    If it dies in the first year they will. after one year you will have to have purchased apple care to get it replaced.

    Well you should be covered for however long your extended warranty is for.

    And no they wont replace the battery if it dies, they will replace the entire ipad on the spot. No need to wait for it to be replaced or shipped off.

    Only??? If you charged your iPad every day, that would mean your battery would last almost 3 years! And it doesn't just all of a sudden die after 1000 charge cycles, but slowly over time, the battery will not be able to hold a charge as long. The other reason I am not going to sweat it is because I know me! I sincerely doubt I will be using the iPad I have now in 3 years.

    you could always charge less frequently and use AC more often, but the way lithium batteries are designed they are destined to die after certain amount of time regardless how you cycle them..

    I feel your pain my brother!

    Here is why I own 2 iPod Touches....

    So the battery on my 1st generation iPod Touch was getting a little tired, so I asked myself, "Self, how hard can it be to replace the battery?"

    Well I got the new battery in OK, but I mangled up the case so bad this is how I had to put it back together --



    Oh it still works, but I had to buy a new iPod Touch because I was too embarrassed to take this one out in public any more!

    Indeed. I will be buying the next version as soon as it comes out.

    As for the iPod I'd have gone for black straps.......would look meaner.

    I had to replace my battery in my iPod Touch last May and i already notice a decline in time it holds a charge under normal 'as usual' operation. It started out three days between charge cycle and now its two days. My original battery followed the same pattern, required a charge about every two days then one then hours.
