    I am going on a 6 hour plane ride and want to read a book on my Ipad, will the charge last that long or should I bring a hardcover book as backup? Ipad is relatively new, 6 months. Thanks

    iPad lasts for 10 hours without charging, on a full charge. So yes, according to @SweetPoison above and me, you WILL be fine.

    If your ipad is relatively new, 6 months. Then i would have though you would know how long it stays charged.

    Remember to turn on airplane mode, so your battery doesn't drain as your iPad searches for a signal.

    As others said, ten hours should be about right. But definitely turn down the brightness and select airplane mode as the battery will wear faster otherwise.

    The other night I forgot to take my Kindle with me and had to read on my iPad. I got about 5-6 hours worth of reading done and I started with my battery at 48%. If you start with 100% you should have absolutely no problems what so ever.

    You could even watch a movie and read for several hours during the flight.
    I use mine every time I travel.
    Just a word of warning.
    If you are going to a country with very slow Internet coverage ,down load movies before you go.
    I am staying in Vanuatu and it takes up to 5 days to down load a movie or 1-2 days for a tv show.
    So do lots before you go.
    I find books on kindle down load in the same time as at home in oz.
