    I did a couple charge/discharge cycles when I first bought my iPad but that's about it. However, I've read from a couple posts on this forum that this practice isn't even necessary any more with the advancements of recent battery technology. So, I guess it's up to you.

    You might want to discharge it once a month as Apple suggests to keep the battery meter calibrated, but don't make it a practice to discharge the battery fully. You'll only shorten their lifespans.
