    I think I got about 12 hours of usage on the initial charge my iPad came out of the box with. I'm on my first 100% charge now. Will report back when it's drained!

    It did even better the second go round. 30 minutes more usage and 1.5 days more standby.
    I think Apple is only advertising 10 hours so I'm getting 50% more than that. No complaints here.

    Mine is insanely good as well. The first weekend I had it, I took it to a local Panera to work on some writing with a writing group. They all had laptops and I had the iPad Air and the Zagg Keyboard Case. My battery started at around 85% and after two hours of the iPad being "on", connected via Bluetooth to the keyboard, and me using Pages, my percentage maybe dipped 3-5%. All of my laptop using friends were scrambling for power cords.

    That time was mostly wifi (maybe 95%) with the rest on cellular, using a variety of apps that all access the 'net. I do not have any settings turned off, Bluetooth on, notifications on, parallax on, etc. I did have the cellular access turned off when not using it. I did not have Skype running.

    Over 12 hours of usage and 33% still left! Most of that usage was playing Final Fantasy 4, too. Insane battery life, IMO. Ecstatic!

    This is from the first full charge taken yesterday before the battery ran out. I didn't think the battery was ever going to die. The iPad Air is like the energizer Bunny. It keeps going and going and going....

    I was able to get 14 hours of use after the second charge. I think I could have got more but Most of that usage was on LTE.
