1632492331&sr=8-9


If a student is using any charging brick with less voltage, they will not get a full charge.
