    iPad 2 battery life reduces faster than iPad first generation. After 1hr the battery life on iPad 2 is at 75%

    I'm at 92% after one hour, from a full charge, so mine is well within the ten hours stated, just like my iPad 1.

    Is your ipad entirely new? It might take a few charges before the battery is working 100%.

    Just wondering if you are using the latest iOS 4.3.1? I've read posts who have said it improved their battery life.

    I've heard the 3G on the iPad 2 kills battery more quickly. Have you tried testing it out with airplane mode and wifi-on?

    I ONLY use 3G as it's faster than my 1.5m DSL wifi, so 3G is on 100% of the time and I still get over ten hours on my iPad 2. At 90% now with about an hour and 15 minutes use of web, email, and forums.

    There is another thread on this topic that explains turning off "ping" will help.

    Wait a minute...won't this kill the Find my iPhone feature if you can't ping it?

    Edit: No...still seems to work so I'm going to turn Ping OFF.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    Yep. Ping is apple's social music network and has nothing to do with the ping, I.e. how much time a network device takes to respond.

    turned off ping myself now too.
    It might be Ping killing my battery when the iPad is out of use
