    I have found I get headaches from the iPad when I fall asleep. The reason for this is the lithium battery and your resistance is lower when you're asleep . I have also proved that this is the case .

    Hello Hugh - welcome to the forum! :) Unfortunately, you've responded to nearly a 5 year-old thread which will not receive the attention deserved and likely will be closed. I could make a few comments but post(s) may disappear w/ closure - I would suggest that you start a new thread in an appropriate forum and elaborate more on your headache issue; also, tell us which iPad you own and the iOS installed - on recent devices/iOS, a new feature called Night Shift can be activated which might help w/ eyestrain and sleep issues. Dave

    @Hugh Mility O'Kelly
    I've moved your posts and replies to them to an own thread, where your problem will receive more attention.

    Do you have the iPad close to you when you're sleeping?

    When i get the headaches I usually fall asleep with the iPad in my hand. I had another device with lithium batteries and I put it in the bin in three days it was so bad. I then went to a specialist and told her what was wrong,she did not believe me until she tested me. Lithium in the back left of my head.Left side. Its an iPad 2 air 64 latest software

    Hi again Hugh - looks like you have a thread created - good! :) Now, I cannot address the 'lithium' issue; just seems difficult to imagine the light metal leaching from an iPad, if that is the implication from the above?

    Now, reading an iDevice in bed and falling asleep w/ your iPad in an odd position of your head/neck could certainly contribute to the headaches/neck aches - plenty of hits on the web for this issue over the years - but just for one check HERE. Of course, a test would be not to read the iPad in bed for a few days or so to see if the problem(s) improves or disappears. If you must read in the bed, then google 'iPad reading bed holders' - dozens of hits - did a screen capture of just a page of many below - let us know your thoughts. Good luck - Dave

    Technically you should not be using electronics right before you fall a sleep I often hear people say.

    Thomas has a point on a debated topic over the years; previously, I gave a link to one of Apple's newer technologies called Night Shift which changes the color tone of the display from a bluer 'daylight' color to a warmer yellow one - check the additional link, if interested; it is available on my Apple computers and iDevices, but have not given it a try yet. Dave :)

    Lithium-ion batteries contain very little lithium which is not in a metallic form. the health risks are considered quite minor although you shouldn't handle leaking or damaged batteries without taking proper precautions.

    Just read through the link from giradman post 7 must admit it had me sitting up straight away.
    We seem to forget that when the iPad is on the low table and you sit on the sofa,how you can slouch over within about 15 minutes. Got backache now, thanks for that
