Hi there, I bought my first iPad,the 16 gb 2nd gen, and I love it ( also have a 4th gen touch). I have read many, many threads and still have a couple questions... bought a smart cover,which I like, but also bought a leather case,which I feel offers more protection...i am getting differing opinions everywhere i read about whether it is safe to charge in the case? really interested in whether this is ok... If have also read a lot of different stuff on the best thing to keep your battery at its best, and it also confuses me! I know i should do a full charge/discharge every month, but should I run it low before i charge, or only partially down...I look forward to anything anyone can tell me, I truly appreciate it...I can't tell you how much I love my iPad,it is awesome!
