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

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.
