With Apple’s iPad Mini event scheduled for 23rd October, we can expect some more leaks and details about the iPad Mini coming out. MacRumors – an Apple Blog has published photos of a purported iPad mini battery pack.
According to the report the battery’s model number is A1445 and an Apple part number f 616-0641. The battery is said to be running at 3.72 volts, offering 16.7 watt-hour of energy on 4490 mAh of charge.
The article concluded that, “the battery is clearly not yet an official part ready for shipping, as it contains placeholders for several portions of regulatory text and blank rectangular placeholders for a number of regulatory logos. It seems likely, however, that this is the final design simply awaiting final certification.”
An AppleInsider article on the sam report highlighted that, “the battery in the third-generation iPad’s battery is identified as part number A1389, and carries an APN of 616-0593.” The report went out to state that, “While we can not confirm the authenticity of the part, the markings are consistent with those seen on batteries from other Apple products. The battery’s proportions also seem to fit fairly well with what is expected for the iPad mini, although the exact dimensions of the part are unknown.”
