    Hi friends,

    I'm travelling for 50 days and am NOT going to carry my IPad (2018 model).

    Could you please suggest in what state do I need to keep my Ipad for those 50 days I'm not using it. My concern is that if I switch it OFF, its battery might dry?

    Please advise, thanks!!

    Charge it to about 80% and turn it off. Battery drain over 50 days shouldn't be much.

    This is on the money.

    Powered down with the battery between 60-80%

    As above and store it in a climate controlled environment. Not a garage, attic, car, &c.

    Make sure it’s at room temperature.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    I'm going to charge it upto 60-80% , switch it OFF and then keep it at the room temperature.

    After 50 days, please pop back into this thread and let us know how much battery was left. :)

    Also, if relevant, store the pencil separately.
