    On my iPad 3G, with only WiFi and Bluetooth on. Connected to WiFi network, and noticed that my bluetooth keyboard was still connected, with mix used but heavy plant vs zombies action, I noticed about a 20% drop in an hours use. Does this seem normal? Perhaps it was the keyboard being connected (noticed by lit up bluetooth icon on iPad when exiting plants vs. zombies - by the way a fun game! I played for the first time today!)

    Anyway, just looking for any opinions if that seems 'normal'. Brightness was at about 50% as well.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Using 3g or wifi, the battery falls maybe 10% in an hour's steady use for me. I haven't used bluetooth, but could realistically see that cutting battery life substantially.
