    Just a random question...
    I usually let mine go to 20 percent before letting it charge to 100%.

    I usually let the battery drain completely once a month, per Apple instructions. Other than that I try to remember to do a full charge every night for the next day.

    Usually until it is about 10-20% and completely drained once a month.

    10-20%. I've been charging every other night mostly so often.

    Does anybody shut down the iPad overnight? Would turning it off each night extend the battery life? I know the iPad is just an oversized phone and I never turn my phone off.

    Shouldn't make much difference since it uses so little power when asleep.

    Normally until it's on it's last legs. Or until I've finished using it.
    Most of the time I let it charge overnight. Although sometimes I've used it whilst charging. Sometime I wish the cable was a little longer!

    I let it get to 5 precent before I charge it. I usually don't charge it until the battery is about to be out of juice. i think since getting my ipad i've only charged it once, or twice. I've had it for almost a week.

    If I am home it is always plugged in and streaming Pandora so it usually doesn't get drained that far down between charges
    Several times a month I will unplug it and let it run until it runs out of power
