iPad Question

By Swift-R - 9/28/2012 11:57:47 PM

Does anyone know how long the iPad (3, new iPad) battery lasts with SkyDemon always on? Also, has anyone tryed the Cessna 152's cigarette lighter with iPad? I am not sure if the voltages are correct but I know that the SkyDemon Mobile MD comes with an aircraft power adapter (cigarette lighter) and I don't know if it works in the 152's lighter and the POH doesn't state anything about it, is this possible with the iPad?

I have flown a 3.5 hour leg with it (on full brightness) and there was 7% charge left when I reached the destination. Pretty impressive really!

With regard to the charger plug - just get a good quality one and you'll be fine. Look for ones that say they are suitable for 28V as this will cover all possibilities. I bought a twin 2.1A one which is tiny (no bigger than the body of the plug itself) and it works fine. It came from Expansys.
