    All the normal things as for any electrical device. There is nothing special other than to plug it in using the ipad cable and use the apple recharger or one that does not supply to much power.

    Don't try and quick charge it with some custom super-duper third party or home made charger.

    And ~ don't try to charge it through your computer/usb. Might be there for days as it is a very slow charge.

    I get over 10 hours in battery life and no, it is not dangerous. I plug mine in at night and go to bed and in the morning it is 100%. I am sure that it was 100% for quite a while.

    It isn't like the old batteries, from what I have read.

    So you are saying that on a 100% charge, your iPad only last 5 hours?

    Hold the power button and the home button down at the same time until you see the Apple logo.

    Let it reboot.

    When your iPad starts trippin ~ start with that step first.:)

    That really depends on the USB port / computer. My computer charges my iPad 2 completely in about 8 hours. Not as fast as the charger but it manages it overnight.

    Apple computers provide full charge 10 watt via USB so charge time is about the same as wall charge. I frankly use wall charge with ipad charger for the ipad, iPod, and iPhone. Charging from USB on. Pc in majority of cases is like waiting for the grass to grow as most only support 5 watt devices Life is 2 short don't bother

    I have heard from both Apple (though I haven't seen this in the documentation) and a local, very reputable Mac specialist (WeFixMacs) that leaving the charger on overnight is not advisable. There is circuitry built in to detect when the battery is 100% charged. When the battery reaches a full charge, the circuitry automatically shuts off the charger to prevent damage to the battery. However, the battery then begins to discharge and the charger is again turned on. Over time, this repeated turning on and off of the mechanism diminishes the overall battery life. That's the theory anyway and it makes sense I suppose.

    Having said that, I leave my iTouch plugged in all night, every night, and it seems quite strong after two years so we may be splitting hairs on this point. Insofar as getting only 5 hours on a charge, if the battery is still brand new, you can expect an increase in performance over time as the battery becomes "seasoned." But, over a little time (maybe two weeks at most) it should give you the full 10 hours, or very close to that with WiFi. I would report it now. Good Luck!

    When charging using a computer I think it depends on what USB port it is (1.1 or 2.0). Also I use the Apple Keyboard Extender to extend my iPad charging cable in style, will it affect it?
