    I would say it depends on usage but I usually go a few days before I charge. I normally wait till it gets down below 10% before I charge unless I know I am going to be using it a lot the next day and then I will make sure it's charged

    Every other day. I let it down get to 1% before I charge.

    I always keep mine topped off, the iPad doesn't charge quick, so I will charge it every chance I get.

    I usually go two or three days unless I use it alot and then I may charge it daily.

    I charge mine daily. Sometimes 8 hours a day of usage.

    I was going to post something similar. I charge it when it needs to be charged.

    It's as if nobody here ever used a rechargeable device before the iPad came out.

    Pretty much nightly. I play music all day at work and I am occasionally on twitter and surfing the web. When I get home I'm on it constantly until bed so although it doesnt get too low I still charge it.

    Watch out for multitasking apps running in the background. Double-tapping on the home button and closing apps running in the background can increase battery life.

    Which Law & Order? Vincent D'Onofrio's smoldering intensity on "L&O: Criminal Intent" drains the battery excessively.

    Every night. I use it is an alarm clock, so I can't have it run out of charge in the middle of the night. Also, I want it to have a full charge when I use it the next day. Works for me...

    While I sleep.

    I charge while I sleep. That way I never run out of power.

    I have the 64 3G WIFI, use it at least two hours daily and put it on the charger about every 3 days or more.

    Maybe it's because it's late, but I actually laughed out loud at that.

    I charge mine 1-2 times per week, depending on my usage. It really does seem like the battery lasts forever.

    Use it daily for work and personal. Plug it in every night never worry about it running out of battery. Its a Lithium battery, it doesn't have a "memory" so it doesn't matter what level it's at when you charge.
