    Hi All,

    So I got a 64gb iPad, and I've started to watch the battery closely. I'm not sure if thedrain I am noticing is normal, or if I should panic (yea, I know, another one of these thjreads).

    I have my screen brightniess set way down, it is like 1/4. I have fetch turned off, and notifications turned off (just did then notifications now).

    When playing Aurora Feint, for 10 minutes, I noticed my battery dropped 2 to 3%, I'm assuming that is normal? Or should it drop less. Also when playing T chess pro for a solid 15/20 minutes I noticed my battery dropped a good 5/6%.

    Once again, not sure if this is normal or not, but I figured I should ask.

    Thanks all for any help!

    I've been using my ipad for 4 hours 45 mins and my iPad has lost 30% battery with push notifications on location services on and brightness on auto..pretty impressive.
