    Do you charge every day? Every couple days? Does your iPad last a week?!

    Also, what do you consider to be an optimal charging schedule to improve the non user serviceable battery?

    This poll could be further expanded to include the "How long does your battery REALLY last" poll, and you can answer that question if you would like.

    Bought it Friday with 89% charge. Dropped to 14% today and I charged it to 100%.

    I charge mine about twice a week (maybe every 3 days) but I wouldn't say I don't use it a lot. My battery lasts from 100% to dead approx 15 hours which is well above what is suggested. 5 hours usage a day when I don't use it for work is quite a lot in my opinion.

    When I bought it, it had something like 70% charge. Ever since then I've either let it run dead before charging or at the most about 5% and I don't over charge it. For example I don't leave it on charge overnight like I do my phone. It takes about 4 hours to fully charge.

    I generally charge every other day and I usually don't get below 50% charge.

    My I pad is almost public property at work. I have two other emp who are always stealing it. With all this usage I charge about every third day, if needed. We are on the wifi downloading videos or on Facebook. I do keep my screen at half power and it is more than a great display still.

    Every day. My nieces are on it constantly watching videos and listening to music. I listen to audiobooks. Usually between 20 and 40 percent each night when I plug it in.

    I plug it like a laptop. As soon as it's not in use it's plugged.

    I use mine constantly and still only need a charge every couple days. I'm still at 89 percent and I've been on it all day.

    So far, I've been really impressed by the life of the battery and it puts my iPhone first gen to absolute shame. I realize that the phone has a smaller battery, yes, but now I kind of expect phones to be on par with my iPad for some reason! :)
