    Since its been more than 3 months since its debut, mind posting your battery statistics screenshots here. Personally, I can't complain. Averaging between 10 and 11 hours of normal usage ( Browsing, Netflix, email, games etc. ) Now, the standby time it's great. I can manage 2 or 3 days without charging it. Brightness set to 50% to 60% . I used to get 13 hours out of my old iPad 3, but im still ok with this one. I have the 64GB Cellular version with a T-Mobile plan. :)

    I follow Apple guidelines for the OEM batteries in my various iOS and OS X gear. With a rare exception I've always enjoyed excellent performance and lifespan from them.

    Honestly I don’t bother tracking them closely. I buy my Apple gear to use, enjoy, and not obsess over. :)

    Really disappointed by my wifi only one Air2 battery life so far. The battery drains fast and it rarely lasts me more than 7 hours. I'm not a big fan of reducing the screen brightness.

    At what % you set your iPad brightness? That is something that does affects the battery life. From your screenshot it seems like it can go between 9 to 10 hours on that charge.

    I keep my brightness at 90-100%. Like I said I think that below that you lose too much sharpness on the screen.

    Well that is probably why you are getting 6 or 7 hours. Maybe lowering it to 70 to 75% can get you 2 or 3 more hours and still is a reasonable good brightness.

    At what % you set your brightness? Mind sharing any tricks you have there for such an excellent battery life? Thanks.:)

    I have the brightness anywhere from 1% (early morning/late night) to 100% (lunchtime, midafternoon). WiFi, Bluetooth, location services are all on, all the time. I do kill apps in the background when done with them, but it probably doesn't make too much of a difference. Battle Supremacy, the top item, is a very graphics intensive game that I play often. It pretty much sounds like I'm doing everything to not have good battery life.

    1 % brightness ! Might as well turn the screen completely off. I find that anything below 80% brightness makes the screen look subpar.

    Safari drains way too much battery even with only one tab open.

    I have my air 2 on 40% auto, otherwise it's too bright for me. I always get over 11 hours usage time.

    This is my latest battery usage time. Spotify was for about an hour. On the heavy side there was Youtube, a graphics intensive game, and a lot of web browsing. Brightness set at 55 to 60 %. Pretty great if you ask me.:)

    Been really happy with it thus far. Been getting anywhere between 13 & 14.5 hours a charge. Even when on LTE, I don't see it draining noticable quicker. The A8 is definitely drawing much less power than the A7. I got worse battery life on my Air 1 and that had a bigger battery
