Lingering concerns about overheating were not enough to prevent Consumer Reports from naming the new Apple iPad as its top tablet device.
The influential electronics review firm said that the majority of iPad customers would likely not be plagued by the high temperatures which had been reported in early tests.
The company found that while in some cases new iPads could hit temperatures of 122 Fahrenheit, or 10 degrees hotter than the iPad 2, such use cases were limited to extremely long sessions running taxing applications such as high-end games in very warm temperatures.
"Our findings suggest that if you're a serious gamer, you might want to manage how you use the new iPad by reducing screen brightness when possible, which will not only reduce heat but increase battery life and facilitate full recharging," wrote consumer reports electronics editor Paul Reynolds.
"Other consumers should find little of concern in our extended tests, on either the heat or recharging issues."
The report could help to allay consumer fears that the new iPad was prone to uncomfortable levels of overheating. Early tests suggested that when the display was used at maximum brightness the tablet was reaching extremely high temperatures.
Consumer Reports was able to recreate the high temperatures, but the site noted that the issues were quickly resolved by dropping the brightness of the screen.
The site has also named the iPad as its top tablet system, placing Apple's newest tablet over Android devices in large part because of Apple's recent hardware updates.
Apple made hardware updates the focal point of its latest iPad release. The new tablet features a high-resolution Retina display and a faster processor. Early sales of the device exceeded three million units.
