Non-replaceable, built-in batteries are something Apple is famous for. If your iPhone battery dies, you can't just swap out a new one. You have to send it in to Apple and let them replace it. Or you can do it yourself and say 'goodbye' to the warranty. We thought the rules around an iPad battery replacement would be similar, but they're actually far more of a pain in the butt. (iPad Insider)

As it turns out, replacing your iPad battery means replacing your iPad. The exact wording of the website is,

“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.”

The whole replacement service will run you around $106. The service itself costs $99, plus an additional $6.95 in shipping. Apple asks that all customers fully back up their data with iTunes before mailing it in for replacement. Your iPad will not be eligible for service if damaged as the result of an accident, liquid contact, or any of the other things Apple gets snippy about.
