    I did a quick search and didn't really find what I was looking for. (owner experience) Just curious if the majority are happy with they're battery life? I've mostly been connected via wifi and seem to be getting 5 to 7 hours on a full charge. No gaming. Mostly surfing and reading online. (email, news and weather, etc)

    Do you have the screen brightness turned up high? That will drink your battery like
    Juice.

    Auto-Brightness enabled and slider just a little past halfway.

    Mine lasts about 15 hrs I think, I usually charge it once or twice a week, nut then I just have the wifi model only.

    I get between 11 to 13hrs with screen brightness at approx 40% with Bluetooth and 3G switched off. Thats a mix of watching live TV, web browsing and viewing movies. No real issues with battery life here.
    It does noticeably go down much quicker if I have 3G enabled, Bluetooth seems to have minimal effect though.

    Reducing your screen brightness can make a big difference.

    I usually get well over 10 hours doing internet surfing and light video. If I use my MLB at Bat to watch games it goes down significantly faster though.

    10-12 hours are the norm for me.

    Is everyone just keeping track of usage by watching the clock or is there a timer app out there somewhere smart enough to only count when the iPad is "not" in sleep mode?
