    It will help if you tell us what you are doing for those three hours. Also, what is your screen brightness set at?

    Sounds like you have Bluetooth, wifi and 3G all enabled. You probably have a lot of pps open in the background as well. Does this sound right?

    I've found that I can leave the new iPad in standby mode for over a day without it draining more than 1% if I turn airplane mode on.

    Try that and if it keeps draining then I would say you have a bad battery.
