iPad not charging fast enough on precision planting 2020.

I have my iPad connected to my precision planting 2020 monitor and am running yieldsense. The iPad shows that it is charging but the battery % keeps dropping. Any ideas? I have reduced my display brightness and this maybe helped slightly but still loosing ground.

I had the same problem turn down your screen brightness.

As with all batteries, they eventually become useless and won't charge or maintain a charge. If it is an Apple product, here is a web URL for Apple iPad Repair. If it is a device of another manufacturer, search the internet with the manufacturer's name and device type.

I’m assuming you’re plugged into a cigarette lighter. You need a better/more powerful adapter. Had the same issue and a quick change out of charger solved the problem

iPads charger are 2.1 amp where iPhone chargers are 1 amp. More than likely the piece plugged into the cigarette lighter is not a 2.1 amp USB port. If it has 2 USB ports they can be different amps.
