Share your tips for iPad battery management! Here are mine: Keep it plugged in while you sleep. I developed this nightly ritual for the iPhone and it works just as well for the iPad. Buy a car charger. For me, the order of operations when I get in my car is: start engine, plug in iPhone/iPad, punch in GPS coordinates if necessary, then drive off. Keep a USB charger at your work desk so you can charge it through your computer if necessary. Turn down brightness, especially when reading. The screen is so bright as it is that I find even the average brightness level too bright. I never turn up the brightness above 50% unless I'm looking at high-res photos. Receive new emails manually, or have them pushed 30 minutes. Anything above that is overkill - do you really need the iPad to wake up and check for new emails every 5 minutes?
