    I have my new iPad (64, wifi and 4G) since Friday, I have charged it almost every day. It was showing 100% yesterday when I went out to Starbucks and connected to their wifi to get my emails and searched the web for around 20 min, I do not have ATT subscription yet, I can only use it on wifi, however after 1.30-2 hours of working on it mainly getting and replying to emails (heavy emails), plus downloading NoteShelf that took a while to download, the battery showed like 50% after 2 hours, I'm surprised, I even did not view videos or played games and so on, I did work on Noteshelf for 20 min or so trying to get to see how it works.
    I'm not sure what is going on, how come they say battery life is 9-10 hours, I can't see this happening to my iPad, can you please post what is your battery life and what things drain the battery fast?
    I tend to keep the screen brightness high as I have bad eyes and hate dark stuff, my iPhone, Mac pro and now iPad all set to medium to high brightness, I feel depressed with lower light, LOL :)

    Strange. I do not have this problem at all. In fact I decided to do a full battery cycle on my new iPad and it took for ever for it to drain. I did a normal days use with it then left my slingbox app running and it still wasn't dead by morning.

    Strength to listen, I never face this problem yet now with my ipad battery. It causes perhaps your battery's life over or it affected with some interruptions. I charged my ipad when it need for charging, avoid to charge it in the off mode.

    I am having this exact same problem. My battery drains to 50% in just 2.5 hours. I have an iPad 2 as well, and it lasts twice as long as my new iPad when I do the same kinds of things on it. I am at an Apple Store right now trying to get this resolved. I will report on the results.

    This issue is discussed in the iPad 3 forum. I am going to close this thread instead of adding it to the several others there.
