    All sounds off? Why bother with an iPad? I keep mind plugged in at home, work. I don't really feel a need to get 17-18 hours on a charge. I do let it charge down to near zero every so often, but once it gets below 40% I start getting nervous. Why do you like to do this? Save energy?

    I like to use all the features of mine, so I don't turn too much off (well, I do like to keep Do Not Disturb turn on on my phone to keep spammers at bay).
    Yeah, turning off too many features causes the iPad to lose some of its appeal! I don't leave mine plugged in but it gets charged probably 3-4 times per week and gets used a lot. I'd say we get about the standard ten hours out of one charge. The nice thing is that my iPad charges very fast and gets to 100% in a jiffy. IMO, battery life is a huge feather in the cap of the iPad devices.

    Yeah i like to charge as little as possible. I need it to be running a lot without wires. I can see the screen just fine at lowest ipad brightness. i also have some kind of eye sensitivity to bright lights so i just drop the brightness. but really everything is great especially the battery life. i keep it simple and focus on web, some youtube, books videos and games and i get great amount of time for each.

    Ah....the screen can get bright, especially in a dark or dim room. I keep my brightness down around 30-40%.
