    First the display brightness, push notifications and then the wifi radio.

    Running video, especially streaming, is probably the most taxing.

    But you could do this for half the day on the iPad and still have enough battery to watch another movie, if you start with a full charge.

    I have found playing games drains the battery faster than anything else I do on the iPad. I guess that is to be expected though.

    Hmm, you are probably right. I didn't think of games.

    It would depend on the kind of game of course. I doubt Suduko or similar games are any worse than reading a book. An FPS should be the worst.

    I've been on this app for about 20-30 minutes, my 16GB iPad still hasn't moved from 100%.

    For me the X-plane 9 app drains battery very fast.The second game that drains my battery very fast is Modern combat 2 in Multiplayer mode.Still much better than my HP laptop which drains the battery in 45 min.:))
