    Seems like after I updated to iOS 5.0.1 the battery life got better. Is there a set of verified tips to extend battery life somewhere?

    Here are some common things you can do:

    Turn your screen brightness down to as low of a level you are happy with. The lower, the better.

    Turn OFF Bluetooth if you aren't using it

    Turn OFF push notifications if you don't need them o want them.

    Turn OFF Location services if you don't need them for a specific reason.

    Turn the "sleep" waiting time down to two minutes or five minutes.

    Turn OFF WiFi if you don't need it.

    I also suggest letting the battery go down to almost zero% every month or so which will ensure that meters accurate. Otherwise, just keep it charged up and enjoy. I've found the battery life on my iPad 2 quite excellent!

    Hope this helps. :)
