    To me, it feels like it's draining too fast. I could be wrong, though. Anyway, here it is.

    Backlight: All the way down
    Bluetooth: Off
    Push Notifications: On
    Email: Off
    Wifi: On

    Takes me about 7 to 15 minutes to read an issue. Anytime it's not in use, it's in sleep mode. I never turn it completely off.

    You should've tried an Android tablet before complaining :p
    Anyway, I suppose that it's ok as you've got your Wi-Fi on all the time

    I don't think he was complaining about it, he was just asking if it was a normal battery usage.

    Being a new ipad owner myself it did not seem to be draining the battery abnormal.

    You can download an app called boost magic, it should still be free. I'm convinced it's good, it seems to charge better when this app is on and it also breaks it down into how many hours:mins you have left on wifi, 3G, gaming, standby, music and movies etc. it should help you monitor it a bit better. I'm on mine nearly all day and only charge it when it needs too. I bought it to a wedding recently and the kids were playing on it for about two hours, my battery started at 70% and it was around 55% after that so it should last a while just depends how you use it really.
