Is it harmful to my iPad or the life of its battery if I leave

Resolved Question:

Is it harmful to my iPad or the life of its battery if I leave it "on charge" all the time OR is it more beneficial to the iPad and the battery if I take it "off charge" once in a while. Thanks! Apple fan to the END because I'm smart - I just don't know a lot about batteries!

Hi MaryJane. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question.

The iPad, iPhone, iPod, Macs and most of all latest devices have the built-in over charge protection installed on them. That means if they are charged 100%, the charging circuits will be turned off. Then they will continue to charge only if the battery charged discharging.

All modern devices have lithium battery installed on them. So to answer to your question, Nope, it is not harmful to your iPad or to the battery if you leave it plugged.

But Apple recommends that once a month you can let the battery run down all the way from 100% to 10% or lower to calibrate the battery indicator.

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best Regards,
Ashik

Thank you very much, Ashik! I have much respect for Apple Inc. employees. I know much is expected from you and I KNOW you work very hard.


My beloved daughter, Leigh, worked in Cupertino for many years. She took great pride in being a member of The Apple Team and LOVED her job. But, she worked very hard - to the detriment of her health. Harsh physical therapy subsequent to simple carpal tunnel surgery led to severe nerve damage which ultimately led to her death. She was only 39 years old. I miss her very much.


Again, thank you for your help. I wish for you a happy, HEALTHY life and much success in your professional life.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
