    Hello friend,


    Firstly you have to confirm that there is no problem in your charger.As you tell that it charge but stop at 85% so as my opinion there is no problem in your charger.There is some internal problem in your ipad. Firstly connect your ipad with some one else charger or try it to charge with USB cable through laptop or computer.If it will again stop at 85% then visit to the service center of the ipad and check your charger and ipad both.They solve your problem .

    I hope this help you a lot........


    Thanking you............

    I have had this experience too, I was using a non-standard lead and a lightning to USB adapter on an ipad 4, it would only charge to 85%. Changing to a different USB lead solved the problem. Hope that helps.
