You can wipe out your iPad battery pretty quick if you use the device to game, play music or stream video content for long periods of time. Adjust the brightness of your screen if you would like to extend the battery’s life. In most cases, there is no need to keep the maximum brightness level to read, surf the Internet or tinker with apps.
