    Not really a question you can ask a in a poll. Most people will probably have it plugged in if they're sat at their desk or if it's low on power but can't give an exact percentage

    Except in rare cases, the battery lasts me all day. I plug it in before bed, and occasionally read a bit, thus my vote. But really, I leave my charger at home when at work and play.

    For the most part mine gets plugged in only at night...since I can.t sleep with it under my pillow I figure I might as well charge it.

    When it's low I charge it up and don't use it till it's fully recharged.

    When I'm at my desk I always plug it in and use it constantly as a second machine/monitor.

    Yes folks it truly can multitask, charge and display apps at the same time Oh My God! Woah! A double monitor! Oh My..........

    My answer is most of the time...

    But im just wondering..What is the point of this question if you dont even own one yet?? I dont see how asking if you use your ipad while charging can influence you dession in buying?

    Not being rude I swear, juist courious :eek:

    The iPad needs 10w to "fully" charge - that's more than most USB ports provide.

    If you have a new-ish computer (like in the last couple years) you iPad should charge - just slowly - when it's asleep. If the screen is on, however, it's not charging.

    great battery

    The battery is great so no need to plug in like a Iphone or Ipod while playing games or what not.

    Very rarely. I like to sit back in my couch with the iPad and the supplied charging cable is too short to reach from the wall socket.

    Not really a good poll. If you need to use it then you use it....that includes when it is plugged it.

    It lasts all day. I charge it at night while sleeping. I often watch a movie to fall asleep with and the movie cuts off when done if I fall asleep first. So it's not used much while charging.

    Mine ran low today while using it, so I plugged it in and kept going.
    The chord is so short I had to hunker near the edge of the couch. (I believe you can now buy a longer chord)

    Longer chords can be bought but they are not much longer

    When my iPad is plugged into my computer it only charges when its asleep, not when on.

    using the iPad is fine when its charging, may just take longer to charge

    Haven't used it once while charging- haven't needed too. First computer that I haven't had to worry about when it comes to battery life.

    What? Poll closed?

    Add me to the zero percent please...

    I charge mine when the batt is less than ten percent which takes about two days of use...
