    I ran mine down until it cut off. Like 9.5 hours. I was mostly playing video with screen on 45% brightness. Try it for yourself. It will help calibrate your battery.

    That's a question no one can answer as it is entirely dependent on your usage. The battery capacity is increased over that in previous iPads because of the new screen and graphics. They increased the size to keep the length of use the same as it had been on the older versions.

    Try turning your brightness level down under Settings. Mine was using battery fast last week because i forgot I had turned up the brightness when I was outside. Turned it down and battery capacity is back to normal.
