    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.

    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

    You should also turn off WiFi and 3G (if you have it) when not using your iPad - and power it down completely overnight, or if you don't plan to use it for several hours. That's the advice from Apple, which has worked very well for me.

    I have read that in the first couple of charges you should run the battery down. The person complaining about battery life was charging it at 56%. You still have a lot of time left. Let it run down then fully charge it. Plus kill all the apps you have open.

    Forgive my dimness, but what do you mean when you say turn PING off?
    Please be basic.
    Thanks in advance for your understanding!
