Looking for a Creative Battery Drain Solution
I am looking for a creative idea to a unique problem. I have roughly 20 iPads setup at a remote site with no power. The iPads are connected to some large power banks to keep them juiced up for a week at a time.
Problem: If the iPads are unused for a period of time, they charge to full and the power bank eventually turns off. In turn, the iPad slowly dies a slow battery death and I have to go physically power everything back up.
My idea is to somehow slowly drain the iPad battery so that the power bank never turns off. I tried using an “always on” screen @ 30% brightness, but it drained the power banks too fast. I tried to hunt for an app that would do something like this, but haven’t had much luck.
Does anyone have any recommendations? Or perhaps a large scale power bank that doesn’t auto turn off when it’s not powering anything?
