    I've found a number of battery life comparisons between the iPad 2 and 3 but they all focus on internet browsing or playing video. Has anyone compared battery life when gaming? If so please share your results, including the name of the game and screen brightness level.

    Nobody has compared battery life while gaming because it varies wildly depending on what kind of game it is.

    Well, we could get some idea if users posted results with the same game.

    Ive been playing 'Where's my Water' at 50% brightness and the game is a battery vampire. I lose something like 15% per hour. I thought my device might have had a fault but when browsing the web Im down to only 10% per hour at 50% brightness.

    My iPad 2 did a fair bit better than that

    Well if you have and Ipad 2 and Ipad 3, just compare the same game. I would just assume most that got a 3 sold the 2, or upgraded from 1.

    Thanks that's very helpful.

    I'm curious to know how the battery performs with a game like IB II or modern combat. Anyone?
