    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.

    Sometimes I have to charge it more than once a day. While it's charging I'm using one of my other iPads.

    Overnight, but it doesn't need it. I am usually around 75% or so by bedtime during the week, closer to 50% on the weekends(more free time to chill).
    I do full run down/shut off charge cycles once a month just to keep stuff chugging along and percentages accurate, they say you should so I do.

    I never put either iPhone 5 or iPad 3 on charge until they're down to 1% , this helps with conditioning the battery and maximises battery life , and they'll both last all day easily :)

    The iPad battery requires no conditioning. They can be charged at any point in the discharge cycle with no ill effects. The only reason it's recommended to run the battery down about once a month is to calibrate the battery percentage indicator.
