    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.

    It's just a routine I've got into really, they go flat at the end of the day so I naturally recharge ready for their next days use!

    Once every 2 or 3 days. I use my iPad at least 2 hours per day.
