    Down to 1% as I type this.

    11 hours 15 minutes of usage at 50% brightness, 20% time spent gaming, the rest browsing and e-mail.

    Anybody else care to report?

    No exact numbers, but generally >10 hours. Definitely better than the iPad 3!

    I was wondering if it was better than the 3. A few online reviews have mentioned that it's a bit odd that the A6X uses less power than the A5X, but Apple doesn't claim a better battery life. Perhaps the difference isn't significant enough to publicize.

    Ever went down to under 30%. The other night I got 8 hrs and 25 min with about 40% left. Couple of hour of gaming streaming (Netflix hbgo) and the est was surfing. Much better then my TF tablet. Very happy with the battery life

    The iPad 2 pretty much hit 10 hours exactly, the iPad 3 was more often than not done after 9 hours and the iPad 4 seems to be better again. The average battery life is probably around 10 hours for all of them so I guess the differences aren't big enough to advertise it.
    That aside my iPad 4 is definitely holding up a little better battery wise. And it runs cooler, too.

    iPad 4 has amazing battery life for me

    Just got one and its lasted 9 hours usage at 22 hours standby with 50% left - games, browsing, email youtube and Netflix

    After over a year of usage my ipad 2 only gets marginally more on a complete discharge.

    I set at 100% brightness, after 4 hours 50 mins now at 28%. I have the wifi version and have been browsing all the time. It is bad?

    Battery life has been amazing for me.

    Lots of FaceTime, skyping and a few games - screen is at lowest brightness because I use it at night in the dark.
