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.

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
well on the back of my ipad the silver part, the bottom right and bottom left feels a bit heavier then the top right and left. Can anyone check their ipad and tell me if this is normal? or is the battery swelling up
My battery life has gotten shorter and shorter over time. I've pretty much foliowed all of the basics, as explained in that post here re: battery management, draining fully once a montn then fully charging, turning Bluetooth, WiFi and location services off, brightness down, etc. I'd guess I'm getting 5 hours full operating time; it also seems to take less time to charge. This device always seemed to be a little shy of the advertised 10 hours, but it didn't matter that it might be only 8 or 9. But now it has to be addressed.
Any other ideas? Have seen a mix of posts about this subject. May need to replace the battery or...the entire device?

I have just bought my brand new iPad and as I was leaving the PC World store the tech guy told me that I should charge the unit for TEN HOURS before even turning it on.
I know this used to be common practice with batteries in years gone by but in this age of non-memory Lithium Ion batteries is it really necessary to do that?Did you all charge yours up for that period of time before getting stuck into it?
For proper reporting of the batteryï¿½s state of charge, be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).How long to let the ipad sit without charging, then charge it up again? Hours?
Anybody have the battery doctor app to monitor their battery? I ran my iPad down to 1% when it shut off. I then plugged in, opened battery doctor app and started charging. At first it said 5 1/2 hours to full charge then when it got to 20% the time remaining to full charge changed to 7 1/2 hours. Weird.
I have a problem with my iPad 1: The battery status was low at 5% when I was surfing the net so I shut it down. Came to it the next day to charge it up and the Pad is not reacting at all. No battery charging sign, no "plip" when I connect it via the charger or USB on the computer. I have checked all the obvious stuff such as cleanliness of all the connectors, function of the the wall charger etc. I changed the USB/power cable and nothing has worked. I have also tried to reset it by simultaneously pressing the start and home buttons. The pad still isn't switching on. Before this fault the battery was excellent: held its charge really well.
I have read all the apple pages on this (why they have to be in 3 documents is beyond me) and still can not determine WHEN it is best to charge? I have let my power run to 0 before recharging. This is how my camera batteries work best. So I am doing FULL charges, not PARTIAL charges.Also, when large battery pic says 100% charged, top right small battery pic says 98% instead of 100, twice now. Information:Ipad 3G & 13.3 MacPro
As I understand it, the iPad battery cannot be removed and replaced once it has reached the end of it's life. I recall that in some electronic devices(cell phones), the useful battery life can be extended by completely discharging and recharging one or more times. is this useful for the iPad battery?
Couldn't think of a better title, but last night I charged my ipad to 100%, used it for about 5 minutes(mail/safari) then left it alone till this morning. When I just went to switch it on it was completely flat showing me the red empty battery symbol. Never had that happen before, could it be a problem?
I will be traveling to Australia and China this summer with my iPad 3g. Both flights are 20 +/- hours. I am hoping to purchase a backup battery pack for the iPad. I have a Morphie pack for my iPhone but it is not compatible with the iPad.
Does anyone know of a backup battery pack that will work with the iPad?
I have my iPad connected to my MBP to sync and I see that it has my name on it. I'm going to give this one to my husband and then I'll get the new one that should be here today. Is there a way to change the name to my husband's name?
