    Well after updating to iOS5 on my ipad 2 I have found that my battery life is fantastic and lasting even longer then before. Has anyone else found this. I have been watching tv on it playing games on browsing the Internet etc since 7pm when it was fully charged and it's now 01.03am and I still have 75% battery life so that's 6 hours of usage and still loads of battery life left. How is every else finding there battery life since the update. I am very pleased so far.

    Mine seems to have improved too. Was good before. Haven't used iPad much since Wed., but will run it tonight and see how it goes, Sue.

    I find battery life to be largely subjective due to the fact that it can be drained more or less by various apps or if you use apps that are constantly pinging for location. Some days I get well over 10 hours. Other days I barely get through the day without having to throw it on the charger.

    I was told at Apple Store in Liverpool that there would be a considerable improvement in the life of the battery. My iPad has been on with moderate use for over six hours and is at 96% Quite incredible. How can this be? Gonna watch some video and then leave on TV mode 'till morning rise time...5 hours from now.

    Six hours and only used 4%!?!?!??! That doesn't seem possible. Maybe it needs to be calibrated? My battery life definitely seems better, but not THAT good!

    Just so you know the iPad has a reported standby time or sleep time. That is having the iPad do nothing and be in sleep mode not plugged for about a month. So no it does not surprise me that you only used 4% of your battery while you sleeper over night.

    What you need to do is play a game like tiger woods golf (which I think you can get free right now) and see what your battery life is then. You should see that it drains it pretty fast.

    I posted about this a few days ago, because yes, my battery life has greatly improved. It ran for about six hours after the upgrade, and dropped from only slightly from 100%. Then it was in sleep mode over night, and was in constant use from the early morning until bed time... It ended the day on 23%... Approximately 22 hours! Not all me, I hasten to add, but my kids as well, gaming, music, YouTube... I couldn't believe it!

    Wow, that is really great. Curious if you have any notifications set and anything else that is running in the background.
