    How often do you charge your iPad?

    I'm working now with the iPad just over a week now and just have charged it three times so far. In average it uses 5% of battery capacity for 30' use, which ends up with 10h battery life.

    What is your experience with battery life and charging?

    I tend to put mine on the dock whenever I am not using it to keep it charged, I've had it on a few flights, reading and watching movies for over 5 hours and have not seen the charge below 50 percent.

    i charge my unit about three times a week my main use as been surfing the internet along with game playing and music listening in the hotel ..most of the time it stays with me 24/7 when iam out away from the desktop ..

    when at work and waiting for the techs and the installers to finish up i sitting there playing a game of chess or cards with the game files to kill time ..i had more than a few people ask me if it was worth the money for the unit..i been telling anyone who think about the laptop beening the one thing that you need iam tell inless you doing some program that needs the laptop power set up ..this will do everthing a laptop will do for basic person who just surfs the internet and plays a few games and listen to music ..

    I really don't think with today's batteries it matters whether or not you run the battery down. These batteries should not suffer from memory effect.

    With that having been said - I've been told that it's good for these types of batteries to occasionally drain them to zero - which is probably bull

    I charge it every three to four days depending on usage. flew to Canada for a week and charged it once the entire time. it was great.

    I usually charge it every day but I very seldom let it run down. It last a good 10-12 hours.

    I'm getting my 3G today. Does it come charged, or is that the first thing you have to do, like most electronics?

    It will probably come almost completely charged. At least my WiFi one did. Use it today and/or tomorrow and top it off tonight or tomorrow night. Let it run down some and charge back up again and exercise the battery to different levels each time to help condition them. My understanding is that you can run lithiums down very low and recharge them back up, but never deplete them completely before charging, that will kill them early.

    I charge mine usually at the end of the day, not that I i need to! I can def go two and even three days without having to charge the pad. The wifi models has exceptional batterie life. I do believe that the 3G models batterie life will suffer when compared to the wifi only. So 3G owners be cautious of when your 3G is on and if your using it or not. 3G is the silent batterie killer lol.
