    So you're not getting the 10 hours?

    There are no app's but plenty you can do...

    Do you ever run the battery right done to zero? You need to do that occasionally to let the iPad battery monitor calibrate itself, else it tends to report erroneous battery levels.

    Keep the LCD brightness down.

    Turn off 3G or WiFi if you're not using them.

    When the iPad is not in use for a while turn off rather than putting it to sleep.

    I'm using the 'smart cover' also, which puts the iPad into 'sleep mode' when closed; this function is magnetically activated and can be duplicated w/ a magnetic strip if placed in the right position.

    BTW, if desired, this function can be disabled in the Settings>General area -

    Yes - as the previous poster suggested - it simply puts it to Sleep - but it doesn't consume too much power then, so it's more likely that there's another issue at play here.

    Try running the battery down to zero to see if the re-calibration helps.

    The iPad will automatically turn off when the battery level reaches a low level, so you can simply leave it turned on, if you're not using it.

    As giradman suggested, it simply puts the iPad to sleep - it does not turn it off.
