Apple iPad Battery Replacement in Singapore
Looking for an iPad battery replacement in Singapore? You’ve come to the right place to diagnose your iPad!
If you have been using your iPad for years, you may notice that your battery health is draining. Although this is a common issue from long-term usage, it is still important to get your device checked to rule out any underlying issues such as a bloated battery (Fact: swollen batteries can explode).
In this article, we will run through the potential issues your iPad is facing before deciding if an iPad battery replacement is what you need.
4 Common iPad Battery Problems Users Face
Device Shuts Down Unexpectedly
An iPad shutting down suddenly could be due to several reasons. It could be either the device has a software issue such as incompatible apps, or a hardware issue such as a malfunctioning battery or a motherboard.
If you notice that your iPad’s temperature has exceeded its normal range, it could be a sign of an overheated battery.
Unable To Charge Up Your Device
You noticed that your iPad’s battery percentage does not budge despite having a lightning bolt symbol on your battery icon. Worse, the battery continues to deplete as if it has never been charged. If you have ruled out a charger issue, then you may have a case of a bloated battery that needs immediate attention.
Another clue that your battery needs to be replaced is if your iPad does not last for more than 24 hours, even if you are not using it. An iPad should be able to last for a few days when it is fully charged.
If your apps are taking a while to start up or your iPad is lagging in performance, it is time to check your battery health as it could be a sign that your iPad battery needs a replacement.
How Much Does iPad Battery Replacement Cost?
According to Apple’s website, the cost for an out-of-warranty iPad battery replacement in Singapore will cost between S$140.30 to S$277.57 depending on the type of model. If you have Apple Care +, you can get your battery replaced for free if your iPad battery retains less than 80% of its original capacity.
However, many clients who have an Apple Care + plan choose to get their iPads fixed at a third-party Apple repair centre as it is both time-saving and price-saving. The average iPad battery replacement in Singapore will cost between S$48 to S$ 148.
How To Keep My iPad Battery In The Best Condition?
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are some tips to prolong the life of your iPad battery and keep it in optimal condition:
- Don’t let your device drain to 0% as this will cause the battery to drain faster. If you do not use your iPad regularly, then perform a complete charge cycle by charging your battery fully to 100% once a month.
- Always charge using your iPad’s original charger and avoid using other third-party chargers as this will damage your battery in the long run.
- Never place your iPad in either too hot or cold temperature locations as it will deplete the battery’s lifespan. Hence, you should never leave your iPad under direct sunlight, especially with Singapore’s hot weather.
- Do update your iPad to the latest iOS version as it will include features and fixes that can enhance your battery life.

An iPad battery lasts between two to three years or after 1,000 charge cycles (charging to 100%) before it loses its battery capacity. If your battery health’s maximum capacity is below 80 %, it is a sign that your battery is in degrading condition and you will need a battery replacement.
