    Default Battery Life

    Hey all,
    Love my iPad3 (purchased last week as returned item at Best Buy. It's in great, if not perfect condition.)

    However the battery life is not as good as my wife's or my son's iPad 1.

    The only thing I have on is the wi-fi, push email, and the brightness is set to about 40%.

    I got home today, and it was charged 100%, but it went down to 96% with virtually no use.

    Yesterday, over 50% of the battery power drained with moderate use throughout the day. Just some YouTube videos, surfing and email.

    I wouldn't be writing this if the other two iPads acted the same way, but my wife can't even remember when she charged hers last, and she gets a ton of emails on two accounts throughout the day.

    Has anyone else experienced low battery life on a relatively new iPad 3?

    Mine is running 5.1.1.

    Stop playing the battery watch game, buy a couple extra chargers and then just plug it in where every you go. I keep a charger at work, one at the shore house, and 2 at the house. Always have 1 handy when I need a quick charge up.
