Battery Seems To Lose Power Quickly

Must be my imagination but my battery seems to be dying quicker than usual. I have been Atomic Browser a lot lately and I heard that may be an issue. I has my iPad plugged into the charger all night. Woke up and unplugged had 100%. Now after about aprox 10 minutes of use it has dropped down to 97%. When i first got it it would take at least an hour before it would drop down to 99%. I'm probably worrying about nothing. If I'm being stupid just say so.

Battery Losing Charge Quickly?
Anyone had any issues with the iPad battery losing charge quickly? For instance, my iPad lost 12% of its charge (from 100% down to 88%) over a period of 10 hours with the device turned off. I made certain that all wifi and 3G network connections were switched off when I turned the iPad off.

I read a thread here suggesting that GoodReader may be a culprit (for some reason) and have since removed that app. Still waiting for a decent time to elapse before checking battery capacity again to see if that has made any difference.

Did not have this problem when the iPad was 'new', ie a couple of weeks old.

Battery Drains Quickly After 10 Percent Left?
I have an ipad1 the battery works great until it reaches with 10 percent battery left. And it comes up with a warning with 10 percent battery left and should charge. The problem is it drops quickly and it doesn't charge. I usually have to reconnect it to my CPU and when the screen comes back up plug it into the wall charger and then it is a slow process back to 100 percent. I have tried changing the cable wall charger plug.

IPad Battery Draining Quickly With Lock / Unlock Feature
My iPad battery is draining more quickly than normal when being woken from sleep by opening a case that works with the cover lock/unlock feature, It does not require me to slide to unlock. This happens whether I lock it by clicking the sleep button at the top of the iPad and then close the cover (there is the audio "click" that indicates it has slept). It does not happen if I wake it by using the buttons of the iPad. I'm unable to restore the iPad.

Way To Charge Battery - Connect To Power Outlet ?
"Charge the battery: The best way to charge the iPad battery is to connect iPad to a power outlet using the included Dock Connector to USB Cable and 10W USB power adapter. When you connect iPad to a USB 2.0 port on a Mac with the Dock Connector to USB Cable, iPad may charge slowly while syncing.
Important: The iPad battery may drain instead of charge if iPad is connected to a PC, to a computer that's turned off or is in sleep or standby mode, to a USB hub, or to the USB port on a keyboard.3g 8GB

When My Power Get's To 90% On A Recharge - Power Charging Icon Flash And A Constant Beeping Sound For A Few Minutes
I just got the latest upgrade that I installed yesterday from Apple.When my power get's to 90% on a recharge. I am seeing the Power charging icon flash and a constant beeping sound for a few minutes. It's like the power charging is being unplugged then plugged in again. Even if i turn off the device, and plug it in, I get the same results. It lasts for about 5 minutes and then it quiets down again and it appears to be charging normally.

It's an apple charger and and apple cable. I plugged in the same power configuration and I do not have an issue with my ITouch so I do not believe it's power related. I believe it was the last Upgrade because I never experienced this issue with the device and power charging configuration prior.I am on Version 5.1.1 (9B206) and it's a Model: MC705LL

Way To Run And Close An App Quickly?
Is there any way to "toggle off" background Apps? I have no need to keep newspapers, books, games, etc running in the back only to have to "Double tap the home button, hold the icon till it wiggles, tap the negative sign, close the bottom panel" - useless wate of time.If no, any shorter way to close an app other than the method described above? How about just flick up on the Home screen to get to the running apps bar (what do you call that bar anyway?) instead of having to click the home button twice? (You wouldn't believe how much noise that stupid button makes when it clicks when your partner is sleeping and you are reading in bed!) At the very least can't Apple just make the background Apps already have the little negative sign on them when they come up (like the close program "x" PC programs now have)? It would at least save the "hold till it wiggles step".Don't even get me started on the Mute button that only mutes system sounds (which I have turned off anyway) yet makes be do a whole bunch of steps to be able to screen lock! Can you say "user selectable function"?

Will I Lose The Books I Bought?
While on a trip, I bought an iPad last week and used a MacBook Air to sync.I also bought a few books via iBooks' store.The MacBook Air has iTunes with my normal account.

At home I have a Mac Pro which has all my music, movies, etc.When I connected the iPad to my Mac Pro, there was a warning that if I would sync it would erase everything on my iPad and replace it with the Mac Pro iTunes stuff.

Is there any way of syncing to my Mac Pro without losing the books?

Always Lose The Network For A Few Seconds ?
I own a New iPad with 4G LTE and I'm using it with Rogers LTE but I have an issue with networks. Let me explain: At my girlfriend's house, there is excellent reception of LTE and I'm getting crazy fast speeds. However, when I left the house and I'm moving to a area where there is no LTE, my iPad always lose the network for a few seconds. It happens exactly at the moment that I'm not getting LTE reception. The second that I'm out of the LTE zone, I'm getting "Searching..." in my status bar for like 5 seconds and after, I'm on 3G.

Update To OS5 Lose Work On App?
I use an Ipad 2 and currently on OS4.3. I am thinking of updating it to OS5. However, I have many apps that I have saved up to a certain progress of my work. For instance, I use the free app version of SimpleMind+Mind Mapping, and have writen out many mind-maps that I will need to keep. If I update the Ipads to OS5, then will the app, being re-installed, start right over from the beginning and lose all my work? Or will it save my work? RIght now there is no way to save my work except to leave them saved in the app itself. As I understand, the os5 updater works by uninstalling ALL your apps and then re-instaling them back from the computer into the ipad. This is just an example.
