I have seen many discussions regarding Lithium-Ion batteries but am not yet sure whether I should keep my new iPad 2 plugged in to the power outlet whenever I can conveniently do so?  As long as I deplete the battery completely once a month as suggested at, having the power adapater plugged in would reduce the overall number of charge cycles and thereby enhance the life of the battery, or?


Would it be better to unplug it when it is fully charged in order to not overheat/overcharge the iPad?


Thanks for any advice!



iPad 2, iOS 4.3.2
