[Update] Overview: Battery capacity (mAh & Wh) of the Apple iPad models

Apple tablet battery mAh

How much mAh battery capacity does my iPad have? - You may have asked yourself this question while looking for a power bank, a charger or perhaps a new, better Apple tablet. In the following I have summarized the Apple iPad battery capacity in mAh (and with an update also in watt hours or Wh) for each model. Since there can be confusion with the names / designations, I have packed the year and model number for you. And if you are now wondering "Which iPad generation do I have?", There are also tips on determining the iPad model below. This is how you can find all the information you need about iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad Pro;)

Note: This post first appeared in 2017 and has been updated since then.

What is the battery capacity in mAh of my iPad and how do I determine the model number? These questions are clarified here. So you quickly know how many milliampere hours your Apple tablet has;)

Battery capacity (mAh & Wh) of the Apple iPad models including Pro, Air and mini

To make it as easy as possible, the individual iPad models, their model number and the associated battery capacity in milliampere hours (mAh) and the battery capacity in watt hours (Wh) are listed in the following table. I've tried very hard to bring the correct data together, but I don't want to rule out any typing errors. The information is therefore without guarantee. Thanks to constant updates, you can find the iPad battery capacities in mAh and Wh for newer models such as iPad, iPad mini and iPad Pro from 2021.

Which iPad generation do I have?

Just like when you do the Determine the iPhone model number you just have to look at the back of the device with the iPad. There is a lot of data on your Apple iPad, such as the serial number that it was designed in California and assembled in China, what specifications the charger should have and so on. And you can also find the model number under the information on the back of the iPad:

If you want to determine the capacity of your iPad's battery, you may need the model number. You can find this on the back of the device.

If you want to determine the capacity of your iPad's battery, you may need the model number. You can find this on the back of the device.

Summary

Determine the iPad model, look for the model number in the table and then read out the battery capacity in mAh or Wh - it can be that simple;) If you have any questions or hints, please leave a comment on the topic. You can also find some here on the blog Power banks put to the test, so that you can choose exactly the model with which your iPad comes best during the day or the week. But always remember: not only the mAh information on the iPad and Powerbank are important.

    Hello everyone: D

    Can my iPad be damaged if I charge it with a "Fast Charger 3.0" with 45.3W? I am interested in the following charger: Aukey 45.3W universal 3-way USB charger Quick Charge 3.0 AiPower (PAT-14).

    I hope you can help me, thanks!

    My iPad: iPad Pro 12.9 "(2015), 10.307 mAh

    • sir appleot says:

      Hello Nue! No, nothing can happen there. However, the "QuickCharge" is only of interest for Samsung devices (and some others, but not Apple). Apple uses the USB Power Delivery Standard for fast charging, so you have no advantage with the power adapter when charging. But I think the 2015 iPad doesn't support USB PD anyway. In short: you can use the charger without hesitation. Can't break there. The iPad only "takes" as much power as it needs. So don't worry ... ;-) LG! Jens

    Hello, I have been wondering for a long time how fast the IPhones / IPads actually charge, what about power delivery is the maximum value that is now recorded, and how much was it before? For example, is a 20w wall charger worthwhile with the old iPhone 6 series?

    • Jen Kleinholz says:

      Hello Frosko! With iPhones it is about twice as fast according to my measurements. This means that you can go from 0 to 50% with USB PD in about 30 minutes, but only half as fast with old iPhones (iPhone 7 and earlier). Unfortunately, your iPhone 6 does not yet support USB PD. This has only been around since the iPhone 8.

    iPad 7th gen
    32,4 Wh / 8.827 mAh

    (the 8827mAh are above from the list of other iPads with the same amount of energy)

    Thank you. Well, I'm really happy that my two year old iPad still has 100 percent battery capacity.
    Otherwise, I'm disappointed that the iPhone battery has a capacity of 68 percent after two and a half years
