The iPad 3 contains an 11,560mAh battery, the first take-apart of the third-generation Apple tablet has revealed.

That mAh rating amounts to 43Wh - almost double the 25Wh battery capacity built into the iPad 2, and bigger than the 35Wh battery used in the latest 11in MacBook Air notebook computer.
