    It will void your warranty. In my opinion, yes it will make it slower. The only device I ever jailbreak is my iPod Touch 2g because I want all the features the newer ones have. I do not advise jailbreaking your iPad because it already does pretty much everything you could want it to. I could go into technical detail of all the stuff that jailbreaks add to your device, but it would be confusing. It does add stuff, and it does make it more sluggish.

    Not in my experience. I successfully ran an iPad1 jail broken for about a year with no noticeable slowdown or battery problems. The only reason I don't still have it jail broken is that I put iOS 5.1 on it and gave it to my sister (because I have the new iPad ).

    I also am running an iPhone 4S that has been jail broken (iOS 5.0.1) since the jail break was released. Again, I have not noticed any slowdowns or battery issues. But, then again, you could get battery drain if you run tweaks (like a weather app that constantly refreshes) that ask more of the battery or processor. But, it would be your decision to accept that draining - it doesn't happen normally. As far as I can tell, my phone is no slower than it was when it was stock. Of course, this is one person's anecdote - so it doesn't make it ironclad. But, I've never had a jail break issue that I did not cause myself. Given the opportunity, I'll choose jail break every time.

    And yes, having a jail broken iDevice will void your warranty - but ONLY if you attempt to get help from Apple with the jail break installed. If you restore the iDevice to stock, all traces of the jail break will be gone. Then, they'll never know the iDevice was jail broken. Restoring to stock is a very simple process...

    Hope this helps and clarifies.

    P.S. And, since you're asking questions about jail breaking, I'm going to move this post over to the Hacking section of this forum. There (here?), others with jail break experience can see it and chime in...

    Yes, it can affect, but it'll be Your choice - you can use or not performance and battery reducing tweaks (se the post above) , but also there is such tweak as Dimmer - you can reduce battery drain by reducing screen brightness - especially while reading a lot in the evening, like me.
    So on the other hand I can say that jailbreak itself do not affect neither performance nor battery life, but it allows You to install some tweaks and apps, that does.
