...I got a total of a little more than 9 hours. I used my iPhone's stopwatch every time I turn on and use my iPad. Total time does not include standby. -Set-up my iPad as new. -60% brightness -Location Service on for 'Find My iPad' only -Push email de-activated -Bluetooth off -Mainly surfed the net, Flipboard, emailing I know this has been tackled before but I just want to chime in about the 'actual' use time I got from my iPad. Hope this is normal.
