    I upgraded 4 Apple devices to 5.0.1 tonight and I noticed a major improvement in my IPad battery consumption.

    I am sill losing 25% every 8 hours even though my ipad2 is locked. I've tried what some of you suggested (turning off Bluetooth, deleted some apps I recently bought) but still no luck. Any other ideas? Or is there another thread I didn't notice?

    I figured Apple would get to this update pretty quickly. I just updated my iP4S, so my iPad 1 is next. My iPad hasn't seen too many issues with battery life, but my new 4S had a difference from my iP4 for sure, which I'm hoping the update really does then fix. And LOL-humor is always enjoyed!

    I watched two solid hours of video streamed via wifi on our home network last night after I upgraded to 5.0.1 and the battery meter went from 55% to 49% (Ipad 2).

    How many apps are there running in the background? It is always a good idea to close all apps and did you reset your device after the upgrade? I always keep my brightness to about 25percent.

    The location services bug is what was supposed to be fixed, but I still run down faster if I have locations on.

    Hey guys, no problems here on iOS 5.0.1 but just remember that you should run your battery fully down and recharge once in a while to allow it to re-calibrate itself. If you haven't done this then it may be worth doing it now just to check that there is a problem with battery usage and it's not just the battery being out of calibration.
