I read that it was 10+ hours and 24 hour stand by. However, yesterday I unplugged it at 7:20 am. It sat in my purse until Lunch when I played a half hour TV show (okay 24 minutes because no commercials), then played some games. The battery looked okay, usually on my phone it's down 10%. Although I didn't have an widget, the battery in the upper right hand corner looked fine. Around 3pm I though I should shut it off, not just in sleep mode, so I pressed the button and the battery looked charged. I decided to see what I said when I plugged it in at home. At 5:50pm I plugged it in and it said "charged" and the battery symbol in the upper right hand corner looked full. I know it's said 98% and 99% before (I know some time after I used wifi and downloaded a bunch of stuff) and even 70% when I first charged it. So it can't be a default. I hope. Today I unplugged it at 6:43 am to check the manual on the device as the quick start guide didn't say anything. The manual didn't say anything either. So I'm going to test this out. I'll watch another tv show at lunch (I need some laughter during my work day... ) then watch a movie tonight (I have Harry Potter Half Blood Prince on my tablet and it's a long movie). If the battery in the upper right hand corner looks low, I'll plug it in, if not I'll wait until the next morning. Then I'll plug it in tomorrow morning and see what it says. I don't have a battery indicator app widget on there, didn't think to download one. In the meantime, Anyone know the actual battery life of this? Anyone know of a good battery indicator app I could put on this (preferably the .apk so I can sideload it as I have a hard time getting to a free wifi spot)?
