    Rooting will definately get you better battery life because you can use SetCPU to tell the Nook how to use the processor (or less if you tell it to run full blast all of the time). Can't speak to movies specifically but I have watched youtube for hours on end over wifi. With wifi off battery life should be even better.

    I have spoken to a user who says he gets 6 hours on movies.

    I've been reading through some Threads on Battery life. Is it recommended to allow the battery to completely drain at any time? How low should you allow the battery to get prior to charging?

    I don't think it matters and you'll probably get arguments both ways (running all the way down and charging frequently). The Nook does tend to just shut off when it gets to the lower end of the battery without warning, so you might want to start thinking about it when you see 30% or less.

    Thank you J5150P. I would have hit the Thanks button, but something is off with my settings and I no longer have access to the Thanks button on any post.
