Some tips to improve your iPad 2’s Battery Life

One of the great features that Apple has announced the iPad 2 in the world was the longer battery life. They claimed that the iPad 2 WiFi will last up to 10 hours and the iPad 2 WiFi+3G will go on for 9 hours before you will charge again. Those stats are very impressive but what actually happens in real life doesn’t seem to coincide with what Apple has experimented in their laboratories. You may sometimes find yourself watching HD movies at full brightness with multiple email accounts and instant messengers running on the background, and 6 hours was the maximum and your iPad 2 battery will be drained.

Here are some tips to improve your iPad 2’s battery life so you can get close with what apple had claimed.
Lock your iPad. If you are not using it, lock it! I know that your auto-lock feature is enabled but since it’s just so simple to lock, why don’t you do it? Shorten the time setting for auto-lock feature to the most (1 minute I guess).

Dim the screen. Although the Auto-brightness feature was turned-ON by default, you can always adjust the brightness by heading to Settings and adjusting brightness. If your iPad 2 was jailbroken, make sure to install SBSettings so that you can adjust the brightness in just a single swipe of your finger. This is the biggest yet simplest way to save the battery of your iPad 2.

Remove the case. When using or charging your iPad 2, just remove the [easyazon-link asin="B004Q7KTF4"]ipad case[/easyazon-link]. This is because some casing may generate heat for your iPad, therefore reducing the battery life. Your iPad uses Lithium-based battery which is sensitive to heat but will last longer when it’s cooled. So, taking your iPad 2 out of the case when using or charging may increase battery life.

Install the recent iOS. Make sure to update into the latest iOS firmware. Some bugs and odd behaviors in some apps may be fixed through update. But if your iPad 2 was jailbroken by JailbreakME 3.0, don’t bother to update for iOS 4.3.4 or you may lose your jailbreak.
