Adjust Screen Brightness

Turn Off Event E-Mail Notifications

The Apple Calendar in iPad synchronizes with your device’s GPS and Wi-Fi. The Calendar sends push e-mail notifications consuming battery power without you knowing. Similarly, the e-mails are sent to notify regarding the events you have premeditated in the Calendar. To turn it off, go to Settings > View > Show Calendar List > Ignore Alerts and click OK.

Manage Applications Well

While your iPad is kept idle or when you are using running apps, Apple keeps refreshing the system apps leading to battery consumption.

Here, you could turn off the refresh option for inactive apps completely or chose specific applications.

Install App Managers

The Battery Doctor app is available on iTunes for free. This application would let you figure out the application-wise battery consumption.

After finding that, you can use the background app refresh feature accordingly.
