What ipad do you have?

The 32nm chips in the 2 and 4 have lower power requirements. The 4 also came with a 12w power supply.

Maybe it's the jailbreak or a faulty battery.My ipad4 lasts 15 hours wifi surfing and at least 7 hours playing games like Real Racing 2HD.Recharging takes about 5 hours from fully flat.

I've not jail broke, so can't comment on that.

Tricks that work for me are turning down brightness. Also, see if you can pick up a 12w charger. They will work with the iPad 3 and might drop your charging time down.

First possibility. You jailbroke it. Restore it without the jailbreak set it up new and test it with clean and proper software, what happens.

Then clean it again, jailbreak and only use 'proper' Apple provided apps. What happens.

If so far so good, reinstall your jailbreak tweaks and apps one at a time and retest after each one so you can see when things go off. Whatever you just did is very possibly the culprit
