    I was able to get 13 hours and 46 minutes of battery life out of my iPad 2 doing mostly web browsing, watching YouTube videos and playing fruit ninja.

    What's the best you have gotten?

    Wow! Very impressive.

    That being said, I might think about adding to your title to let people know you are talking about battery life. Might make more people click!

    how can you find out how long your battery lasts? I don't see it in my preferences on my iPad 2..

    How do you measure it, there's no OS level to do it from what I can tell.

    Got about 13 hours with straight out of box iPad 2.

    There or there abouts.

    Edit: realised my post implied I didn't charge it. I did, the first charge lasted longest.

    As of yesterday I had more than 12 hours and when I finished playing (Broken Sword), I still had around 10% left. Pretty impressive, I'd say.

    is there something in the iPad that actually measures usage?

    I'm not sure as there is no great way to test it. All I know is I can use it 2 or 3 days on 1 charge, but that doesn't help.

    how are all of you measuring your battery life? since there's no official way to document it, are you just estimating?
