    Hi Everyone,
    I have an iPad 2 which I absolutely love. It works fine, but I was wondering if there was a way to check how many charge cycles my device has gone through. I know the laptops keep track, but are there any apps that you give you this information? I am a little skeptical about 3rd party apps, though.

    Thanks
    Sarah

    I use this app on my Mac and it tells me how many charge cycles are on my battery. I also have an iPad 2 since mid 2012 and I use it everyday and last time I checked I had less than 140 charge cycles

    Thank you so much. I want to give this a try, but I have a windows PC, and was wondering how I would be able to view the cycles on my ipad 2. Would I plug it in to my USB port? What would I click on to access that info? Thank you.

    You run the program then hookup your iPad to the PC. You highlight your device and there should be a box or tab for "more information". I don't have the PC version so I don't know if it's under some other setting or menu. It will show battery count cycles.
