    I believe you charge it up to 50% or something and then turn it off. I would personally just leave it as it is and turn it off; ie: no special treatment.

    Have fun wherever you are going! If you don't mind me asking, where are you going?:)

    Why not take it along and use it as a iPod?


    or Just turn it off. Leave it on your dresser.

    According to Apple to keep the battery in shape you should completely discharge-charge at least once a month.

    I think skipping two months won't hurt the charge capacity. Oher Li-on manufacturers recommend storing the battery at 40-50% charge for long term storage. Just charge (or drain) to 50% and leave it off.

    Enjoy your trip!
