In case you're already bored of the same alleged iPad mini back plate leaking over and over again, here is a component that we haven't seen yet. What we are looking at is supposed to be the battery that will go inside Apple's rumored new tablet, or at least that is what tipsters are claiming. A closer inspection of the photos reveals that the cell has a voltage of 3.72V. Furthermore, it is rated at 4490mAh / 16.7Wh, which, to no surprise, puts its energy capacity in between those of the iPhone 5 and the new iPad. As a side note, the iPhone 5 holds a 5.45Wh battery, while the third-gen iPad has a 42.5Wh cell.

Unfortunately, we have no way of saying whether this really is the battery for the iPad mini, but judging by the way the cell is labeled, it might turn out to be the real deal. Chances are that we are dealing with a testing version of the cell as it lacks the necessary logos of the corresponding regulatory institutions.

The iPad mini has not been made official yet, but it is rumored that its unveiling is scheduled for later this month – on October 23. The tablet will likely be priced to compete with the current 7-inch Android devices and will come in 16 different variants.

Apple fans here. I have something to know. Ya, iPad is the best now and also the battery is great too. But why... iPhone battery is far more weaker? However, this iPad is super great!

This is a question anyone can answer, not just "Apple fans."

Tablets typically have better battery life than their smartphone counterparts mainly because manufacturers can fit in a larger battery.

Make sense?

come on Apple, your information-leaking-trick marketing is really old. It's been for years. THINK DIFFERENT, please
