I have just the Same problem, i hope There Will be an update for that of you calculade that the iPad 2 stays 30 Days in standby and the new iPad only 4 Days with à full battery (-1%/hour)
I'm not glad with this.. I tested some Things and of you put you're iPad at flightmode you dont lose so much % like now but stil it is not normal that we put out iPad in flightmode of off to save battery in standby of to charge faster..

I know you said you don't have any apps installed, but look in the settings for notifications and see what's defaulted on. Examples I've seen in the past is mail defaulting to fetch instead of push (So it's always reaching out to pull in mail, burning battery). ALso I've noticed that my bluetooth seems to always be on where it used to go dormant.
Just little things that default on that can be battery eaters.

I'm experiencing the same issue. I'm set to push, no bluetooth and all apps closed... still losing about 10-12% charge overnight. Trying this now: airplane mode, but with WiFi on to see if it has something to do with the AT&T LTE. Tomorrow I'll try full airplane mode to see if there's a difference.

I, too, have noticed about 8-10% battery drain overnight on my 32gb wifi only model. My settings are very similar: push on for a select few apps (mail, twitter/facebook, etc.), wifi on, bluetooth off.
My previous iPad 2 had exactly the same settings/conditions when I would leave it off the charger overnight and I would not see this type of battery drain.
As an experiment, I turned on airplane mode last night and awoke to only a 2% drop in indicated charge this morning. Seems like a bug in iOS 5.1 dealing with the wifi and/or cellular data connection (and I truly hope that it is). Don't really want to go through swapping this one out for a replacement. Will definitely stay tuned to this thread.

I am experiencing the same quick battery drain issues with my new iPad. I charged it overnight and hardly used it this morning and not I have 89% left on usage using wi-fi overriding LTE. I pretty much did all the tips online on conserving battery on the iPhone 4, applied the same settings on my new iPad. This is my 3rd iPad (64gb with LTE) ; have had iPad 1 - 2 and now this. My old iPad 2 has better battery life than this one.
HELLOOOOOOO, Apple, how many entries in this discussion forum re this issue do you need to look at this and come up with the fix just like that of iPhone 4. Come on!

As I have said before, it doesn't matter if you have an LTE version of the iPad or wifi version. There is a bug in the OS (iOS) and we will probably see a new update (iOS 5.1.1) within 1 - 2 weeks. So just keep an eye on it!
P.S Btw, These tips might help you to save some extra % of your battery life before the new iOS update:
- If you have bluetooth or LTE (LTE version) enabled and you don't use it, Make sure to always disable them.
- Delete apps that are running in background. (Multitaskingbar)
- Disable "Location Services". (Settings --> Location services --> OFF)
- ALWAYS charge you iPad to 100% before unplug it.
- Turn down the "Brightness" to 35-40 % (Instead of 50%)
This will of course work on all iDevices that are running on iOS 5, 5.0.1, 5.1.
Hope this can help you for now until the update.

Strange... Mine went down to 90% or so very fast, but I can't really complain, as I've been using it for 11 hours or so without a charge and it still has 27% battery left. Not bad for a 10-hour battery life, methinks! I guess I'm just lucky. Seems like it goes down to 90 very fast, then slows down.

Same here, but everytime it drains quickly (drops from 100% to 90% in 20 minutes), I reboot the iPad and it goes back to 100%. Very strange, but something tells me our problems have something to do with the indicator of the battery rather than the battery itself.
