    Just had my iPad 2 2 months ago. I used my iPad for watching videos on YouTube for my 2 years old baby.he loves watching his fave show. But I have noticed that my iPad is already almost low bat at the end of the day so I have to charge it mostly everyday. Is this normal? Pls let me know.

    I use mine quite a bit and I charge it once everyday. The issue isn't so much how often you charge it but how long it will last on a full charge?

    Is it necessary to wait until the iPad is totally low bat before you charge it? I heard some rumors that u will destroy the battery or ur iPad if you charge it even if it's not totally lowbat.

    It's actually better for the battery to charge it often and not wait until its fully discharged. A full discharge and charge puts more strain on the battery.

    You should be getting 10 hours on a full charge. Apple also recommends letting your battery drain once a month to keep your battery indicator working properly.

    On both my iPads I've always had a full 10 hrs use. I put it on charge every night to wake up with a fresh 100% each morning. Sometimes on particularly high usage days I'll give it a few percent top up during the day too. I've experienced no battery degredation at all from the frequent recharging and partial recharging.

    I think that correct, works the same with laptops. I think keeping the iPad charging all the time is no too good

    I suggest you wait till it drains all the way, then you charge it back up again

    No, that is not the recommendation by Apple, you should only do this once a month and only then to recalibrate your battery meter.
