    How often do you charge your iPad (or iPhone/iPod)'s battery?
    EDIT: I typed hare instead of charge in the question (autocorrected!) Sorry, I mean charge!

    Probably about weekly. Unless I need it fully charged for something (road trip etc), I run it almost all the way down every time before I charge it up overnight.

    Once a day. Or once every two days. It usually charge when I sleep. Full recharged when I wake up.

    Wow, I pretty much run my battery down to less than 10% every day, thus I have to charge it daily. But, right now I am not working, so it is my greatest source of entertainment, job hunting, etc.

    Daily or more, I'm on the iPad most of the day, but when I'm not using it, it's charging.

    For me, it depends how much charge is left. I usually charge when it goes below 50% for my iPhone and iPad

    I find that my battery life seems to be extended with ios6.

    I did just upgrade to The New IPad, 32 GB, wifi and cell. I had I only a few days before the update.
    I can say wi certainty that my iPhone 4S batty life has increased though, so I am thinking that the improvement I ham seeing onThe New iPad is also accurate.

    I am only charging my iPhone every coupe of days and my iPad sees a bit less use during the day, so it gets charged whenever appropriate. So far only once since the update and I'm currently on 87%

    I tend to keep mine plugged in most of the time, and run it down once a week.
    I forgot I started this thread until just now; that gives one an idea about how bad my memory is!

    Every 3,000 miles or when I get bored, which ever comes first (-Hank Hill). Seriously though, about every other day.

    The reason I use this charging pattern is so the battery won't wear out so fast...

    My iPhone 4S (now on iOS 6) was supplied by my employer and is used in my daily job so it gets used a lot so I charge it daily. It's rare that it gets below 70% even on my busiest days.

    My iPad 3 (which is also supplied by my employer and also now on iOS 6) gets charged once every 2 or 3 days. Sometimes longer. Depends on how much I use it.

    My daugther's iPad 2 goes on for days before she has to put it on a charge. She uses it every day - school work during the day and at night she watches Netflix or Hulu. I would say on average she charges it once every 3-4 days. The same goes with her iTouch.
