initial charge of ipad mini

Just wondering if I need to initially charge this a certain way.
Just start using it till the battery goes all the way down ( on the initial 1st use let the batt. go all the way down to ensure longer life for battery, etc) ?

Or it dosent matter, ?
Thanks

No special treatment is required for the battery. Simply charge it when ever you are not using it. Apple does recommend running your devices through 1 full cycle, 100% charge to fully run down, at least once a month to keep the battery meter calibrated. The procedure also helps keep the batteries electrons moving if it is regularly connected to a charger.

Apple has a great resource for battery information. Apple - Batteries - iPad
