    Last longer now that I had my iPad 2 almost two months. I still have 4.3 iOS on it and somehow the battery drainage stopped happening. Anyone having the same experience?

    Have you started charging the ipad with a 10W wall charger? I noticed mine last considerably longer compared to when I'm charging it using a usb cable connected to a pc/laptop.

    Yes, big difference when charging via USB. I put in on charge overnight and in the morning was only 41% charged. Much better when charging with AC.

    The iPad only charges at normal speed when it is connected to the wall charger it came with. The iPad charger supplies 10W(5V, 2A), where as the laptop USB slot only supply ~0.5A, so charging the iPad via laptop can be really slow.

    iPod and iPhone charges are also slow in comparison.

    This is a suggestion from Dontunderstandmyipad by the way!

    I updated my pc drivers with Asus AI charger, improves the USB output power, iPhone charges faster now as well. There also work on my Dell Precision and Toshiba Satellite.
