My I Pad is just a little over a year old. I don't think it's old age! I did update to the new software that's supposed to address the battery issues. Maybe that will help

You can test your iPad battery capacity with a simple test using a power meter.
1) Let the battery discharge completely - then turn the iPad off (if its not powered off allready)
2) Plug the iPad charger into the Power meter and let it charge till it's full. (make sure the iPad is off)
3) After a full charge read the Power Meter count of Wh.
If your battery has a capacity of 16Wh and the Power Meter says 8 Wh for a complete charge, the actual Ipad battery capacity is less than 8Wh. So worn down by 50%.
The test gives a rough indication about the wear of your battery.
The process is explain here: Ipad Mini Battery Charge Test.

Wonder if installing the new IOS 7 caused this battery life drop? It did mess up the library Overdrive program.
