iPad for Dad, #20: Battery Life

Dad continues to write on his iPad.

If you are still thinking about purchasing an iPad, either for yourself or for a senior parent, read the excellent, and very entertaining, iPad battery tribute over at Paul’s iPad blog. iPad batteries last a long time. Even when a person is working on heavy-duty projects, charging on a daily basis is rarely required.

Best Quote from Paul’s Post

How good is the battery? You find yourself doing funny things when you buy an iPad. I noticed this on day two of my iPad journey where I took her on an obligatory trip to Starbucks when I found myself doing something funny … I stopped looking for the seat next to a plug, I looked for the comfy chair.

My dad continues to write away on his iPad, and rarely does he need to think about the battery. Total convenience! And I have the same experience with mine.

One thought on “iPad for Dad, #20: Battery Life

  1. I can’t thank you enough for this series. I just bought an iPad for my 84-year-old mother-in-law, who is in a wheelchair and has some memory impairment. Although your father sounds as though he’s in significantly better shape, I think this will be really useful for my MIL. Your comments about bringing her along slowly have been very helpful.

    With 5 aging parents between my husband and me (includes a couple of step-parents), I’m finding your blog massively helpful.
