So some people told me thats normal and as much i tried to believe them, i knew something was wrong, so i did not gave up to find out the truth. So i bought geekbench this morning, made a test, and the result was shocking...but check it out for your self:

  • Take this:

  • You better post a screenshot of Settings > Battery > Battery usage of the last 24 hrs

  • @mistkerl This post is gonna drain you - joking - a remedy maybe to let the battery drain and re charge to 100% fully with ipad switched off Heard from others with these issues that solved it.

  • You do a RAM reset to kill IAA zombies, correct? If not that will drain your battery like nothing else.

  • I don't know about the details of the process, but it's about estimating what might happen at some point in future anyway. It's not a fact ;)
    From real life:
    I use an iPhone 3gs for probably 8 years now, running on it's first battery, but actually the phone has bever been used in a typical 'always engaged for whatever' way.
    Similiar experience with an iPad 2, that spent most of it's life on an ioDock and now serves the lady of the house for occasional online sessions and games.

    This might imply that Apple once used 'better' batteries... or that the actual processing load/demand has some influence. Dunno.

    @mistkerl @marmakin I dont think thats the problem because switching the ipad on/off should kill IAA - try geekbench again after fully charging ipad switched off - keep me posted

    It was at 0% I re-charged it to 100% but never while it was switched off. I’ll try it tonight. Thank you

    I still have a 2 years old iPad mini, it has it last much longer thorough the day. But I don’t know if this even comparable.

    Ill do a few tests as soon as im home, I hope some of your tips gonna solve my DILEMMA . Thanks for participating

    You can clear the RAM in your iPad by holding the power button until you get the swipe to turn off message. Then let go of the power button and hold the home button until it goes back to your home screen. This kills all background audio app processes that can secretly drain your battery. It takes about 20 seconds to do and it’s best practice to do this after each badass jam sesh. Fully restarting the device makes this unnecessary but takes way longer.

    Does your brithness setting change the tests results?

    You can choose between dim and fullpower. I think it doesn’t matter because the scores were compared to the exact same tests.

    Right now my devices charges while its turned off. Will see if something’s gonna change ...
