Amazing Battery Life

After having my iPad mini for a little over a week I am amazed about how long the battery lasts. Here is my usage...

I saw similar results before returning my iPad Mini - although it was counting "usage time" when it was asleep. (Cant prove it - but my usage time was way too high.)

That's a pretty impressive battery. Although, strangely enough, when I visit Apple's iPad mini specs page, I can't find any information on it's standby battery life.

OP, what were you doing with your iPad during that time? Battery life will vary depending on usage, so just posting the times without any context isn't very revealing.

The iPad has phenomenal standby life. When Steve Jobs announced the first iPad, he claimed it had a standby time of 30 days. I'm sure the latest generations are no slouches either.

Stating battery life of any individuals iPhone, iPad, MBA, MBP is rather useless. There are simply too many variables. What I do know is that in the big picture Apple does a pretty good job at balancing the various challenges when choosing the battery capacity, charging characteristics & run times. Over the years I've just kept up to date with Apples battery charge & maintenance info, and enjoyed great service & lifespans from the products I've purchased.

My Ipad 2 has longer usage time. But i heard Ipad 4 has the longest.

It really depend what you use it for. I play hardcore games with unreal engine like Epoch, Batman lockdown continuously and battery die faster.
