Just learned that my wife took advantage of a 15% off sale at our local AAFES BX and bought me an 64GB 3G iPad 2 as a birthday gift.

Having seen threads suggesting you need to "condition" the battery on MAC laptops to get the best battery life. Does the iPad also require it's battery to be "conditioned"? If so how is it done?

Thanks in advance

Doesn't really need it, but if you like you can charge it all the way up, then run it all the way down on the first "cycle." After that, you should be good to use it as you please.
