If you have brightness turned up you will reduce battery life. Reducing the brightness setting will increase battery life. Also, turn the Auto-lock to a short internal in Settings > General > Auto-lock. Turn Off things that you aren't using, e.g., BlueTooth, etc.
Thanks... I have most notifications off... Including locations... I shortened the auto lock and the brightness is midway... Still seem to charge down quickly. Would it have to do with the wireless search?
