    Hi, I just bought the Apple Ipad2 32GB Wifi and I have a quick question. Do I have to drain the battery before I start charging it? I want to put all my stuff on but I am worried I will ruin the battery if it is charging. So do i have to drain it completely until I charge it for the first time?

    you can charge the battery and use it right away. Apple recommends a deep discharge once a month.

    i'd take Apple's recommendation with a grain of salt however, because with current lithium technology, regular deep discharging will shorten the life of the battery.
