This is a discussion on How many do u charge ur ipad in a day? within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Originally Posted by Gabriel1 No, that is not the recommendation by Apple, you should only do this once a month and only then to recalibrate ...
I agree! Once a month complete discharge and charge all devices overnight, fresh for the days use

Keep your battery operating between 25and 75% always except for that occasional full discharge for the meter calibration.
Just regard 25% as empty and 75% as full. That's the best for the batt itself. If you insist on having the maximum 10hr duration period go ahead but it is not the method that will help your average batt life overall over time. It is not a problem to get the full 10 hr usage occasionally or even constantly. It will perform for you but it won't last as long as it might if you use the 25 % / 75% method. I say treat it as you choose, a newly installed battery from Apple is approx $60.

I use my iPad lots, about 7-10 hours a day and have to charge every 3 or so days. I have most notifications turned off, and only have location settings on for the apps that definitely require it. I turn off wifi when I don't need it (watching a movie, playing music etc). Brightness plays a big part in battery usage- when it's full bright, I only get one days usage. I also close all open apps when done (dbl-click home button) although this is a highly debated issue about if this has any impact on battery life... Otherwise, it's pretty normal to recharge very day (depending on usage).
It depends on the applications and other factors. If you want the save battery power, keep 3G off when on wifi, keep the brightness as low as it looks decent. Any program with lots of graphics/video will use more power. Video over internet is a power demand. If you are doing music and low key games, you can go long times on a charge.
It is normal. I charge iPhone every night when I go to bed. I have to charge it the next evening.
Typically, I do not provide links to external sites, however, since including one enhances this conversation I thought it appropriate to share
