I do not know what about the others, but in my case, i found tablet very useful for gauching, traveling and for wasting time. But what is important in my case is, that when i fully charge battery on my iPad 2 and I'm going to put it in the bag, where it spends most of it's time, but always close to me. I can rely on one thing and that's one of most important in my case. When i need to use my iPad after 17 days, i can take it from my bag and I know that there will be enough capacity of battery, to be able to reply all the emails, check iclarified, theverge, engadget, play flappy bird for while and then put it back. What i found for most of androids. (In my case NEXUS 7) - is that when i try to take it from my bag i usually found that device fully discharged in 3 maximum 4 days. Even if i was not touching it. So anyway, your charts are really nice and differences are really small, iPad in my bag can stay alive for almost month and there is nothing to change about this. Yes and I forgot to mention WIFI is enabled all the time, and when my bag is lying on the ground i can sometimes hear how messages, iMessages are coming to my iPad even when I'm not using it. almost instantly when I'm receiving those on iPhone. Hopefully this has not been changed within iPad Air, and other guys here can confirm.
