iPad Air vs. iPad Mini 2: Battery
In our iPad Air vs iPad Mini 2 review, we compare specs, battery life and pricing...
iPads have always performed well in battery tests, and the iPad Air and iPad Mini 2 are no exceptions. The Air has an 8,837 mAh battery, whereas the Mini 2 has 6471 mAh battery to power its smaller 7.9-inch display.
Apple's website claims the devices have a 10-hour battery life for Wi-Fi browsing or video playback. We ran both devices through our Iron Man video playback test, with Wi-Fi turned off and the brightness set to 75 per cent. The two devices actually managed to surpass Apple's battery life claims.
Of course, you'll be looking at battery life closer to the 10-hour mark with Wi-Fi turned on, but this is still impressive.
Winner - iPad Air - Both tablets have exceptional battery life but the Air shaded it in our test.
