Tips to Prolong the Battery Life of your ipad

Switch off Wireless and cellular data settings. Your apple ipad empties battery power when looking for and trying to connect with the closest Wi-Fi or mobile network tower , so if you’re not thinking about using Safari or applications that need these features , close them off .
• Go to “Settings”, “WiFi option” or “Cellular”, and tap the off switch

Switch off or reduce the timing for data fetching. Information that is up-to-date on a regular basis contains email notifications and RSS feeds.
• Go to “Settings”. Tap on “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” and go to “Fetch New Data”. Tap “Manually”

Switch off Push notifications. The effectiveness of this step depends upon the number of email messages or IM+ you generally receive; if you get a lot, this action is usually well worth using as this can diminish battery life.
• Go to “Settings”, “Mail, Contacts, Calendars” and “Fetch New Data”. Turn off Push.

Tone down the brightness. Needless to say that the brighter the screen, the more battery power your iPad utilizes. Turn the brightness down to the lowest setting you find pleasant.
• Go to “Settings”, then “Brightness & Wallpaper”.

Switch off location services. Active use of maps as well as other location services will deplete battery life. If left on, Maps updates constantly, something which you don’t need depleting your battery

Stay away from regular use of 3D or graphic heavy applications.

Turn on Airplane Mode whenever you don’t require wifi connections. It’s a fast and convenient solution to disable all of the iPad’s wifi capabilities like cellular data, Wi-Fi, GPS, location services and will boost battery life. It’s also smart to utilize Airplane mode in areas where 3G is patchy or weak.

Maintain the iPad away from temperature extremes. Exorbitantly high or low temperatures may cause the battery life to diminish

Maintain your software program current all the time. Apple advises updating on a regular basis because engineers search for different ways to optimize battery efficiency and when they find any ways of doing this, they pass these on via software improvements

Turn on the auto-lock function. This implies your iPad’s screen will turn off after a set period of time if left inactive. It doesn’t power off the iPad, just the screen.
• Go to “Settings”, “General”, and tap on “Auto Lock” . Set the interval to a short space of time, such as one minute
