    How often do you charge your iPad, and what percentage is it usually at when you charge? I do it every night since I run it down to about ~25%.
    Feel free to add in anything else about charging you want.

    I plug this puppy in every night for full charge out in the field the next day. I forgot last night ~ now I am at 43%.:(

    Is there a car charger for the iPad?

    I usually let mine get down to about 20% before I put it on the charger, which is typically every 3-4 days.

    I usually have to charge up every other day or so. At that point, I'm down to about 20%.

    I use mine until I have to charge. Generally, I am going to be near a charger long enough for a full charge. I have one at work, 2 at home not including the sync cable (my MacBookPro will charge the iPad even with the screen on, unlike my old HP and other Window machines). I get 2 to 3 hours solid use a day, so I end up charging about every 4-5 days. With an hour commute each way on a bus everyday, There is 2 hours right there.

    The only time I charge it when it is above 5% is when I know I will be out for an extended period of time or know I will be using the screen at full brightness for a decent period of time.

    Right now, I am at 35% and dont plan on charging unless I really use it a lot tonight.

    Hmm. I wonder whether you have a defective battery. Techs at the Apple store were able to check and swap out my MacBookPro battery in just a few minutes when it wouldn't hold a reasonable charge.

    In answer to your question, though, my battery usually lasts for about 10-12 hours, though videos and games are rare, so I tend to charge it every night whether it needs it or not.

    Also take a look at just how you are using the iPad. Is the screen brightness way up? Do you have the radios (Wifi, 3G, BT, GPS) on and running when you don't need them? When listening to music, are you using the Equalizer functions? What about Location Services? If you don't need them, turn them off.
