    This might sound silly, but it's starting to really concern me. I'm wondering whether it's a bad thing to use your iPad for extremely long periods of time. I'm finding myself using the iPad for about 10 to 15 hours a day, most of the time every day of the week for months straight:eek: (I'm not exaggerating) Yes crazy but I can't help myself there are just too many things you can do on the iPad. So is this bad for the iPad? I say yes because using any product for that long would obviously be bad for it's health right? Or can the iPad handle that much use? I need a second opinion on this topic and maybe some advice on how long you should use the iPad on a weekly bases. I would also like to know roughly how many hours you guys use your iPads in about a week, if that isn't too much to ask. :D

    I'm semi-retired and spent about a year using my iPad 1 for 10+ hours a day. That iPad is now about 14 months old and going strong. I've been using it less of late, because I've been working more, but I bought an iPad 2 so I can alternate between charging one and using the other. If intensive use is "bad" for an iPad, I've seen no indication.

    Of course, an iPad battery has only so many charging cycles in it, so it'll run down depending individual use. I'm not sweating it. That's what replacement batteries are for.

    Not bad for the iPad, no...

    Might not be great for your social life though.

    Oh so I should be more concerned about the battery life then the iPad itself, I was unaware of the certain amount of charging cycles. It actually makes scents though, that much usage can't be good for the battery.

    Any rechargeable battery has only so many cycles. Like I said, I don't sweat that. I don't sweat my social life, either, lol. As you say, there are many uses for an Ipad.

    iPad is made to run!
    Using it all day will just run the amunt of charging cycles you have left down faster.

    No harm at all.

    If you use it for an extended period of time...you should get some kind of stand.

    I don't ever see anyone mention that whilst using their iPad in the home you could have it plugged into the mains thus not depleting your battery at all.
