Feel bad for charging.

    Let me just say that the battery on this thing is incredible!

    But for the past few days my battery life hasnt gone under 70%, and I find it hard to decide at the end of the day if I want to plug it in over night, or just leave it be and drain out the remaining battery for the next day.

    I just like to have a fresh full battery every morning and im scared of possibly ruining my battery.

    What do you guys do/suggest?

    Sometimes I do sometimes I don't. But a lot of times I want to be sure I have a full battery, like you, for the next day, so I will charge it no matter.

    So a charge is considered from 0 - 100 percent if you charge say at 50% you only use half of a charge. The iPad battery is rated for 1000 charges so if you charged from 50% every night you would get 2000 charges. Also you should go from 100 - 0% one time per month so the battery meter continues to be accurate. So charge every night and enjoy your iPad.
