Battery Charge Timing/how Long Should Charge At First?
Dec 3, 2010
I just got my ipad yesterday...how long do I need to charge the battery before I can use it. And I read that the battery should be completely run down once a month and recharged. I don't think I'll be using it enough to do that. What is the fastest way to run it down so that I can recharge.
Battery Timing-battery Will Be Depleted Quicker With The WIFI
May 6, 2010
For those of you that have both the wifi version and the 3g version could you please comment on the following:For the ipad 3G, with 3G turned off, remote location services turned off, bluetooth turned off and WIFI turned on; does the battery last the same as the WIFI version running similar tasks.Im told that even with these components turned off the battery will be depleted quicker than the WIFI version. Sounds silly initially but there may be some truth behind it but just might not be measurable. The same person also said that the more memory i.e 64GB as opposed to 16GB will also use more power, however he said that again it maybe to small to notice.Anyway might be a good test for somebody lucky enough to own both a wifi and 3g versions of the ipad
IPad 2 - Battery Charge - Last As Long As Possible And Continue To Stay ?
Nov 17, 2011
I have recently purchased an iPad 2 32GB Wi-fi Only for my mother. I'm only seventeen, so it was a pretty big purchase. I really want the iPad battery and the iPad itself to last as long as possible and continue to stay as strong as it can. I have a Macbook myself, so I'm fairly familiar with Mac products, but seeing as I don't want to take the plastic off from around the iPad 2 box (since it's a gift), I was wondering if it came fully charged? If not, should I take it out and fully charge it before giving it to her?

Battery Charging Iming/harmful In Leaving Battery On Charge?
May 14, 2010
Anybody know if it matters or harms in anyway the iPad battery leaving it on charge? Maybe if your going to sleep or out for awhile and it only needs a short charge time, but it is hooked up much longer than it actually needs to be.

Have not charged from fully drained state, but did 48% in just over 3.5 hours, suggest about 8 hours to charge from 0% (stand by mode almost entire time).Actually boggle my mind, all that battery power. 25 W�h(!).Considering the charger is 2.1Amp, for 25W-h, suggests over 10 hours to charge from 0%.
