    Hey guys. So this is my first post and I have been thinking about this one for a while. I dunno if this issue has been raised before, but here goes.

    Here is the scenario:
    A while back I had a nokia cell phone. I fell into a routine where I would charge my phone, if it was close to flat, just before I went out. After a while I noticed that all the charging created a kind of memory and I was only able to get about 90% of the battery life. (my battery run flat quicker)

    1. Is it possible that a battery can have a memory build up and if you never let it run totally flat you lose full battery life?
    2. Must the iPad run completely flat before I charge it, in order to get maximum battery life? Or do I charge it anytime?
    3. I am in the office 90% of the day and my iPad is connected most of the time to my pc. Does the iPad charge through the pc?

    P.s. I have iPad 2 16GB wifi +3G

    1. iPad batteries do not have memory effect, so you can charge at any time.
    2. As per 1, charge at any time. apple advises running the battery down once a month but only to calibrate the battery meter.
    3. Yes, your PC's USB will trickle charge your iPad but your iPad will say that it isn't charging.
