The iPad’s battery suffers from the same weakness that the iPhone’s does – it is non-replaceable. One big difference though is how Apple will handle things when the battery dies (of natural causes) on the iPad – Apple will replace the iPad itself.
From the Battery Replacement Service FAQ page:
What is iPad Battery Replacement Service?
If your iPad requires service due to the battery’s diminished ability to hold an electrical charge, Apple will replace your iPad for a service fee.
As expected, this replacement service is not available if the iPad has been damaged in various ways:
Note: Your iPad is not eligible for Battery Replacement Service if the product has been damaged, for example, as result of an accident, liquid contact, disassembly, unauthorized service or unauthorized modifications, or if the product is not operating correctly as a result of a component failure.
The replacement service costs $99 plus $6.95 shipping – and should be completed within approximately one week from the time your iPad is sent to (or more like received by?) Apple.

Allrighty then. Let’s get ready to turn brightness all the way up, leave all our services on all day long and run them batteries down. :)
