    Haven't upgraded on iPad but the battery life is definitely improved on my iPhone 4.

    Hi D1A...

    I am going to move this to General Discussion. You have currently posted in the iPad Poll section, where you probably won't get as much attention. :D

    Also, I have not experienced any battery issues since I have updated to 5.1. I did it on Friday afternoon--and it is seems consistent. Hope that helps.

    Yep, I definitely have the idea that I need to recharge more often after updating to 5.1

    I never had a problem with charging or battery life before the 5.1 update but so far it hasn't affected anything negatively. Actually, it seems the same to me.

    No problem for me either...I even wondered if it was a little better since the upgrade but that might just be wishful thinking!

    No discernible battery diff on iPad 1, iPad 2, iPhone 4S or iPod touch 4 since upgrade to iOS 5.

    I actually upgraded to 5.1 because it was supposed to give better battery life. Now the charge seems to drop like a stone, quite the converse of what I was expecting.

    Haven't noticed anything major. Think this iPF app beats up the battery though haha

    My battery about an hour ago was around 75%, now check it out. Although I did upgrade OTA

    Well I charged my iPad last night, began using it about 11:30 am. Have been on this site and a few others off and on today-I am now at 77%. So with all this talk about recent battery drainage since the recent update, I will pay more attention.

    Ya know, maybe Im just watching closer but I do feel its a little worse than before. I read the newspaper on my iPad every morning and start out at 100%. After about 15-20 minutes and a bowl of cereal, Its usually still at 100% still or 99% at the worst. Got to 98% this morning. Just a browser open, nothing else. I have all of the known features turned off/disabled that I dont use too so Im already in battery-save mode. It also seemed to drain faster yesterday than before although the kids were gaming on it for a good chunk of the day. Probably not a big deal, but I wonder if the 5.1 update turned something on or enabled something?

    Hmmm....????
