    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.
