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.
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%. (musing)
I charged my iPad to 100% last night and ran it down to about 87%. I plugged it in the same way I did last night to charge, but it's almost 3 hours now and still not done WAY longer than the phone.I am plugged in to my computer. How long can I expect this to take? i want to do this via my computer so that I can sync as well. Mac OS X (10.6.3)ATI X1900, 12 gigs RAM, Wacom Intuos tablet
