Why waste my time when all 5 devices have had the same issue? The issue is not a BAD battery, the issue is Apple lies about battery charge longevity. With the iPad 3 it is no big deal as I use it mostly at home where I can easily plug it in. I rarely watch videos--mostly read books and surf the internet a bit and the screen brightness is always fairly low. Same with iPt4.
