    Is it just me? Or is the keyboard a battery eater on the ipad. I've noticed that it eats the iPad battery faster when it's connected.

    I think just having bluetooth turned on will reduce battery life, how much reduced battery are you seeing?

    I haven't noticed it all. I used my iPad for a few hours last night with the Apple Keyboard and went to bed without charging it, right now it's at 50%.

    Maybe a little faster, as expected, but nothing drastic.

    BT and WiFi powered on at the same time will burn battery faster than just WiFi. This works the same way on the iPhone as well.
