You might want to tell us 'what' might have changed in the last few days w/ your iPad, e.g. iOS update, new app(s) added, new wireless uses, etc.?

Also if not already done, 'Reset' the device (hold the On-Off & Home buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - may take about 10 seconds or so - then release both buttons and wait for the iPad to 'reboot').

In addition, take a look at the Apple Battery Support Article & Tips Extending Battery Life - good luck and let us know your progress - Dave :)

Will try the reboot, also have deleted some apps to no avail, I closed last night after closing my apps, I have lost 25 percent at startup this morning.

Have moved home also, and was unable to get broadband for almost a week as there was only one phone link in the house and I did not have a filter, BT put one in the post which took a week to reach me, I think it came by Camel!? apart from that nothing else has changed. After rebooting I got a little power back?

Think I might have solved the problem, 476 messages on cloud, which I never use, I could not find a way to delete them all, So have turned off in settings I was asked did I want to delete all so I said yes.

How do you have your email set up? If it's set to Push it will connect and download your email whenever it is received.....I have mine set to manual which means my email is downloaded when I open the mail app.

Settings - Mail, Contacts, Calendars - Fetch New Data

You should watch out for the apps you've downloaded. Some are very battery draining.

Ive heard that leaving your ipad in a hot car can permanently damage the battery. Also, letting it deep freeze in the wintertime.
