My iPad battery life has been very poor since doing a system restore. Does anyone know why this might be & is there any way to improve it?

iPad, iOS 4.3.3

    some apps which use the location service you see this by a arrow is being displayed beside the bat %

    suck battery fast make sure to double tab the home button and close those apps when you're not using them

    There is some info/tips on 'extending' the battery life on this page www.apple.com/batteries/ipad.html

    Thanks. have done this but doesn't seem to help. Haven't changed the use of my iPad but it now discharges by 25% overnight & this has only been happening since system restore

    sooner or later all batteries die

    that you noticed a change since the system restore

    could be  coincidentally like if it you started noticing it

    when a black cat crossed the road


    at any rate I would try to close all apps when you don't use it

    by double tabbing the home button and pressing icons until they wiggle

    and click X on them to see if it makes any difference

    It is only 1 year old - would not expect battery to die just yet as it does not get heavy use. I don't think it's just a coincidence as it has been such a dramatic change! I keep all apps closed when I'm not using them - doesn't help

    double click Home Button. End the apps you do not need running, especially App Store.

    "It is only 1 year old "


    all electronic components have a life span as that lifespan varies from component to component

    the lifespan is measured in a % fatality rate

    so one component may die after a week and one may last 10years


    componts which use chemestry  like a batt the lifespan is even harder to measure so the fact that your ipad is only 1 year old and as such should not have a defect battery is just a statistic thing
