    So apparently Apple reccomends you remove any cases before you charge your iPad so it can properly dissipate heat and not cause any damage to it. Problem is, I want to use an OtterBox defender case. Probably the thickest, craziest case out there. Does anyone know if it would be a wise move to use it or is it really not necessary to remove the case every time I charge it? I don't want to damage it.

    You don't need to remove the case every time you charge it'll be just fine with it on.

    What's the point of getting a sleek thin device only to put a huge ugly case on it?

    I didn't buy it because it is a sleek thin device and number two I want to provide protection to it. Use the otterbox on my iPhone and LOVE it.

    I think this is just a disclaimer to cover them in case something does happen to your device should it heat up while in a case. I personally would still charge it in a case unless I noticed it feeling warm, or placed my hand on the screen and could feel warmth coming through.

    How many iOS devices are out there with covers or cases on them? And how many of those users actually take them out of those cases to charge them?

    This is just Apple lawyers putting a line out there to cover their butts in case your iPad gets too warm & burns your house down, they can blame the case.
