    No.  But there are things to watch out for, to save your battery.  Do you completely close down your apps, at least periodically?   If not, some apps may be communicating or performing work in the background, using up power.  To check, double click the Home button.  A list of recently used apps appears along the bottom.  Press one for a few seconds until they all wiggle.  Then press the x to close them.  Admittedly many apps are not designed to multi-task, but for those that do, they keep working in the background.  Also, how high is your brightness setting.  I keep mine near the low end.  Brightness also chews up power - a lot.  Do you keep your bluetooth on?

    It would help to know how long your battery is lasting, what you are doing, and how bright you have the backlight set. Without even trying to conserve the battery I'm able to get just over the advertised 10 hours. However, I have a couple games that eat the battery up faster and so does Netflix.

    What is "too fast"?

    Do you mean less than 10 hours of battery charge?
