    I felt that it's dropping faster than iPad 2
    It came with 90% at 11am, then I was using it continuously till 1:30 pm, It was 59% at 1:30pm
    Battery dropped 31% in 2:30 hrs is it normal? I just downloaded apps and sync music from iTunes by cable, then I was just playing around with it
    Note-- I have 32gb wifi only model No 4g

    Just got mine going. I plan on using it for a while then recharging to see. May need to do a full battery cycle some time soon...

    My iPad power seems to be dropping about 5% per hour an hour and a half of that was LTE

    Definitely dropping faster here.

    Charged it to 100% once I got it home, then used it sporadically off the charger. Now, only an hour or so of being completely off charge, it's down to 55%.

    I've only use my 4G the LTE maybe 10 or 15 minutes of the time versus time I've been on my home Wi-Fi
    But I have been downloading nothing but videos off of YouTube and streaming content from Netflix

    Sent from my new iPad using the dictation assistant

    Sorry I'm still trying to train my dictation assistant to recognize my speech patterns

    Last post should have said that I'm using my 4G LTE maybe 10 to 15 minutes the rest of the time I have been on my Wi-Fi

    For my location here in Charlotte North Carolina my AT&T LTE download speeds are averaging 20 Mb second Down and 3 to 7 meg upload

    I'm wondering if the battery needs time to calibrate?

    I have the same issue. My 2 year old 1st generation iPad has better battery life than new iPad 3. I found that Setting Time Zone (Settings -> Location Services -> System Services) keeps seeking location information. I haven't tested this yet but this could be the cause.

    Update: I've already calibrated the battery once but I see no difference.

    my battery seems to run down faster and also take longer to charge up. the new iPad needs a higher powered charger.

    I've noticed the opposite my iPad one used to charge very quickly and also ran down very quickly. My iPad 3 takes a long time to charge, longer than the iPad 1, but it also takes the forever to run down, the battery life is superb
