    So, I stumbled upon this post today:

    http://www.9to5mac.com/56694/ios-4-3-users-report-subnormal-battery-performance/

    iOS 4.3 brought enhanced AirPlay, a speedier Safari, iTunes Home Sharing, and more to iOS device users, but it appears that iOS 4.3 has brought another thing, a seemingly negative one: subpar battery life. A number of readers have written in to less us know that since upgrading to iOS 4.3 their battery life has been “drastically” worse. One report to us claims random battery life drops in 15-20% increments.

    And suddenly what I had been experiencing these past few days made a lot of sense.
    Just yesterday, I left the house for the evening around 9 pm with a little over 60% charge. During the evening/night, I used safari once for a few minutes, sent about a dozen texts and chatted on WhatsApp for around 15 minutes.
    At 4 am, my phone DIED.
    This is really bad... :eek:

    Anyone else experience this?

    Ahh nevermind, I just saw that there's already a pretty big thread about this, so I guess this can be deleted :eek:

    On a side note, I noticed my battery life on my ipad2 has been a little lower than on my ipad1. Ipad1 battery = legendary, ipad2 = notsomuch
