Battery life on ipad2 after ios5.1

Ya know, maybe Im just watching closer but I do feel its a little worse than before. I read the newspaper on my iPad every morning and start out at 100%. After about 15-20 minutes and a bowl of cereal, Its usually still at 100% still or 99% at the worst. Got to 98% this morning. Just a browser open, nothing else. I have all of the known features turned off/disabled that I dont use too so Im already in battery-save mode. It also seemed to drain faster yesterday than before although the kids were gaming on it for a good chunk of the day. Probably not a big deal, but I wonder if the 5.1 update turned something on or enabled something?
