Question iPad mini, LTE and battery

Has anyone noticed that by leaving the cellular modem turned on, when hooked up to wifi, the awesome battery life goes out the window? I have been wondering why I had such bad battery life. Then just to try something, I turned off the cellular modem. That nearly doubled my battery life. I tried a search to see if there was any posts about this. Anyone else run into this?

Yes it makes a huge difference. I wish I could jailbreak and have a SBSettings toggle.
