Naturally the battery life of any Apple device can and will diminish over time. You can do small things to prevent this from happening drastically(let the battery nearly fully die before fully charging again).. But unfortunately its unavoidable.I was wondering for those of you with the iPad and iPad 2 if you've noticed the battery life diminish much over time? I only ask because this is the main factor in me getting the extended warranty.
I've gotten a factory refurb of an iPod mini with battery problems in the past. Right now my iPod Touch 4G is diminishing coming up on the one year mark.I have owned both iPads and after hard day in and day out use the battery is still only needing charging every few days or so.
By the time your battery shows any signs of not being the same capacity, you will be getting the iPad 4. If you feel better getting the warranty, do so, but Apple is not going to fix this at your wish. It is only natural for there to be a slight decrease in performance but you would have to have a drastic decrease to have it covered under warranty.
