If it has happened to you with multiple devices (and if I recall correctly a battery addon that wasn't made by Apple), but not to other people, maybe it is you?
Do you live in particularly hot or cold temperatures?
Personally one one occasion I got around 12 hours use out of my iPad 1, reading at lowest brightness, but only about 6 hours of use streaming video at max brightness using Bluetooth headphones. So that seems like the extreme range I would get when using it.
ISTR that most review of the iPad found battery life greater than that claimed by Apple.
