Increasing iPad 2 Battery life

Now that the iPad 3 has been released, with it's huge battery, will an iPad 3 battery fit in an iPad 2?

It would be great if it did, battery life would jump to over 20 hrs!!

Is this a good question?

Thanks for the reply.

The battery packs looked similar in the pictures, and changeing the connectors would not be impossible.

Anyway, it was just a thought.

No, the batteries are different sizes and shapes, it's not going to happen

You can reduce your brightness, turn Wi-Fi and 3G if you have it off to save battery life, and turn them back on when using them, this will add a few hours to the run time

The connectors are clearly different as you can tell on the iPad 3 battery, and unless someone tries this on their 2, we'll never know.

Right now, no
