Some days, six or eight hours just isn’t enough. I end up having to plug my iPad in to a brick in the PM (accompanied by foul incantations) so I can soldier on.
Now I’ve adapted.
I got an extension cord and my iPad/USB connector and plugged in next to the chair where I always spend the first hours of the day. When I’m done dealing with emails and favorite sites, I can unplug iPad and move around as needed—and not have to stop for an emergency charge in late afternoon.
Especially helpful if I actually want to use iPad away from home in the PM. I won’t have to plan on dragging along the brick.
And if I want to use iPad outside in the morning, when the weather is nice, I can plug it into the power brick and use it in the backyard.
Sometimes changing things is as simple as merely changing the order of things.
