    I just got my Le pan yesterday an it came 60% charged im wondering if i should let it die and then charge fully or charge it up from 60%. And how should i go about charging in the future?

    The instructions say to fully charge it before 1St use. I was having freeze issues with mine and tech support told me to fully drain the battery to reset it. So if I were you I would charge it over night and then if you are having stability issues run that baby down til it shuts itself off. Also they must be charged with the charger and not via USB to the computer.

    how you can drain the battery down if the tablet hold (always) the 20% for itself before shutdown

    if the batt at 100% =7hrs the 20% is like 1 1/2 hrs ...how can save for itself 1 1/2 hours of work? no sense

    Well spikeman I guess "all the wat down" is relative. I am sure they mean until it shuts down.

    Yours shuts down at 20% Spike? Odd... Mine warns me at 22% and shuts down below 10%. Assuming my widget is even remotely accurate.

    Ok, I got the warning at 20% and 10 minutes later, the Tab shut Down...so let´s say that holds the 18% of energy for itself

    Yesterday I had mine run all the way to dead-ass empty with no warning whatsoever. I was playing a game, and then it turned off. Period. Zero juice. It was weird because the next time, it gave me a full pop-up window warning. It only happened once, which is really, really strange to me.

    Does anyone else notice that the battery drains when the tablet is totally shut off? I charged it yesterday and when I turned it totally off, it was at 99%. I powered it up today and it was at 83%

    That seems kind of high for totally turned off. You will see some battery leak when totally powered down with any battery but 99% to 83% sounds high for one day.

    I wonder what is causing the drain and how to remedy it? Has anyone else experienced this?

    I think leaving Wifi on when the tablet is sleeping runs the battery down. When I turn Wifi off first , the battery status is basically unchanged during the time it sleeps.

    That's a good point, you are right. Wifi will consume power if it's enabled even when the tablet is apparently sleeping.

    If you don't have any download tasks on the background, you can use Settings to disable wifi when tablet goes to sleep by default. It will disconnect from wifi, and you get booted off irc servers, etc, but you do save power. ;)
