Heat problem with battery life

I bought reserved iPad on launch day. I guess when I used this first time for a week, its battery life was good.

Now I found out my iPad battery drains so fast. Even when I dont use wifi and bluetooth and turn off iPad screen, battery reduces about some percentages. And I found there are some heat upper side and left side not on LCD screen, near screen even while not using it. The other parts are not warm at all even while screen on.

Any suggestion?

Or should I just bring it to apple genius?

So I got a full refund due to battery issue. They had iPad check program itunes-like. It says Usage time: 6 hours (with 89% remained battery) which means battery lasts 60 hours while using. The genius said there must be something wrong with battery. So I got a refund without restocking fee. I'm thinking buying iPad 3g.

Oh, plus I thought it had heat problem. I checked other iPads at apple store. They were all warm in the same places. So maybe it's supposed to be like that.

Definitely, take it back. It's a new product, and it should be performing perfectly. I know people at the Apple store and there have been a few returns like this, so you're not the only one. I've had my iPad since the day it came out, and I've only had to charge it twice since then, and I've been using it all the time.

Also, make sure you're using the charger that came with it, and make sure to test charging while connected to the wall, rather than a computer. The iPad only charges when connected to USB 2.0 ports that meet certain specifications (I don't remember what they are off the top of my head), and I've heard that connecting to non-compliant USB ports can cause problems, such as a drainage of power.

If it's not performing up to specs, and I think the battery is listed at 10 hours, take it back and ask for a new one.
