    Hi Folks,

    Please forgive me for starting another thread, but I have one last thing to ask.

    I have just bought my brand new iPad and as I was leaving the PC World store the tech guy told me that I should charge the unit for TEN HOURS before even turning it on.

    I know this used to be common practice with batteries in years gone by but in this age of non-memory Lithium Ion batteries is it really necessary to do that?

    Did you all charge yours up for that period of time before getting stuck into it?

    Thanks.

    No, I just started using mine, my battery came almost full, and I asked the lady at the apple store if I should charge it fully first and she said no, just go ahead and start using it.
