I got the new ipad on June 2012 and I wish to keep the long life of the battery as much as I can. I always and only use the cable that comes with the product and never charge it through computer. Should I:1) wait till baterry is completely empty, pratectly dead and then charge it?2) charge it when it reach 5%-10%.3) turn off the ipad when I charge the battery? Thank you apple support :)...|results-keeping-battery-life-longer-charging-5-10-empty-charge

Just wanting to know. Do I let it go down like 5%-10%?  Then fully charge to 100%? I want the battery to last long! Also if I had photos on my iphone 4s longer then 30 days, how can I sync them to my ipad 3? Thanks...|long-charge-battery

Last night it took 8 hours to go from 3% to 90%... Last week it took over five hours to charge from 10% to 80% - all using the power adapter, not a PC. Would it be quicker if I switched the ipad off altogether when charging? Any ideas? Cheers AlecLondon...|ipad-2-soooo-long-charge

Just recently purchased a new ipad,pretty happy overall save for the fact that charging the **** thing takes almost as long as the usage you get out of it... Somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 hours or there abouts. Since it only runs for about 8 to 10 hours max it seemed a bit extreme. I am using t...|charging-ipad-long-long

Why does the ipad make the same noise when it connects to a charger that doesn't charge it as one that will charge it???I would expect that it would make an unusual noise if plugged into a generic USB charger that does not have enough oomph to charge a pad to alert you - otherwise, you might think the noise is reassuring that you are actually charging it....|ipad-noise-connects-charger-charge-charge

I have just got a new ipad with retina display and I have let the battery fully drain but now it is charging again, it seems to be taking a while to charge, but how long do I charge it for? Do I just charge it until t is full or for longer? I have been told that you are meant to leave it to charge for between 12 and 24 hours the first couple of times you charge it to increase the length of the battery life. Is this correct? ...|charge-ipad-time-charge-18-hours-improve-battery-life-fully

My ipad (3rd Gen) seems to stop charging if it is plugged into my MBP if either the ipad is closed or if the MBP goes to sleep. My iPhone charges whether the MBP is awake or asleep or even if the MBP is closed. There is a screen display that shows the iPhone is charging. The ipad only has the tiny icon at the top of the screen that show it is charging. However, the battery's % charged does not increase if the lid is closed when I am charging the ipad if the lid is closed on the ipad or if the ipad off after pressing the on off button. Is this normal?...|ipad-charge-plugged-macbook-pro-mbp-sleep-iphone-continues-charge
