    You need to tell us what Cydia applications you have installed. The jailbreak itself does NOTHING to the battery consumption. It is ALWAYS a symptom of something you have installed which is usually not compatible with the iPad. You need to list out what you have installed and we will see if we can help. OK?

    Not sure if this will help...

    A month or 2 back I JB'ed my mates iPhone 4 and he experienced the same issue... The battery was draining super fast.

    I took the phone home with me and started sifting through endless amount of complaints about this and finally came to a solution... It appears that after the JB, if you have an exchange mail account added on with the options to sync email, contacts and calendar..... The contacts option is the issue. All I had to do was deactivate the contacts sync and tadaa... Battery stopped draining like crazy.

    Not sure if it may the same issue on the iPad... Hope it helps.

    Jailbreak does nothing but open up root access and install Cydia. :)

    Safari Download Plugin is built for iOS 2.0 AFAIK! Try getting rid of that...

    Ok I have removed it, hopefully this will slow things down. Also the whole iPad has just switched off on me and I can only see the silver apple symbol so I have had to use the reset method a few times :-s

    I'll keep u posted

    Click settings,
    click mail / contact / calendars
    Click on your email account

    You will see

    Email
    Contact
    Calendar

    If contact is switched on, click it to toggle off

    Hope it helps.

    I have a jail broken iPhone 4 with an Exchange account with sync enabled and I don't have this problem at all.
