    Not just apple devices just in general from anything more that runs on battery?

    What is the usefulness of knowing the lifespan of random batteries on random devices? My smoke detector battery lasts about 10 years.

    I was just joking around but thanks for the link. That's really useful information. I think I'll get a few of them. :)

    Just curious about other portable electronics and what they yield in battery life.


    My nook gets a month and a half of battery life (I'm a daily reader)

    My galaxy s III gets a day my iPod touch gets me 2-3 days depending on usage.

    Macbook pro about 5 or 6 hours

    Nope. I have a Nokia Lumia 620. Neat little budget smartphone. Unfortunately I live in the middle of nowhere so signal isn't the best. But I can easily average 3 days for battery life on it.
