    Plug it in when you go to bed. Good for another ten hours use when you get up.

    Will that not overcharge the ipad? They say you need to add another extra hour or two when the battery indicator says 100%

    No. The iPad does not overcharge. And you don't need to keep charging an extra hour or tow after it says 100%. That report was dead wrong and has been debunked by Apple. The iPad is designed so that you can leave it on the charger indefinitely, if you want.

    leaving it charged indefinitely might lessen battery life capacity in long term due to heat it produces especially when using the iPad while charging. Though lithium batteries have a protective circuitry to cut off current heat is its arch enemy.

    I plug mine in when I go to bed at night, around 9:30-10. I unplug when I get up, between 6-7 AM. I use it intermittently throughout the day, and always have some charge left when I plug it in again.

    I agree.. the iPad won't let you overcharge it, when it gets to a certain point it cuts off, I also doubt that adding a extra 1 or 2 hours beyond the point where it reaches 100% is actually putting much if anything into the battery, so completely safe.

    EDIT: Having now had it for a few months, and having done a few full charges, it's settled down nicely.. After a full charge it will take 30mins of use before dropping from the 100% mark, battery life is good with an average of 11 to 12 hrs, so no complaints at all here after 3mths use... it's looking good.

    Odd my new ipad takes ages to taper from 100%. Easily 15 to 20 mins browsing on wifi.

    Do you all find that the battery lasts longer if the pad is off when charging? I haven't got my new ipad3 delivered yet, but any device I've owned has lasted a very long time by only charging when powered down.
