Android tablets not as “hot” as the new iPad

If you are looking for an induction stove incorporated in a tablet, the new iPad might just be the right choice. According to some research done by PCWorld, the new iPad is the tablet that gets most heated as compared to tablets by other manufacturers. The new iPad is not only hotter than the iPad 2 but also beats the Asus Transformer Prime by around 4 to 9 degrees depending on the situation.

A lot of news has been circulating lately about how the new iPad is much hotter (in terms of temperature) than its forerunners. The components found guilty were the gigantic battery, the updated processor and the high resolution screen. Basically all the new things included in the new iPad are to blame for the exponential rise in the working temperature of the tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 LTE had comparable heat output to the new iPad. Under some conditions, it was even a little hotter than the Apple product but by and large the new iPad overshadows every other tablet in the market in regards to high heat output.

A hotter battery can lead to battery degeneration. This will lead to reduction in battery lifespan. In order to tackle this problem it is advisable to keep an eye on the tablet at all times. In case it gets awfully heated up, reduce the screen brightness or best of all, switch off the tablet operations and give it some time to cool down.
