I received mine almost first thing this morning, charged it for 3-4 hours and went to work loading about a hundred apps.
After about 7 hours run time it was down to 25% battery and asking to be plugged in, which I did but it never charged back past 70% and once I removed it from the charger it was back down to 25% within 2 hours....
Charging it again and it's been at 70% for an hour but it still says it's charging.
I know there is a lot of "advice" floating around the Internet regarding batteries, and I also know most of it's bunk so you can save that bit =p
I am just concerned I got a lemon considering one of the reviews suggested this thing should get 60 hours battery life under certain circumstances; if anyone else is having this problem, or getting the insanely long battery life expected please let me know either way.
It'd be a real shame if I had to return it as it is an absolutely awesome little device and possibly perfect for my purposes.
TLDR; What's the average battery life people are seeing?
My device's battery is exactly the same as yours. 60 hour battery is for turned-off display, basically like a mp3 without display screen:
Audio Playback Time: Max 60 Hours (Default setting, MP3 128kbps, Volume 15, Normal Sound, Display Off)
Video Playback Time: Max 8 Hours (Default setting, WMV 800 x 480, Indoor, EarPhone)
I don't think this is unusual since the screen is so large and so bright and it consumes like 80% of the power, especially when we download and install apps. I had an iphone 3gs which the battery did not last much longer even the screen is much smaller.
