    Hey, I searched and I couldn't find a battery life thread for the mini, so I figured I would start one. What is everyone's battery life? On par or better than Retina iPad? I used to own a Nexus 7 and the Mini beats that. My latest battery cycle is attached. It's pretty standard for the mini am I correct?

    Hello & welcome to the forum! :) In reading Apple's description of battery life (HERE), the three current models are described similarly, but I suspect the iPad w/ retina display (different processor & 4x the pixel resolution of the other two) would likely be more 'battery hungry'; BUT, your battery life is much more dependent on 'how' you will use the iPad (e.g. music, surfing, videos, intensive gaming, radios on, screen brightness, etc.) - if you REALLY want to know more specifics about your battery, especially relative to your settings & activities, then I would suggest adding a battery app - I have Battery HD+ - the attached screenshot shows my current status and the hours estimated for certain activities (standby is much longer than reported by the iPad in settings - not sure why?) - hope this helps.

    never paid attention to exactly how long it lasts but It lasts longer than my htc one x phone or any laptop ive ever owned. I am an internet junkie so i spend hours a day on it and I have no complaints.

    I have trouble killing the battery on this thing in a day. I use it for hours and hours with every service I can imagine and the screen timeout turned up to 15 mins. Usually about 2 days of use and 2 hours to charge it up. Awesome, awesome device.
