    What should I pay attention to if I'm not going to use the iPad for 1 month or more. I don't want to damage the battery.

    Charge to around 50% and then power it down (hold power button and slide to power off). You won't have any problems.

    You can just turn it off. The charge to 50% wouldn't make any difference. By turn it off I mean hold power button. Don't put it to sleep. Keep it in ideal temperature conditions (as in, do not put it in attic if you live in east coast or something as your iPad will become a nice digital frying pan).

    Fully charge it and leave it on standby... You are our chance to test apple's claim of 30 day standby time!

    Return to your iPad in 30 days and tell us if it still has power! :)
