    I almost did that for something else-but opted out. I'm sure it takes a while for it to complete!

    Let us know how your battery performance is after you do it. I just started using mine, after pulling it off the charger at 5:45 pm. I'll be mindful of my battery performance after fully draining it to 0.

    LOL--Thanks, I like that..."Skinny!"

    When I posted to Mollysmom--I had reported the reset from settings. I had thought that I had read that it may be one of the options. Since than, I realized that this was more for other issues seen for the new ipad, such as the wifi connection etc.

    The reset - I recommended for Molly was pressing the power button and home button at the same time.

    Also-have you let your battery drain down to 0% once a month to help to re-calibrate your battery? See this link: Battery Question

    iOS 5.1 addreses battery-bug issues. It would be more clearer to have the model of iPad you have (iPad1, 2, 3). But you should always have your iPad have 1 full battery cycle a month (100% to 0%). Somethings such as gaming and watching video will drain the battery quicker. If you have a 3G/LTE model, that will surely drain the battery more as it will be connected to the network.

    I bought my iPad2 on the 3rd of March(jus last month) n I was quite impressed with its long battery life...I mean I could literally b on it the whole day and by the time i turn it off I'd only have it at 50%.AT the time it ran on OS 5.0.1,but since updating to OS 5.1 the battery drain has increased exponentially,at-least 50% more than at first.Its extremely disappointing to have to be subject to this,especially as a new iPad owner.So yes I do believe that there is a genuine problem that needs to be fixed You aren't the only one....

Maybe I did, I do not know--however, I did do the reset as some members mentioned, and it seemed to go back to the normal battery life I was used to prior to the update. I used it quite a bit Sunday-most of the day, Monday night and Tuesday night. On Wednesday, the battery was down to 7%. So I figured I would drain it to 0% since I had not done so this last month. Sure did take a lot of time to drain it down. In fact it took about 4 hours to drain my battery from 7% to 0% today, while playing music with the screen off.

    I was very surprised about how long 7% goes with this use. I am sure, if was surfing the web or playing a movie-the battery would have drained quicker...though not sure.
    Thank you so much ski...tried the reset and it worked beautifully.Frustration gone....😂😂😂....I've been using my iPad since 11am till now 2326hours n it's only at 71%.back to normal.
    Clearly whatever issue it had has been resolved...I also let it run a full cycle and recharged it to 100% last night so that could be a contributing factor.
    If I may suggest,since this method worked for my ipad2,that people with a similar battery drain issue due to the updated firmware try this before looking for more complex solutions.
    Though the reason as to why it happen still remains a mystery to me,I'm relieved it wasn't permanent.

    Hi kagiso-so glad to hear that this helped you! Wow-did you mean 2326 hour? My guess not, yes? However, whatever your usage is, at least it is better than before!

    I'd say battery usage in my new iPad is similar to my iPad 1
