    I ran mine today, with the screen on maximum brightness, using a GPS app. After 7 hours the battery was still showing 24%.

    That seems to square with the claims of a 10 hour battery life.

    Have you been draining your battery down to 0% once a month as recommended? This helps to calibrate the battery.

    Well I think I'm getting around 6 hours of use. But I'm out about 13-15 hours of the day and mostly on wifi and Bluetooth as well. Anyone know any external battery packs out there? I've heard of iSound but that thing is a brick!

    That I don't know, Ubu. Good question, but I guess you would have to if you're draining it to 0% like that on a daily basis.

    Yea i am totally into that situation. I am a currency trader with this brand new ipad as well as a gamer like others. For me, ipad games are cute. I think that's the main reason on how the addictions appeared..LOL
