Have the same problem but my iPad have lots of apps so I deleted some and I always close the open apps in the background. Try reducing the screen motion as well because sometimes the background image/wallpaper effects cause more battery usage. If those doesn't resolve the problem try downloading the latest 7.0.2 through wifi to have the bug fixed. If the problem persist, try to contact Client Care at 1-866-558-2273 or dialing *611 for further assistance.

More Battery Low Fixes:

There are plenty of other things you can do to save your battery life; most of these settings can be changed via the Control Center:

Switch off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi when you are not using them
Switch off 4G LTE
Change your Auto-Lock setting to 1 Minute and make sure you lock your device when you are not using it
Turn off the click sounds of the keyboard
If you are listening to music or watching a video use headphones instead of the speakers
Change your mail settings to Fetch instead of Push
Try restarting your device, this will shut down everything and you can start afresh
If none of these works, try restoring or reinstalling iOS 7
