    Hey People ! I'm guessing you guys are really excited about this new fantastic product ! Not to mention, ME TOO ! Anyway just to find out, i bought the new iPad last night, 16th of march . When the iPad came out from the box, it had 90% on it. After much usage, now its 64%. So am i right to say that i am suppose to run down the battery and the charge it for 7/8 hours ?

    Please reply, THANKS !

    Let the battery to flat, then charge it fully. This will calibrate the battery percent charged display. After that just top up the charge any time, and once every few months let it go flat again.

    My new battery doesn't seem to be draining? Still at 100% after more than an hour of use? Also feel some warmth on back that I never felt on ipad2? Anyone else experiencing this?
