    How much battery life does your iPad drain when you leave it overnight? When I went to bed, I unplugged it from the charger and it was at 100%, and it lost about 10% of charge in around 12 hours in standby mode.
    I wasn't really tracking the battery life before, but I'd like to know if anyone else has any idea if this is normal.

    If you have it set to check for emails often that will drain your battery but it will drain maybe 1/2 to one percent over a 12 hour period. So something isn't right. That isn't normal.

    That's what I thought. I remember having to charge it just once every week to 10 days, and now it's always on the verge of dying.
    Thanks.

    You may want to try a reset by holding the home and sleep buttons down until the Apple logo comes up (about ten seconds) and then releasing them. Clears the RAM among other things.

    I tried resetting, and restored it to factory settings a couple times over the last few weeks, but nothing seemed to change.
    Finally went down to the genius bar right after I posted here, and they just swapped mine out for a new piece. Can't say I'm disappointed!

    10% for the night seems too much.
