I had a full charge this morning. I read for an hour at lunch and then maybe 3 hours tonight and my battery looks like it is down to 1/4. WN is turned on. It seems like it is not holding a charge the way I expected. Does this sound normal?
I sure hope that is all it is. I just went to show it to a friend in the office and it had enough juice to turn it on and show him real quick then I got a message that I needed to recharge. I got about 4-5 hours out of the charge with WN on.
thanks - I leave mine off unless I need it and it is so easy to turn on now it isn't an issue to me. Even if I were getting the paper or something on I think I would just turn it on in the morning while I was getting my coffee made and it would be there when I was done.
I have K1 and no access to Whispernet - my charges are getting shorter and shorter (I only got my Kindle on 12/10). If you use MP3 player, battery life will be reduced. From my experience, connecting to USB may also reduce battery life (not sure it makes sense, but this is how I download books, so I assume it may have something to do with the fact that my battery only lasts 4-5 days ... not 10 days advertised). I've ordered a replacement battery ... supposedly on its way ... so we'll see if that is able to hold a charge longer or not.
