Battery life in comparison to the old iPad(s)
I was just wondering if anyone has had extensive use and tested your new iPads' battery life so far? It may be a novelty effect, but it seems to me that this new iPad lasts much longer than my previous iPad (1st gen).
I narrowed it down to a few reasons:
1) I live outside of North America, so there's no LTE to suck my battery dry.
2) My old iPad's nearly two years old, so its lifespan may have degraded in comparison to the new one.
3) This new iPad larger battery REALLY does last longer?
Like to hear your thoughts and experiences. Please share...

I haven't had the newest iPad long (obviously) but day one use leads me to believe it's at least as good as iPad 1 and 2 (I have WiFi only version).Rob Terry

The new Ipad seems better than the original Ipad's battery,not sure about Ipad 2,but I was on it all day yesterday and it died around early this morning.I have only had wi-fi versions of the Ipad but I would imagine that being on LTE would make the battery go down a little but not too fast depending on usage

Well, I guess this isn't a problem, but more of just wanting different opinions to make sure I wasn't undergoing the "novelty" effect of a new gadget...
