Hi, everyone,

I had the New iPad for a little more than one month.

During the past month, I had frequently let the iPad go through a charge cycle, which is about 3 times a week.

Then I read about (from wikipedia, and battery university and other sites) that this is not good for the new iPad's battery, and it's better to keep the battery level at about 5% and under 80% to avoid deep-discharging and over-charging.

Now everytime when I charge the battery to 80%, it will appear to be 83% or 84% shortly after I unplugged.


Don't know if I already damaged the battery or not. Does anyone know if there is a way or an APP to test the iPad's battery status?

And should I go through a charge-cycle as mentioned by the offical site (http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipad.html) or simply do a full charge like they said in the how to (http://thehowto.wikidot.com/prolong-battery-lifespan-for-ipad) ?


Any response will be appreciated.

And thanks in advance, guys.

iPad, iOS 5.1.1
