that sounds logical.From what I've read Apple suggest draining to depletion once a month to keep the iPad in calibration, I could be wrong but don't believe so. You say you haven't had it for a full month yet, how many times have you totally depleted the battery? If you are continually discharging the iPad every time you use it perhaps that's the problem, the battery may not be completing a proper power cycle. As far as I'm aware with the latest batteries it's better to top them up rather than run them down completely. Batteries from years gone by needed to be totally discharged all the time to reset their "memory" lithium-ion batteries don't need this "memory" reset.Originally Posted by NLAlstonMy 1st gen IPad (WiFi, 32GB), doesn't get even close to the stated 10hrs of battery life. I have followed the recommended guidelines of waiting until battery is fully depleted, before charging, but still get no more than about five hours of usage from my unit. I don't believe I have had this thing for a full month yet, but long enough (I think) for the battery to have developed a healthy charging cycle.
Im just trying to help so please don't flame me if I'm wrong. If I am wrong I'm sure someone here will correct me.
