    Hey
    Wanted to ask a quick question, if it is a common problem or I am the only one who was "lucky" enough to receive a defective Ipad2.

    When I read any PDF files on my iPad I have usually the following statistics:

    -1% battery / every 4-5 mins

    It took me 8 (!) hours and 50 mins to discharge the iPad completely (from 100%) reading PDF files.

    What is your brightness set at?

    thanks for your the interest in the problem :)

    I set the brightness lvl to be approximately 30-35% (1/3).

    Doesn't sound too bad to me. If you're not reading PDFs, but doing other things, how much longer does your battery last?

    significantly longer!
    It took me approximately 10-15 minutes to lose 1% of the battery
    when I played Plants vs Zombies
    and (!) you won't believe 26 minutes to lose 1% of the battery when I did nothing, just unblocked it, turned off the auto-lock and left it lying idle on the sofa.

    (the brightness was the same)

    Sorry for not replying, had pretty hectic weekend
    I appreciate you helping me :)
