We have an iPad 2 32GB and lately it hasn't been holding a charge or charging nearly as fast as it has in the past. We've disable location services on everything with the exception of iPad Finder app. and disabled bluetooth and notifications. We always close out apps hen w're done using them. Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening or any suggestions on how to make it better?  We'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

iPad 2, iOS 6.1

    Have you calibrated your battery lately?


    From http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipad.html  (at the bottom under "Use Your iPad Regularly")


    For proper reporting of the battery’s state of charge, be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down).



    There are also other suggestions in the article for extending battery life.
