No drain for me. Most of this was on 6.0.2 but ever since updating I still see no change in battery life. Waiting for it to die so I can charge it up fresh.

I drop about 10% an hour with casual Internet surfing(wifi). All background stuff is disabled per the various members recommendations.

I'm getting about the same, or really I can't tell any difference between ios 6.0.2 vs. 6.1 on my Mini.

Under heavy use, I'm getting between 10 to 11 hrs. Under light use, the timer shows 13 to 15 hours and I can go about 3-4 days of standby.

Contrary to some people, I have always updated my various iPhones, iPod touches and iPads throughtout the years since iOS 2.0. I have never had any issues with decreased battery life.

That is some crazy usage time you got there. My ipad 2 runs max at 13 hours i think.
