View Full Version : Games and e-Books Battery Life

Hi, thinking on buying an IpT, and because my (most probably) future most used apps will be GBA emulator and e-books, was wondering how much time the battery can handle.

I havent used a stopwatch, but just in my case...

I read ebooks a lot and uses battery very slowly. You can easily read for a day without a problem.

Of course an emu uses batt much faster. Again I havent timed but usually I cant play a full day - if i guess, maybe i could play 4 or 5 hours? Something like that anyway. (Actually, I often play while plugged into my laptop anyway.)

Overall, I connect at least once a day to update podcasts and stuff, and the one charge is enough to give me a good day of usual use mixed browsing emu reading etc. I dont think I could do a whole day emu or a whole day video though.
