    Have you checked the battery settings to see what app/s are possibly draining your battery? Post a screen shot of you can.

    I would say that's not normal. Here's a screenshot of my usage today.

    Have it checked out at the Apple Store. I'm at 10 hours and I have 40% left with good use out of web browsing, YouTube, and Clash of Clans.

    Check it at the genius bar, if I'm mainly using safari youtube, email etc basic things, I get 20 hours easily. If its games about 15 hours. Sometimes I get even more. A few times I've had a days usage with it.

    I thought the iPad Air 2's battery was pretty bad because the iPad was made thinner, reducing battery capacity. I guess I was wrong with that assumption. However, you guys have simply incredible battery usage times, so incredible that I hardly believe it. What brightness do you guys use your iPads at? Mine typically is around 40%.

    Another thing I'm wondering is how the iPad mini is with battery, because my mini 2 gets about 7 hours on average, but pretty much all I use it for are games and this forum. All other things like texting, social media, phone calls are usually done on my iPhone 6.

    And to the original poster, I would suggest making your screen brightness 50% or less. Next time your iPad is at 1%, take a screenshot of your battery usage in settings. If you can't do anything to help the battery life, try restoring through iTunes and setting the iPad up as new.

    That's just an example for poor battery calibration. If you do the math your battery will last anywhere from 100 hours to an indefinite amount of time. :)
