    Okay, I know I posted something like this before, but I can't seem to find it! Anyhow, for some reason my iPad-2 battery appears to lose "optimization" ie. battery life periodically, maybe every three months. When it is optimized my iPad runs for days on one charge, right now it is lucky if it can hold a charge for more than 4-hours. And I am not doing anything really different. I have let the battery completely drain, I have restored things through iTunes. I am at a loss.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Verify that there no apps or features using the battery while the iPad is just sitting there. Turn off anything you don't use like Bluetooth, location services, all that stuff. If its a cellular enabled iPad then make sure that stuff isn't draining the battery. Other than that, not sure. You say it runs fine for a while and then just goes bad?

    Thanks! So I turn off my apps when not used, but didn't know about the location finders! My iPad seems to hold a "normal" charge for several months, meaning a battery charge lasts for up to 12-hours, but then one days just seems to not last as long, less than 2-4 hours, and I can't figure out why, nothing usnuual happened to it, like being dropped or something.

    Again thanks or your help!
