Don't expose iPad to high or low temperature

If the iPad is exposed to high or low temperatures, its battery could be harmed and it causes decrease in battery life. So you should be careful about that. It should be OK between 32 degrees F and 95 degree F.
Update the Firmware

Whenever there is a new update of your iPad's firmware is available, you should update it. Apple might be bringing new features in the firmware which could increase your iPad's battery life.

You could increase your iPad's battery life greatly by lowering the brightness. Go to Settings -> Brightness & Wallpaper and lower it by dragging the slider to the left.

Disable Push Notifications

The Push Notifications are used to make you aware mainly of of your iPad updates. But turning it off could save and improve some battery life. So to disable it, go to "Settings" and turn the "Push Notifications" feature off.

Disable sounds

Go to Settings > General > Sounds. You will find five different options to Increase/Decrease or switch to On/Off based on your personal choice, though disabling all of these would decrease the battery usage.

Disable Location Services

I am not saying you should always keep the location services off, but just when you are not in need of it, or when your iPad’s battery is low. To disable it, go to Settings -> General and turn the Location Services off.

Turn off Push Mail

If you are receiving emails frequently, it could affect your iPad’s battery life. So turning off Push Mail will do it. Go to Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Fetch New Data and turn Push off.


Turn on Auto Lock

Turn on the Auto Lock feature so that whenever the iPad is inactive, it automatically turns off after a certain time interval.
