    Hey guys, I was just wondering how everyone is syncing their new iPads. Is everyone doing wired syncs or has everyone switched over to a wifi sync? I set up wifi sync on my iPad 2 when the feature was first introduced but quickly turned it off because it drained my battery? Has this issue been fixed? Does it drain the battery at all or is it a feature that uses battery only when it's used? Thanks guys.

    Not much of an impact on battery life. Especially not now with how great iPad battery life is.

    By not much do you mean pretty much no noticeable impact?

    On some occasions, I've been looking at 14+ hours of usage time on my Air. With Wifi sync enabled.

    The bigger issue with wifi sync is even getting the thing to work. It's pretty temperamental. iTunes doesn't always pick up on my Air. Had the same problem with other iOS devices.
