    Hello Guys,


    I am getting my iPad today and I was wondering how many hours should I charge it before I use it?

    or do I hav to charge it, or just take it out of the box and use it?

    Thanx in advance.

    for best battery performance over the life of the device, always give it a full charge first. shouldn't take too long because they come with a pretty full battery.

    15 minutes, every 2 hours. Ya know, that's how Einstein slept!

    I think it's charged up out of the box. Even if it is I would charge it for an hour before use.

    seeing as he got it two days ago, I think this advice is obsolete.

    Well i've had my iPad now for about 2 weeks and I gotta say that the battery life is OUTSTANDING!! I know my came fully charged outta the box and I played with it non-stop for a week and believe it or not, i barely charged the device!! Apple did an excellent job putting the iPad together as far as life of the battery!! I wish the battery life in my 3Gs was the same!! I LOVE MY MYPAD!

    Wow! That's awesome. I charge mine everyday and in fact I always have mine plugged be it at work or at home. If I don't, it wouldn't last me 2 hours. But then again I use my iPad extensively. My usage...



    I should really hide this from AT&T, as they might charge me more
    Tech toys get me high.

    You really shouldn't plug it in all the time, it will affect battery life over time. Just plug it in when it gets low?
