I just plug it in at night, but once a month or so run through a full cycle. Also, if I am driving and using the GPS or something along those lines I may plug it in.

I'm dock happy. It's not a matter of looking at percentages. Usually when not in use, it sits on dock. It also pulls double duty displaying photos.
Similar with iphone, clock dock at night, hooked to PC at work via dock, sits in TomTom mount during driving, so battery life isn't really a problem.
I'm not worried about ruining batteries and all that. These products have a year or two year life at max for me.

Wall charging. Use my iPhone and my iPad charger. iPhone charger is slower. iPad charger is faster than the iPhone charger.Alex Nguyen

My iPad2 is a WiFi version. I like how when it goes to sleep the battery use is nil and it wakes up immediately. I charge it when it goes below 50% or so. A lot depends on where I am going and what I will be doing the next day or so. I did buy a 2 amp car USB charger so it can be charged as I drive, but I have never had to use it. At work it is on battery and I use it to play music and surf the net during lunch breaks. I use the hotspot on my android phone on Verizon for that. One reason I returned the Xoom I had and ordered this iPad2 64gb device is the battery engineering. Apple has worked out a balance of features and hardware design to achieve a really good product.
As I see it, Microsoft is the big loser here. They still don't have good portable device operating systems.

I charge at a different percentage every time. Sometimes I top it off when it's at 85%, other times I wait until it's at 2%. I don't have a routine. I basically charge whenever I think about it and if I haven't thought about it in awhile, it gets charged when it dies (probably once a month).
