Ipad 2 losing charge too quickly
Ipad 2 charging
My ipad is suddenly losing charge very quickly
The settings app will give you the actual time used and dormant since last charge. Settings/general/usage will display the times. Mine easily does 9-10 hours between charges. Of course it depends on how much work the processor has to do. Simply displaying photos or reading an ebook takes little power whereas Internet usage takes much more.

Are you jailbroken? If you are, you may have an incompatible tweak installed.
I've merged the two threads you started to ask about why your iPad 2 is losing charge so quickly. Besides fragmenting the conversation and making it hard to follow, having more than one thread on the same topic is against our rules. http://www.ipadforums.net/forum-rules-help-info/2119-forum-rules-everybody-please-read.html
It's sometimes a bit irritating when an alleged problem is highlighted and someone then points out how great their situation is, but gotta do it! Our iPad 2s have gotten over 20 hours after mainly reading and some Internet browsing and charging at 10 or 15 percent. How sweet is that...
We do keep apps closed so there's minimized battery drag. The iPad 2 is just a very pleasing device!
Since the problem user has given no information, perhaps trying a few things to extend battery time would help. Hopefully it's not a defective unit.
Are you using Microsoft Exchange on your device?
Have you added any new Apps lately? Some use a lot of power (data too sometimes).
