I have been using my Logitech Ultrathin keyboard case for about a week and it seems the battery does drain a bit quicker with bluetooth turned on and the keyboard connected. What's everyone else's experience with using bluetooth keyboards with their iPads. Little drain? Fast drain?

I don't find any difference using a bluetooth keyboard. I'm sure there is a slight one but really it shouldn't be too much of a drain. I use different ones for iPad 2 and iPad Air, have used them both for both models, and couldn't see any change..

I just got the Logitech Keyboard today. How long does your Air's battery last? I have a mini so there might be some dfference in battery life. How do you like the Logitech keyboard? So far I love it. I type faster on here then I do on my regular macbook keyboard, which is weird, but no complaints so far. One more question, how long does it usually take for your keyboard to charge?
