Not terrible for a $200 savings...but almost definitely not "Apple Certified Refurbished"
April 17, 2017
Had a couple of dings, didn't include the correct charger (arrived w/ iPhone charger vs. iPad charger), and the battery was stone cold dead. However, upon charging the unit with a real iPad charger, it did appear to take and hold a charge.
Not terrible for a $200 savings, so the experience could have been worse. Nevertheless, I'm not sure what's being peddled here is actually an Apple "Certified Refurbished" product. I've purchased "Certified Refurbished" products directly from Apple before, and the standard was definitely much higher.
So, the key question is: who exactly is "certifying" these refurbished iPads? I'm confident it's not Apple.
