In the past it's been recommended to let rechargeable batteries drain fully or close to fully before recharging to help the battery's lifespan. Other times, it was said to charge frequently in small doses.

Anyone know what, if either, might be the case for the iPad?

Lately, I've had my iPad continually connected to my iMac via usb in the dock. Might that be bad--is it not continually being charged?
