    When the warranty expires, Apple will replace the battery for $99.00 + shipping. You send in yours and they send a replacement unit back with new batteries.. I don't know if it's new or if it's a refurb. See the link below:

    Pretty sure a referb. I'm sure that 99 bucks covers new glass and battery. Maybe new aluminum backing. Two days after they get yours, they replace battery and send it to the guy who just sent his in.

    If I remember correctly, the iPad can go through 4000 charge cycles. If it's like the iPhone that's good.

    iPhone works like this, you start out with 100%. You use 60% in one day and recharge. Next day you use 40%. You again recharge. So in those two days you used 100% of power which = 1 charge cycle.

    If that's the same with iPad.. Wow that's roughly 8000 days for me

    I have been off sick this week (back to work now) but on Tuesday, I basically ran the iPad into the ground. I started using it around 10am and stopped around 7pm or so. I was using wifi the whole time surfing and watching videos with the speaker only, no headphones. It asked me to plug in at 10% at around 7pm. That is 9 hours, and I could have gone at least an hour more.

    I generally keep the screen brightness at about 25% - I will turn it up for movies to 100%.

    I cannot complain about battery life on this machine. Best I have seen on a portable device that is constantly connected to the internet ever. Even the Touch could not come close.

    I charge nightly. I've been using mine consistently today since 8 am and I'm now down to 20%. I just want to see the extent of how long it'll last me.

    I charge mine about every 2 days or so and I'm very active on it.

    So far with moderate usage, I'm getting about 3 to 4 days on a charge. I'm amazed at how long the iPad goes in between charges.
