    Quick question, just got my iPad and I wondered if I need to give it the old 24 hour first charge? Any advice?

    No need to do it. If you read the instructions of the iPad (or any other kind of mobile device w/ battery) you won't find that "advice" anymore.

    Battery packs are getting more and more evolved, so, no need to "push" de first charge like we did a few years back.
    In fact, it's advised to avoid limit values (above 95% or below 5%) in order to preserve battery life span.
