    I have a four month old iPad and it doesn't seem to charge more than 50%. Is there something you would recommend like formatting it or is it a long term issue that cannot be resolved.

    Could be your battery meter needs calibration. Let it run down completely until it turns itself off, then give it a full charge, preferably overnight with it turned off. That should restore the meter to full function.

    The iPad should last around 10 hours on a full charge, unless you are doing some pretty intense gaming with the screen on maximum brightness. If you are consistently getting a lot less than that you may indeed have a dodgy battery.
