    Just got an iPad. Finding myself using it way more than my laptop. Maybe it's just the initial period of owning one but maybe it'll last. In the meantime how do you suggest I tuck it away in between the times I actually use it? Battery at 50% then plug it in when I do use it? Full charge? No charge? I'd like to prolong the life of the battery as much as possible.

    The procedure to store Lithium Ion batteries is at 40-60% charge to retain maximum charge capacity. When you wish to use it again, it is advised to charge to full 100% before using it again.
