    Hello Mini Fellow Users,

    I've noticed a sudden drop of battery efficiency. I don't know why but once the battery reaches 100% and the charger is unplugged its level drops from 99% to 90% in a very short time, even without using the Ipad and leaving it in the standbye mode! If used, it goes down even faster (which normally would be natural but a month or two ago it wasn't like that)

    What do you think?

    Thanks

    A few things to try, maybe they will help:

    Reduce screen brightness, turn off bluetooth, disable location services, run a complete power cycle (let it drop to 0° before charging).

    Hi JA, thanks for your advice. I've kept screen brightness at 40-50% since the day I got the Ipad. As for bluetooth and location services I never turn them on (except for location services for one or two applications) What's more, I always try to maintain the proper charge-discharge routine... Having said that, I don't know where the drop in efficiency comes from.

    I see you've already got great advice for iPad battery problems in your other threads. There's nothing else I could tell you. If this iPad also has battery issues, perhaps an app you're using is the reason for this, or visit Apple Store once more.
