Ok I've had this 7022-4g about a month now. Battery life stinks no matter what I do. The only way to keep a charge is to turn it completely off regardless of whether or not I turn off WIFI. I have the app for advance wifi control and it did seem to stop some but not all of the waking up from suspend mode. Auto off for WIFI is on. Actual use time is generally less than an hour if I use any WIFI connection (My wireless router is never more than 30 feet from where I am using the tablet and signal strength is alway good to excellent. Is this pretty much the norm for these things? I can go in to running services and turn off the book reader pgm that keeps lauching in the background and a few others but it seems to be pretty wimpy in terms of battery life at around an hour. Especially since most of my web browsing is text and photos and rarely any video links. I did purchase the service plan when i bought it from ToysRUs but would like to avoid that unless it is likely that this is a bad unit. They already replaced the first unit within the first 4 days I had it so they didn't record that as a use of the service plan. IF I use this service plan I will try to push for a replacement with something other than the COBY. Overall it's a nice low-end tablet but very weak if battery liife of 1-2 hours is the norm. Suggestions?
