+ - New iPad can run significantly hotter than the iPad 2 ->

Submitted by E IS mC(Square)
E IS mC(Square) (721736) writes "Consumer Reports have tested and found the new ipad to have some temperature issues. From TFA: "The new iPad can run significantly hotter than the earlier iPad 2 model when running an action game, Consumer Reports testers have found... Using a thermal imaging camera, Consumer Reports engineers recorded temperatures as high as 116 degrees Fahrenheit on the front and rear of the new iPad while playing Infinity Blade II. Our tests follow numerous complaints now cropping up about how hot the new iPad can get while doing processor-intensive tasks, such as gaming or downloads.

We also noticed that the new iPad wasn't charging while the game was running and it was plugged in. In fact, the battery continued to drain. It charged normally, however, when we weren't running a game.""
